Personalize Culture!

When teaching culture, have the students personalize the discussion by asking “What would you do …?”; “What do you think …?”; “How would you feel in this situation?”; “How is this different from your culture?” This gets the students more invested in the lesson, gives them a personal application for this new cultural knowledge, and encourages open-mindedness and self-reflection :).
