Lesson Plan

Cultural Identity and Values: What is Culture?:

This lesson gives students an opportunity to examine the complex concept of culture and to understand that while all people have a culture, for some it may mean the country or region of their ancestors, and for others it may encompass areas including family, religion and community. Students learn that no matter how it is defined, culture gives people a sense of who they are. Before students examine their own cultural backgrounds and United States culture, they will develop a working definition of culture.
