Hand-in-Hand After School Supporting Projects have been used by the Ministry of Education to enhance disadvantaged students’ learning outcome. However, we do not know if teachers’ beliefs about teaching and learning, and their multicultural education literacy affect their practice. This study uses the case study method to examine the relationship between a teachers’ teaching philosophy and her teaching behaviors in light of the teacher’s cultural backgrounds. The subject is an intern who is doing internship in a junior high school and volunteered to participate in the school’s Hand-in-Hand After School Supporting Project.
The result shows that the teacher’s cultural backgrounds have an effect on her desire to teach disadvantaged students; however, it appears that the teacher’s beliefs about teaching and learning are affected by the general education theories in her Teacher Education courses and previous extra-curricular teaching experiences. The teacher tends to treat all disadvantaged students as non-differentiated group without giving time to care for individual student’s needs, cultural backgrounds and concerns. This is due to several reasons. First, the teacher lacks the professional knowledge of the multicultural education that she needs in her teacher education program. Second, the teacher is limited by factors of insufficient time for the class, the identity problem of being an intern, lacking effective communication with school administrators, and problems of accountability and the examination system at the Junior High School. Hence, even though the teacher has good intention to teach disadvantaged students well and try giving external awards and activities to excite students, students’ improvements are minimal.
I contend in this study that teachers who participate in Hand-in-Hand After-School Supporting Projects should have the professional knowledge of the multicultural education, and school administrators need to find ways to allow better communication between teachers, administrators and students. To better serve disadvantaged students, I recommend that teachers work as a group to find ways to identify student needs and provide differentiated teaching in the Hand-in-Hand after School Supporting Projects. The results of this study may be helpful for policymakers, teacher educators, and school administrators for their policymaking, program designs and future research.
