Teaching intercultural competence

Openness, curiosity and respect towards alternative ways of thinking should be key values that pervade our education system. As Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie says:

“The consequence of the single story is this: It robs people of dignity. It makes our recognition of our equal humanity difficult. It emphasizes how we are different rather than how we are similar.”

Here are two teaching resources to raise your students’ awareness of the importance of avoiding stereotyping.
