Development of Lesson
The lesson should begin by establishing a way for the students to relate to people of different cultures. A good idea is having the class try an ethnic food, or participating in a fun game that is rooted in a different culture.
This lesson will be most effective with the excitement of the student. The best way for the student to get the most of this assignment is by keeping it FUN!
This assignment should be a fun way for students to learn about diversity around the globe. These assignments are to be presented to their peers. One trap maybe the students proclaiming these cultures are primitive or secondary to their own. A solution to this is ensuring the student focus is on the cultural practices not the political practices.
Students will be evaluated on their ability to interpret the different cultures and systems as well as their conclusion of WHY each system is effective or used in each nation.
