    1. Describe the average weekday/weekend of the average person in your cultural group. What would a day or weekend look like for an office worker, a housewife, a child in daycare, a high school student, etc.?

    2. In small groups, assign roles to each student (working father, housewife, high school student, teacher, homeless person, criminal in prison, or any idea your group might have). Take a few minutes to consider their daily life, and then debate about who has the easiest / most difficult life in society.

    3. Reviewing the list you made on page 16 of the various parts of daily life, are there any aspects of daily life in your home country that could be considered negative by those outside your cultural group?
