Product Description
Rather than teach students "rules", I like to teach students to be "situationally appropriate".

Successful people in life have the ability to adapt to the situation and alter their behavior depending on the context they are in.

This activity will allow students to collaborate with a partner in an interactive way to explore the idea of "situational appropriateness" or "code-switching".

Students are given three scenarios (science class, chilling at home, and concert) and then are given a set of "norms" and they have to sort them between "appropriate for the situation" and "not appropriate for the situation". They also not only have to manipulate and sort hands on items, but they have to create T-charts, doubling the learning and ensuring it "sticks".

This is a powerful way to teach the idea of code-switching and throw the old-fashioned idea of "rules" out the window!!

Powerful discussion questions included as well.
