Essential Question 2

How do insider/outsider perspectives change how we see each other?

You have investigated how being an insider or an outsider changes how we see things.  First, you read Funny in Farsi and discovered how individuals react differently to one another based on their views of citizenship, cultural identity, education, familial relationships, language, and religion.  Second, you looked into national identities through the World Public Opinion Polls and discovered that two underlying belief systems about government and economy shape the way we see things.  Finally, you looked at how different points of view can impact specific situations or events through the Danish Cartoon Controversy.

Now, look at the Islamic Cultural Center being built at Park 51.  Explore the insiders and outsiders of this situation and determine if the players are acting as responsible citizens.
