  1. Why do you think you drew your SAU map the way you did?
  2. What can you learn about your groupmates based on their maps?
  3. What are the commonalities and differences between your maps? 
  4. Do you think implementing this activity with the insiders of your subculture could be an effective technique to get a better insight into the culture? Why or why not?
  5. Be ready to share your responses with the rest of the class.
