Review all of the previous sections of your lesson plan and
complete items in the following section prior to teaching your lesson.

Content Knowledge:
Students understand aspects from a culture different from their own
Students compare and contrast aspects of their own culture with aspects of a
different culture
Students analyze two cultures to find similarities and differences between them
Teaching Methods/Strategies:
Individual learning: Allows students to incorporate their own thoughts and
values to their presentation and guide their own learning

After presenting the lesson, I would definitely increase the time frame
by another 45-minutes. This would allow for more time to answer
questions and students would be able to have their compare and
contrast matrix revised by the teacher or peer-edited before moving on
to the presentation. Students could also use about 20 extra minutes on
the computer to research the cultural event or finish their presentation.
A list of cultural aspects that students may see would be helpful so
students know what they are looking for. This list can be done as a
class lead by the teacher before the students split up into their
individual research.
