Stories as Mirrors & Windows: Cultural Positionality

The lesson helps students understand not only what culture is and how beliefs, customs, traditions, rituals, and ways of knowing are different and similar to their own culture; additionally it will help students understand that these aspects of culture are sometimes used to unite and divide groups of people. This lesson increases students’ awareness of their own cultural positionality, which affects their perspectives of the world.
