Module 3 – Case
In this module, you will engage in your cross-cultural experience. To document your experience, prepare a 5-minute video or a PowerPoint presentation with photos (at least 6 slides) describing the experience. This assignment should be strictly factual, as if you were preparing a news story on the event. You want to convey to the reader the look and feel of the contact experience or event. Concentrate on “who, what, when, where, and how.” The “why” question is what we will focus on in the Module 4 Case Assignment.
· Your presentation should be professionally prepared, as if you were making a presentation to your boss.
· Presentations should be thoroughly edited and error-free.
· Any photos should be accompanied by descriptions naming the participants and circumstances.
· PowerPoint presentations may include voice-overs or other audio (e.g., music representative of the culture.)
Need pictures and description of the San People/Culture. Thank you
Module 3 – SLP
The SLP for this module involves taking a look at the stereotypes we have of our own culture—and that of another culture. Begin by assessing your stereotypes by filling out the following instrument: Assessing Your Stereotypes . Then, in your weekly journal, reflect on the following questions:
1. What was the score for your own group? For the other group?
2. What did the Assessing Your Stereotypes instrument reveal about the stereotypes you hold about your own and the other culture?
3. How can the concept of social identity be used to explain your scores?
4. What other insights have you gained about stereotypes from this questionnaire, the readings, and other aspects of the course so far that will be valuable to you in leading across different cultures?
The following reading on Social Identity Theory may help you address questions 3 and 4 above:
