In this discussion, you will share your “culture” with classmates. Instead of writing paragraphs to accomplish this task, we are going to make some digital art.
In a separate document, make a list of all the things that make up or describe your culture. There are lots of reflective ideas in this week’s readings (PDF FILE BELOW) to help you get started. A truly effective list will have 25 or more different descriptors… Think about all of the things that are obvious about you and then think about what’s below the surface. What elements of your culture can we not see by looking at you?
