Abstract

Secondary English trainee teachers at the
University of East London were asked in
October 2009 to represent their ‘culture’ in some
way using four PowerPoint slides. This article
describes some of the presentations and discusses
what is involved in the process of working out a
personal cultural identity. It refers to the notion that
‘culture is ordinary’ and suggests that managing
the tension between inducting students into
established ‘traditional’ culture, on the one hand,
and enabling them to make their own individual
meanings, on the other, is at the heart of every
teacher’s work.
