6. WHAT DO WE KNOW
o Tell your stories
o Culture is the beliefs, values, mindsets, and practices of a group
of people. It includes the behavior pattern and norms of that
group—the rules, the assumptions, the perceptions, and the
logic and reasoning that are specific to a group.
o Values are a culture’s standard for discerning what is good and just in society. Values are
deeply embedded and critical for transmitting and teaching a culture’s beliefs. Beliefs are the
tenets or convictions that people hold to be true. Individuals in a society have specific beliefs,
but they also share collective values.
o An intercultural environment is where members of different
cultures interact and live together.
o Culture is not civilization
