Uncommon Folk: Culture and Experience

Encourage students to compare the traditions of other ethnicities with their own culture and experience. What customs and rituals are similar, and which are different? Do any of the traditions overlap with their own? Teach respect for different ideas and people. Talk about the elements that are common to everyone. For example, people from different cultures wear distinctive costumes or clothing for special occasions or holidays.
