This journal is focused on the process of acculturation and how you became a member of a specific culture of your choice. I want you to focus on acculturation and not enculturation because the process of enculturation can be difficult to remember if it’s something that we have been a member of since birth.
You should pick one culture that you belong to and go through your process of becoming a member and the traits/characteristics/practices that you are now involved in within that culture.
Your paper should be at least 2 pages in length and follow the formatting guidelines on the syllabus. Unlike the first journal, this will be a traditional essay format with a brief intro, at least 2 paragraphs, and a brief conclusion.
Briefly discuss what the culture is and what traits/characteristics/commonalities exist within that culture. Write this as if we are completely unfamiliar with the culture; assume we know nothing about it.
Showcase the beginning of your involvement. What got you interested? Who was the first person to show you? What was the defining moment that made you believe that you were a member?
