"Fools Rush In": Developing Cross-Cultural Sensitivity Using Film-Based Group Projects.
Tidwell, Charles H., Jr.
Although role playing games and self-awareness surveys are typical methods of developing cross-cultural sensitivity, this presentation advocates the use small group projects focusing on feature films such as "Fools Rush In" as an effective class or training exercise to develop sensitivity to other cultures. Despite some disadvantages including time constraints, the advantages include a clearer visualization of theory and concepts, a more specific cultural focus often missing from more traditional techniques, and an important entertainment factor. In addition to describing the methodology used to incorporate feature films into the classroom, illustrations are used stemming from student group projects based on "Fools Rush In."
