An experiential and interactive lesson plan for appreciating difference
This session was born from an invitation some years ago to speak to a group of international university students on the topic of "why it is difficult to make American friends." When I arrived, I discovered that the students had grouped themselves by nationality and/or language. Unwittingly, the students engaged in their classroom in the same exclusionary behavior which they claimed to dislike in the majority population. This session demonstrates the series of activities I used to move the students toward self-awareness and intercultural empathy.
