Cultural Norms at School “You’ll get in trouble to take a seat in cafeteria unless you don’t have any friends with you to go there. Since they pick a seat on the very first day of the school, they don’t move at all. It’s not like in our country that sit randomly in lunch time and go anywhere you like…”

Activity Understanding Cultural Differences in Student Behavior () Directions: On your card, you have either a perceived behavior or a possible cultural explanation . Read your card. Find the person with the corresponding card. For example, your perceived behavior card might read “Student avoids eye contact.” Look for the person who has the possible cultural explanation card for that perceived behavior. A match might read “Keeping eyes downcast may be a way of showing respect. In some cultures, direct eye contact with a teacher is considered disrespectful and a challenge to a teacher’s authority.” With your partner, discuss how these cultural differences might be perceived. What challenges might these cultural differences present in an American school context?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
