Step 1: Answer the following prompts:
- Some countries around the world have populations where most citizens subscribe to the same culture (monoculture) and some have citizens from varied cultures. Would you prefer to live in a monoculture or a multi-cultural society? Why? Give at least one example of a benefit of your choice.
- Based on your own experiences, discuss the various ways in which a dominant culture influences in a population can influence the values, attitudes and behavior of co-cultures. Please give at least one example.
- Cultural practices are not stagnant, but instead do shift over time. Imagine how the American home might change in the next twenty years and how those changes might affect the families who reside in them. Which of the customs we follow today do you think will look strange to the next generation?
