ask permission from the appropriate authority whenever possible (e.g., before visiting a place of worship). Feel free to come up with your own cultural encounter ideas, but make sure you check with me before you carry them out. If you engage in activities that result in the mistreatment of others or do not adhere to these guidelines, you will not earn any credit for these assignments and may face additional reprimands. Here are some examples of the cultural encounters that you might consider: 1. For at least 3 hours, in at least 3 different settings, compare your experiences with those of a culturally different classmate as you attempt to rent an apartment, obtain a loan, or purchase a car, go shopping, etc. 2. For at least 3 hours, speak to family members about at least one cultural diversity issue (race, sexual orientation, religion, etc.) 3. For at least 3 hours, in at least 3 different settings, violate a cultural “norm” – E.g., hold hands with members of the same sex in a public place. 4. Interact (not just interview) with someone from a different culture for at least 3 hours. 5. With another classmate, lease or borrow a wheelchair and attempt to spend a day doing what you normally would do while sitting in the wheelchair. 6. For at least 3 hours, participate in an activity where you are the cultural “minority” The following questions should be addressed in your presentations: 1. Description of the experience (e.g., what cultural dynamics did you observe?) 2. Why did you choose this experience?/How was this experience challenging for you? 3. How did it feel to experience “otherness” at this event? 4. What insights did you gain from this experience? For your papers, please address the above 4 questions. In addition, please discuss if this experience will impact your personal and professional behaviors. If so, in what ways? If not, why not? Also, discuss how your cultural encounter relates to at least two readings (or chapters) from the course. Due: 4/21 Late Policies: All assignments are to be completed on time. I will consider accepting late assignments IF and ONLY IF you are dead (but then it is still left to my discretion). However, I will deduct 10% for every day an assignment is late. Make sure you manage your time wisely and allow enough time to complete these assignments. Ethics and Cheating: Don't do it! We're all grown-ups, with the exception of me.

Observance of Religious Holidays : If you wish to observe a cultural or religious holy day that conflicts with our class schedule, please let me know. I will be happy to reschedule assignments or to provide information about missed course material as long as you have spoken to me about your plans ahead of time. Attention: From time to time, I may need to make copies of the work you do in this class (e.g., written assignments, Powerpoint presentations, videos, etc.) for inclusion in my teaching portfolio. This does not apply to your weekly journal entries, but does apply to the “journal journey” paper. I will remove all identifying information on these assignments before making them available as documents of my teaching practices. Unless

    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.
