Cultura is a web-based, intercultural project that connects American students with students in other countries. The goal is to help students gradually to construct a deeper understanding of each other’s cultures by sharing their attitudes, beliefs, and values. Participants first analyze materials from their own culture (by answering questions or remarking on an image or word), make observations, and draw preliminary hypotheses. Then, they exchange views with other students remarking on similar materials from their own cultural perspective.
