The Developmental Model of Intercultural Sensitivity
Welcome to the week 3 discussion. As culturally aware as we may be, we all see the world through the lenses of our own cultural experiences, and even the greatest among us struggle to understand people who are different from us. For this discussion, review the Developmental Model of Intercultural Sensitivity on pages 81-85 of the Learning through Serving text.
Please respond to all the following items in your initial post by Sunday. In addition, engage with your classmates by making comments and/or asking questions that build upon your peer’s posts.
- Which one of these six stages do you find yourself in?
- Why do you think that is?
- What could do to climb to the next level?
- Remember, we are all learning and growing here, so there are no right or wrong answers, so long as we are being honest with ourselves and others.
Each week, you will be asked to respond to the prompt or prompts in the discussion forum. Your initial post should be 75-150 words in length, and is due on Sunday. By Tuesday, you should respond to two additional posts from your peers.
