Supplementary Culture Article: Disability, Difference, and Left-handedness in China and America

Standard

This is another great article from the VOA Student Union website that I use in culture class to help my students compare and contrast cultures. This particular article explores the views toward disability and difference in their home country, China, and the United States, the country we’re studying. The article is written by Dandan, a Chinese student studying in America, so the article gives a good perspective that my Chinese students can relate to. Articles like this are invaluable for helping my students develop both cultural knowledge and a broader perspective in life.
