Intercultural Capability / Levels 7 and 8 / Cultural Diversity
Content description
Identify the challenges and benefits of living and working in a culturally diverse society
  1. asking students to imagine themselves in the future or in another country and provide a range of prompts for them to address, such as ‘What does society look like?’, ‘How important is it that society is inclusive?’ or ‘If you could live in another country, where would you go and why?’ and ‘What skills might you need?’
  2. identifying attributes that help people forge positive intercultural relationships, such as curiosity, sensitivity, empathy and kindness
  3. holding a student-led discussion or role-play about the social challenges that arise from cultural diversity, for example, how people from different backgrounds with different levels of attainment in English experience contemporary Australian society, such as at the local supermarket, when applying for a job, or watching the news
  4. creating a portfolio that identifies the characteristics of a ‘monocultural’ society and those of a ‘multicultural’ society , and using reflective prompts to challenge students assumptions, such as by identifying various sub-cultures within each type of society
  5. prompting students to identify the criteria they would use to help decide where to live if they were migrating to another country, and extend advanced students by introducing challenges into the scenario, such as linguistic or economic restrictions
