Here’s our suggested use:
Start with Culture. Culture. Culture.
-This will teach students the basics of what makes a culture and allow to explore their own.
Then, move on to Cultivating Cultural Intelligence.
-This will allow your students to dig deeper into culture and what it means for other people. Students will unpack their cultures and move beyond a basic understanding. They will also learn the meaning of cultural intelligence and why it is so important to have.
Finally, you will teach the Create Your Own Culture Unit.
-You will take one aspect of each student’s culture and plan various short lessons going into the history of it. This should be stretched out for the entire year, with students have a few lessons about their classmates each month. A template has been provided to make planning and presenting engaging lessons quick and easy. They will learn about the history and global connection of one part of each student’s culture.
We hope you and your students enjoy this!
