In this three day lesson students will contemplate the role cultural exchange has played in their own lives and will connect their own personal experiences to those of citizens in other countries. Students will read primary sources and view images (both first order and second order) to learn the various ways (trade, religion, pop culture, technology) in which cultural exchange takes place as well as the impact of cultural exchange from different perspectives. In the end students will be able to analyze both the positive and negative consequences of cultural exchange, especially as more dominant economies flood the marketplace with their products. At a deeper level students will empathize with how the cultural dominance of more affluent countries can often cause other countries to feel overwhelmed and threatened thereby interpreting the actions of the more affluent nations as a form of cultural imperialism. By this students will develop a more powerful schema for understanding international resentment toward wealthier nations.
