Unit Rationale


Where people live and what they are used to in housing can vary from culture to culture.  Being able to talk about a housing layout and describe a room are basic tools for functioning in a culture.  It is also important to realize that people live in different arrangements for various reasons.  Students will show cultural sensitivity by learning to accept these differences.  Students also will examine the concept of “home” and the sense of belonging that is often attached to a place.  In an era when many people move for business to foreign cultures, being able to express what is important in a “home” may be a useful tool for them later in life.
