My interpretations of the H principles:

H – Honor student diversity, development and their right to learn.

Teachers need to recognize the diversity presence within their classroom. It’s importantly that teachers address the topic with their students. It will create a development that allow the students with understanding of their peers as well as themselves.  Each student should be treated with the same respect and dignity and allow access to all materials available.

H1 –  Honor student diversity and development.

It’s important that teachers and students recognizes the presence of diversity in the classroom. Teachers should acknowledge the different types of the students whether it’s  their gender, culture, or limited ability, it’s important that each student understand that everyone is different. It will help the students understand diversity which then allows them to develop an understanding of themselves.

H2 –  Honor student access to content material.

Teachers should understand that every student have different access to content material based on their backgrounds. It’s important that materials in and outside the classroom are accessible to all students. Teachers also need to teach in a way that benefit all kinds of student body. The teaching styles of the teacher should be flexible and accommodate the learning styles of the students.

H3 – Honor the classroom/school community as a milieu for learning.

Teachers need to build a relationship of some sort with their students, school and community. Relationships makes the bond between people stronger and it makes people feel more comfortable when around one another. It’s important for teachers to create a positive classroom atmosphere that’s inviting in which kids can feel comfortable learning.

H4 – Honor family/community involvement in the learning process.

Teachers should set examples to their students by being involved with school programs, clubs, sports, etc. By seeing the teachers being involved in the school, students will take initiative in becoming involved themselves. Teachers should reach out to the parents of the students in order to make a connection with the student lives outside of the classroom.
