Resources for Community Members
If you've recently worked with an ICSP student or group of students, we'd love to hear about your experience so that we can continue to improve our program! Please take a moment to fill out the form to the left.
Hosting an ICSP member in your classroom can be an enriching experience for your students with potential for affective and cognitive growth while reducing ethnocentrism (Campbell, J., 1987). There is an overwhelming array of possibilities and themes that can be explored.
Here we've compiled some tips and suggestions to enrich this cultural exchange. Once you have your plan, fill out a request form and we will be glad to arrange a visit.
Here we provide some ideas for topics that could be approached in an ICSP visit to encourage the recognition of cultural commonalities and appreciation of differences. However, these are mere suggestions and we encourage you to explore new perspectives and pieces of culture you consider relevant and interesting to your group.
The World Oregon provides a wide variety of resources for cultural classroom learning. A resource ICSP members often use to enhance their presentations are the Culture Boxes, which are also available for teachers to borrow for use in their classrooms. Culture Boxes are multi-media collections of artifacts and resource material designed to familiarize students with the traditions and cultures of countries around the world and the multicultural nature of American society.
