This assignment allows students to dentify and critically analyze a portion of their own cultural identity.
Step 1: Listen and take notes on the lecture on Family.
Step 2 : In a 200-300 word post, answer at least two of the following questions reflecting on your own conscious and unconscious learning that took place growing up in your family: a. What was the attitude toward the elderly? (e.g. honor and respect?)
b. Was competition or cooperation stressed? How?
c. who had the most power/influence? (Who made the major decisions?)
d. What religion or worldview was practiced?
e. If you had a sibling(s) of a different gender identity, did you notice diffent child-rearing practices? What were some of those differences? Be specific.
Don’t forget to integrate course terms from the lecture on Family. (Be sure to apply the suggestions from Analyzing versus Summarizing in modules.)
Please note: You must first post your own original initial response (at least 200 words in length) before viewing the initial responses of your classmates. Do not post a blank response first and then view the responses of your classmates as doing so will compromise the originality of your own response and result in points being deducted from your score on the assignment or a grade of “0” (zero).
