Social Norms (Project Based Learning)


Social Norms (Project Based Learning)
Project-based learning is a dynamic classroom approach in which students actively explore real-world problems and challenges and acquire a deeper knowledge.
Another integrated lesson is designed to bridge the subjects under humanities and implement PBL in high school. The topic of our research goes through different disciplines taught in school, that’s why their integration is totally justified.
The students of grade 11/1(History-Law stream) explore Social Norms within the topic Travelling. “When in Rome, do as the Romans do” is a slogan of the lesson. The English teacher and the teacher of Social Studies unite their forces and deepen the students understanding of social norms and how they influence the way we act or think. Respecting cultural norms is vital while travelling. The students introduce some important and interesting issues about following and violating the social norms of other cultures and the famous English proverb “When in Rome do as the Romans do”, means when you are visiting another place, you should follow the customs of the people in that place:
Social norms are typically defined as “rules and standards that are understood by members of a particular group or a society, and that guide or constrain social behaviors without the force of law.” ​
The students come to a common ground that social norms are shared standards of acceptable behavior by the society.
Ignorance of The Law Is No Excuse. When we travel (and equally when we are at home) there is no defense in pleading ignorance of local laws, so it is important to do your research and become familiar with some of the laws in the countries that you are going to visit.
