Lesson Plan


Gochenour, T. (1993). The albatross. In T. Gochenour (Ed.), Beyond experience, (2nd ed., p. 119-127). Intercultural Press.

As a result of this activity, participants will be able to: 1. Experience unfamiliar cultural norms. 2. Reflect on their reactions and feelings to unfamiliar and perhaps disconcerting cultural norms. 3. Reflect on how we can infer a lot of useful information from what we observe and learn what is expected of us, but also that things don't always mean what they seem.
