AN EXPERIENCE OF INTER-CULTURAL EDUCATION IN AN EVOLUTIONARY CLASS

DAMIANO LONGO

Abstract


In this paper, students inter-cultural competence in an American classroom
has been discussed. An ideal classroom has been created where students with
experience abroad can refer to their own experience in order to share their own
background with others. Instructors could take advantage of this source of real
cultural exchanges without modifying the syllabus of the course. In this way, learners
could develop their critical competence by using the intercultural approach. Learners
could not only know another culture avoiding discrimination and developing tolerance
but also be inter-cultural people with the experience of their own life.
