My Culture: Yoruba provides teachers, educators and social workers with a quick introduction to Yoruba culture, from which the majority of Black African children in the UK derive. In recent years, high levels of migration have resulted in significantly larger proportions of children from this ethnic group in British schools, particularly those in larger cities. In some places this has represented a drastic change in demographics. Most schools quickly become aware that the differences between British and Yoruba culture have a significant bearing on their interaction with pupils and their families. These differences sometimes lead to conflict and difficulties in communication, which in turn impact pupils' learning. This book serves as a bridge to help teachers understand these differences and empowers them to interact with the culture from an informed perspective. It covers the history of the Yoruba people, cultural norms and values, child rearing practices and how these differ from British culture. The book provides educators who are relatively new to the culture group with valuable insights into the psyche of Yoruba culture. It treats cultural conflict sympathetically and sheds some light on the struggles bi-cultural Yoruba children face. It highlights some day-to-day issues that teachers and educators may encounter
