    intellectual growth which is ultimately what we want to accomplish in the classroom” (2011). I plan to thoroughly assess my biases so that I can further assist my students with becoming better readers, writers, and critical thinkers. I was raised in a house hold where my siblings and I were taught to stand up for what we believe in no matter the ridicule we may face as a result of our beliefs.

    statements that would not have been labelled as evidence can otherwise become evidence under certain conditions.

As rewarding as many of these opportunities have been,…

    Maybe we should look beyond that. It is part of our history and was written by men at a time when women did not have equality like there is these days. Women have come so far since then. The Bible is very important to a lot of people and cherished by both men and women. Is it because these women choose to look beyond the bias in order to read and love a book? Most likely, yes!

    In this way, I would be better able to engage with the family and begin to build a therapeutic alliance. Ignorance of the culture also likely plays a big influence in my own personal biases. As a former military veteran, serving in a conflict involving a culture that was predominantly Muslim, my bias towards the fact that the family is Muslim, evidenced by their use of the Koran, is a reality. In addition to my own personal experience, I am subject to the daily influence of mainstream media…
