In "Avoiding the" it's a small world" effect: a lesson plan to explore diversity.", Jason L.
Endacott and Freddie A Bowles discuss the ironic reminder that our understanding of other
cultures often lacks authentic detail much like the ride in the Fantasyland area at Disney World
in Florida named Its a Small World.

The authors propose a lesson with 4 stages for learners to understand the culture, referring to
the way a group of people live together, and the concepts, meaning beliefs, diversity,
similarities, and differences. Social Studies is the perfect platform to help students find their
way to have competent knowledge and acceptance of theirs and others cultures. The classroom
today of our younger students, 42% will have a household with one family member that is
fluent in more than one language.

First, the lesson is to introduce the actual Its a Small World ride to your students possibly
with a social media tool like you tube. As the educator break out your students into cooperative
learning groups. Have them make T charts with Culture on one side and Universal on the
other. The students will have time to brainstorm and come up with ideas for both columns. By
having the students use these 2 words it will guide the students toward the aspects that
everybody in the world addresses daily in one way or another. Second, the lesson is to discuss
Cultural beliefs and values. The students will follow the same model as last lesson breaking out
into groups and creating a T chart but this time using the terms Beliefs and Values. It is
important for the students to understand their different cultural values and beliefs are to be
respected. Third, the lesson is to identify many different approaches to values and cultural
universals through pictures. The students will view many pictures from all over the world and
consider what they see, how to describe the people in the pictures, if there are different or
similar universals to theirs in the pictures, and how the values look the same or different from
their own. Fourth, and last stage of the lesson is to have the students reflect through writing on
the 3 previous stages of this lesson. Have them write about how these cultural universals can
help them understand values or beliefs of others.

In conclusion, the 4 stage lesson presented by the authors hopefully will guide teachers with
tools for themselves and their students to have a better understanding of authentic culture.
