教育活动

Thursday's educational activity was completely reimagined in 2019 by some of our very own SD Mines students! The Passport Activity still gives attendees the chance to learn about many different countries from community members and college students representing their own cultures but in a new interactive and engaging approach! Please see the linked PDF below to read the instructions of the activity (instructions vary by grade).

Storytime角落

This is an integral part of Thursday's event programming. Stories, including oral retellings, are one of the basic and fun ways to communicate. Learning about different cultures and countries can be done through those children's stories. 它显示了 the cultural and gender norms of that culture/country and creates basic images of that society.

Here at the 南达科他州矿业学院 & 技术, we try to re-create this in out Storytime角落 文博会期间. Along with our community partner, 国际学生, Inc. and out students, we try to give visitors another avenue to learn about cultures/countries that are different from what we know. It also gives visitors a chance to ask questions to a native of that culture/country.

For more information, please see our 儿童故事 and Cultural Learning 讲义和 问题表 for meaningful discussion of a story.

生活图书馆

Started in Denmark in 2000, the 生活图书馆 was a tool to breakdown prejudice and discrimination. 现在, it has expanded to challenge not only prejudice and discrimination but also stereotypes and stigmas around the world. 在南方 达科他矿业学院 & 技术, we want students to learn more about a culture or country that is of interest. Our volunteers consist of SD Mines students and community members from different backgrounds.

它是如何工作的

  • 摘自 欧洲委员会, "It works just like a normal library: visitors can browse the catalog for the available titles, 选择书 they want to read, borrow it for a limited period of time. After reading, they return the book to the library and, if they want, borrow another. The only difference is that in the 生活图书馆, books are people, reading consists 谈话的内容."

如何评估

  • It's good to debrief with your students after they have finished 'reading'. If you would like us to develop something more specific for your class, please let us know. We want to make the 文化博览会 a great learning tool for you and your students.
