Various Cultural Groups
You will read at least 3 scholarly sources on your cultural group of interest (the resources must be published within the last 10 years). A pertinent, unassigned chapter from the McGoldrick et al. text may count as 1 of these resources; however, the Hays & Erford text chapters may not count as a source. You must also use the Internet or media to examine at least 3 significant media sources related to the culture. For example, on the Internet, you may find the following types of resources that are both culturally useful and prominent: · Online newspapers from the selected country, · Internet radio broadcasts, · Music from the country/group, · Movies or videos, · Culture-specific online magazines or websites, and/or · Organizations. You will answer the questions listed below. First person may be used in your answers, and you must observe correct and current APA style. The paper must have a correct title page, and you must use a reference page if you cite resources (no abstract is needed). A word estimate is beside each question; however, the quality of your answer is more important than the word count. You may expand further, but you do not have to do so. It is recommended that you use the following questions as level 1 headings to organize your paper (you can shorten the question into a level 1 heading/title). A template is provided for this assignment to help with APA formatting and organization. 1. What are some key things you have learned about this culture through reading the scholarly sources?
