When asked to define "culture", my students usually mention food, traditions, and holidays. But there's so much more involved in culture, so I developed an acronym to help students remember that culture involves history, geography, the humanities, economy, rituals, customs, and politics. Then I designed different notes pages for different types of learner: graphic notes (black and white and color) for visual learners, gap-fills for active listeners, completed notes to use as a handout, and blank notes to use as the basis for a lecture. These are great tools to introduce students to a complex but critically important idea!
