Culture Crossing works as a global resource for students and many other people to further their cross-cultural exploration by allowing them to find information on over 200 countries. The information on these country guides is submitted by either natives or residents of the featured countries, and it is checked for credibility by cross referencing with a variety of sources. Therefore, it is important to keep in mind that the information is generalized and holds the purpose of introducing people to the diversity of groups between communities. Teachers can use this guide to introduce Stage 2 students to some of the basic cultural tips and brainstorm the diversities within and between communities in small groups. The students can then research the chosen communities in depth and come back to Culture Crossing website to add their cultural knowledge to the guide. The guide may be checked by the teacher to assess students’ understanding on the diversity of groups between various communities, and can be used to respond to each child individually, giving feedback for further research or related activities. It is also possible to get students to work on activity guides, provided on this website, with their families which is an enormous opportunity to encourage them to go on a cultural adventure at home. According to Hall & Hall (1990), “Each culture has its own way of seeing and doing things, based on unstated rules, and these hidden differences often make cooperation difficult”. I believe Culture Crossing would be a great start to help students to break the “logjam” caused by culturally based misapprehensions, by showing students how groups of a common culture share information, methods of coding and retrieving information.
