For this assignment, first select a culture learning experience that you consider to have been significant for you personally and then analyze your experience using the conceptual frameworks provided by the Developmental Model of Intercultural Sensitivity, intercultural competence, Kolb’s Learning Style Theory, and the Intensity Factors.
You should briefly describe the experience (1-2 pages) and then the remainder of the paper should be an analysis that answers these questions:
1. What do you think was happening in terms of Bennett’s Developmental Model of Intercultural Sensitivity (DMIS)? Make sure to at least include where you would place yourself on the model during the time of the experience.
2. In addition to DMIS, what insights can you gain about this experience from Storti and St. Onge’s approaches to intercultural competence?
3. Which intensity factors (Paige, 1993) were most significant? Briefly explain. It’s best to focus on a few of the factors that were most significant, rather than to cover all the factors; go for depth not breadth here.
4. Describe any aspects of your learning preference and learning style that are particularly relevant to this learning experience.
Length: 250 words per page, approximately 8-9 pages in total, including the description of your experience.
Requirements: Use APA style when referencing any course materials, as well as the readings.
Write an essay that responds to the questions above –do not simply answer the questions. Include an introduction and conclusion in your paper.
