What is culture?
We all belong to a culture.
Culture is the combination of:
· human knowledge
that we learn and pass on to future generations.
We usually express our culture in certain ways, like
· how we dress
· what we eat
· what we believe
· even how we played as kids
For your first blog post, due by Wednesday at 11:59pm, I would like you to write 1-2 paragraphs on what culture you most closely identify with. You may base this blog post on different cultures and groups that we have discussed in class. You may include pictures and video clips in your post if you would like, but you still must write 1-2 paragraphs. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
