Assignment 2: Discussion—Understanding Cultures

People often go through life without having made any connection to cultures besides their own. This not only hinders one’s personal development but it also limits one’s ability to fully grasp the nature of other people’s lives. In this assignment, you will explore a culture of your choice, one that you might want to know more about.

Using the readings for this module, the Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet, do the following:

  • Reflect on a culture that is interesting to you, but one with which you are personally unfamiliar.

Discuss the following:

  • If you were to meet someone who belonged to that culture, what five questions would you ask to engage that person in a conversation?

Be sure that these questions reflect the research standards suggested in the textbook chapter entitled “Researching Culture” and consider the sensitivity to cultural differences. In addition, ensure that the questions you pose are substantive in nature and do not merely elicit a yes or no response.

Write your initial response in 1–2 paragraphs. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.

By Saturday, March 19, 2016, post your response to the appropriate Discussion Area. Through Wednesday, March 23, 2016, review and comment on at least two peers’ responses.
