Click on the icon to download the worksheet


It is healthy for young people to learn about what makes some people different from others and what attracts them to strange or even bizarre interests. As they find their way in the world, they may be attracted to these subcultures themselves, or they may find them repulsive. And why are some people so derisive of 'mainstream' culture? There's a lot to learn!

This worksheet is suitable for high-school or college discussion classes. It is designed to examine different sides of the issue without being judgmental.

It includes a warm-up discussion, a reading section on various subcultures, a discussion section and further references.

It is expected to take 1 - 2 hours to complete this activity.
