This PowerPoint includes discussion points as well as a "4-Corners" Activity to get the students up and moving and talking about cultural norms.
Students are asked to write a guide to cultural norms in a fictitious place (this links directly to an activity from "Middle School Lessons on Culture - 1") and then present their guide to the class. Finally, students are given prompts to write a reflection in their blog or journal.
This is a lesson on Cultural Contexts / Cultural Norms. It is an extension of Lesson 1. This is for a 90-minute class or two 45-minute classes.
The objectives are:
1. I can define “cultural context.”
2. I can understand how unwritten rules of culture help determine behavior.
After this lesson your students will have a good understanding of cultural context and cultural norms.
