Center for Educational Research and Evaluation
To date, there has been no literature published concerning the application of culturally responsive teaching to prevention of areca nut chewing. In order to examine the obstacles to the mainstream preventive education and pioneer culturally responsive teaching on areca nut chewing, the researcher of this paper attempted, through repeated action research, to record the individual and educational experiences with third and fourth graders on areca nut plantations, conduct the fieldwork, establish the applied theater and tour the theatrical company, and organize gatherings of elderly people in local communities and schools.School education is meant to augment school-age children’s cultural capital and to be the way that increases social mobility. However, the fact that current areca nut preventive education is limited to the threat to health and stigmatization may well act as a deterrent to schoolchildren before they chew it. It is not sufficient to release them from addiction in real life. The research found that the impoverished children in areca nut plantations are potentially subject to environmental and peer influence, and become involuntary addicts. The parental teaching by words and by examples may develop schoolchildren’s confidence to say “I won’t chew areca nut when I grow up.” Furthermore, disregard of the children's cultural diversity may cause an impediment to their learning behaviors, and denial of their family social capital can stimulate a sense of alienation from schooling. To conclude, this research re-examines the mainstream preventive education on areca nut chewing, and further introduces culturally responsive teaching, which is intended to raise school’s cultural capital along with school-age children’s family cultural capital, providing shared understanding and constant companionship, and develop the strong capacity of the peer group to recognize and to that end to increase children’s family social capital.
