Description/Instructions: Each team of students will develop a power point online presentation on the health-related beliefs and practices of a selected cultural group. You are encouraged to choose a group that you encounter in your school setting and/or that your group has a genuine interest in learning more about. However, it is recommended that the group chooses a cultural group that they are not very familiar with. Student groups will be developing an online power point presentation that is accompanied by a written narrative/speaker notes to post for class members. Discussion questions will also be developed and facilitated by the group.
Each team of students will develop a power point online presentation on the health values, beliefs and practices of a cultural group in the culture of choice. Groups are encouraged to choose a culture that your group has genuine interest in learning more about.
The power point should include approximately 20 slides including two discussion questions at the end for class members to respond to. It is the responsibility of all the group members to participate in facilitating a discussion.
