This teaching unit aims to help understand stereotypes and different ethnic identities to reflect on our own cultural background and to find better ways to handle multicultural situations in class. When teaching multicultural classes, it is necessary to become aware of the stereotypes at the individual, familiar, cultural or religious levels that lie behind our world views. Only then it is possible to search for common intercultural values in classrooms, based on equality and on the right to be different
The unit, developed within the Pestalozzi Programme, can be used at initial or in-service training of teachers in all levels of education.
