This module is designed to highlight for students the realities of cultural values within their communities. It allows them to compare the images they have of being Irish with the reality as experienced at community level. It helps them to appreciate how diversity can enrich communities. Based on the theme of interculturalism, the module incorporates aspects of the concepts of Democracy, Rights and Responsibilities, Human Dignity, Interdependence, and Development. Each activity has one or more “concept icons” attached to it so that teachers can easily identify which concepts are being covered by a particular activity. The module can be used to supplement other materials on community or as an alternative way of introducing community.
