INTERCULTURAL TRAINERS KIT

INTERCULTURAL TRAINERS KIT
FOR MIGRANTS’ EDUCATORS

Promoting mutual understanding and cultural dialogue

Teaching techniques: Give away words (Discouraging factor #5)

  • Factor #5: Feeling of exclusion from the group (classmates)

Learning Objectives:

To think about the strength from the other group members and give them feedback

Time:

5 to 10 minutes

Necessary Materials:

  • Per participant 1 sheet of paper, pencil, tape

Description of the activity:

  1. Each participant sticks a tape on another person’s tape with a piece of paper on his back.
  2. Then everyone writes a positive message to someone else on the slip of paper that they carry on their backs. The messages should always be positive because it also strengthens the group.
  3. However, not every participant has to write something down to everyone else, but only to those who you want to share
  4. The messages are pseudo-anonymous: you do not have to come out, but often it is still clear from whom a message comes.
