Intercultural Capability / Levels 3 and 4 / Cultural Practices
Content description
Compare their own and others cultural practices, showing how these may influence the ways people relate to each other
  1. comparing the expression of common concepts or human experiences in a range of cultural settings, for example, life milestones and celebrations, learning from older family/community members, demonstrating an emotion
  2. exploring rules or expectations within the school or classroom, for example, raising a hand before asking a question, using manners or wearing a uniform, and discussing how these may help foster a culture of respect for other students and teachers
  3. researching a cultural practice, for example Japanese origami, or a cultural artefact, for example a kilt, and asking students to explain the significance to other students
  4. discussing aspects of Australian culture that might seem ‘strange’ from another perspective, such as eating kangaroo or having an outlaw as a national hero, and contrast with other cultural practices that students may find ‘strange’, such as the Spanish practice of eating twelve grapes at New Years Eve
