  1. I love this. So much. I am using it for my class

    • Thanks, I am kind of proud of this lesson. Its a fun way to introduce students to the concept of cross cultural comparison. It’s also a good Christmas lesson. The blog has become an effective instructional tool. You can use your blog to link to Online PowerPoint presentations and related Youtubes and the students can go back to the post/page for review. Its a lot easier for the students to find a lesson on a blog than on some university e-learning system. I really should write a paper on the topic one of these days.
