Culture Exploration

Students in World Literature spent the quarter exploring the question: What is culture and where does it come from? We read fiction and non-fiction articles and stories. The class created a culture framework to explain our deepening understanding of what culture is.Students determined that culture is: Family, religion, food, language, dress, traditions, spirituality, music, holidays, and more. Students’ culture project was an opportunity for each student to learn more about their own culture or a culture they were interested in learning more about. The students researched their culture using the framework lens we created in class. The research could include interviews with family, reflection on their own experiences, as well as online research.
