Who doesn't love talking about themselves and their backgrounds? I use this in Sociology when talking about culture, and students seem to enjoy it. They are to choose some of the topics I have listed on the page and assemble something portraying their chosen culture. Also, there are questions they are to answer so you can ensure their understanding of the many areas of culture and how it relates to them. I do teach in NJ, so that's in there near the top, feel free to alter that as needed.
