After watching The Visitor I was really moved. The Visitor was a story about a professor who discovers a foreign couple living in his apartment. After finding out the couple are illegal immigrants and they have no where to stay, he lets them stay with him. While staying at the apartment the professor begins to build close bonds with the couple. While out with the Professor, Torek the drummer is stopped by police officers because of racial profiling and is arrested for not having a green card. The professor ends up helping Torek fight his case and finds himself with meaning again in his life.
This movie really moved me because it showed the struggles and biases immigrants face in this country. As a physical education teacher I will encounter a lot of diverse students with this new multicultural age. Understand the struggles they face and adopting a multicultural way of teaching is the first step in fostering a non-bias classroom. There are many things that make up a good teacher and cultural competence is a big one.
