Cultural sensitivity is an essential personal skill for
improving relationships and creating a more accurate worldview. Being
culturally sensitive is also important in order to succeed academically,
professionally, and to compete in today’s global marketplace. With Getting
To Know You (Cultural Sensitivity), your students will learn what cultural
sensitivity is, why it’s important, and what they can do to become more
culturally sensitive. Videos provide examples of cultural differences and
honest discussions about diversity and the issues related to it. Activities and
resources give students opportunities to face common roadblocks to cultural
sensitivity and to explore other cultures.
LAPs are comprehensive instructional packages that include all elements of a performance-oriented lesson plan. This LAP includes a student handout (with CopyIT! permission) that includes information about cultural sensitivity, a (So What?) discussion of why it's important to learn, and a short (Gray Zone) case addressing ethical issues. The instructor section features a comprehensive discussion guide, complete practice- (short answer) and post-tests (multiple-choice) with descriptive keys, student activities, and more.
As an added bonus, instructors will receive a second version of the student guide—in color and designed specifically for use on electronic devices. This additional student guide is easier for instructors to share with students via email, shared drive, or learning management system and easier for students to view and read electronically.

Bring your discussions to life with our PowerPoint presentation featuring a broad range of graphics and special effects to help keep students interested. This professionally produced presentation consists of 14 slides.
