About This Resource

This lesson is a simple, cross-cultural-contact simulation. Through experiencing and debriefing the potential that cross-cultural contact has for conflict and misunderstanding, students develop their perspective consciousness and recognize the need for tolerance, acceptance, communication, and compromise when interacting with people from diverse cultural backgrounds. This is an updated lesson from the BCTF/CIDA Global Classroom Initiatives.
