Cultural Differences and Agricultural Education

In today's class we discussed how classroom cultural norms vary across the world.  Interested in learning more?  Check out the "Supplemental Reading" folder found within the "Resources" folder on ANGEL.  There I have posted a practice dialogue found in a Korean "Agricultural English" textbook.

The dialogue is found in the chapter on companion animals.  Consider the following:
  • What was surprising to you about this dialogue?
  • Can you see elements of Korean culture in this dialogue?
  • What would you expect in a dialogue on this topic coming from a U.S. American cultural perspective?
