Unintentional Harm

This lesson will challenges participants to think more deeply about scenarios that cause unintentional harm. They will first identify several situations where they have either experienced or caused unintentional harm. Then, they will place those scenarios on a Jamboard shared with several group members and reflect on how they felt and how they might have handled the situation differently.

Emic Perspective

This lesson presents the concepts of etic (outsider/objective) and emic (insider/subjective) understanding of culture. The slides explain the differences in these two perspectives, offer motivation for developing emic perspectives by discussing the value of this viewpoint, list some strategies for learning to see a culture from the insider viewpoint, and use concrete (published) case study examples as fodder for practice and instruction.
