The Cultural

A) For this paper, using examples drawn from personal experience and/or observations, redefine a word, term, phrase, or concept that you believe is often misunderstood, misperceived, or misinterpreted about you, or your culture, so that by redefining this word, it would create empathy, understanding, and connection between people and cultures different from your own. Lastly, explain how the redefinition of this word or the distinctions made of its connotations should affect culture, society, or the self-identity of an individual. B) Or, use this opportunity to exercise some vulnerability by exploring a misperception or false assumption that you may have on a culture or community different from your own. Again, by doing so, your exploration should create a connection and understanding of different cultures, rather than what often our ego uses to divide or separate us. Essay 2 Prompts Based on: Frederick Douglass – Learning How to Read and Write Malcolm X – A Homemade Education Amy Tan – Mother Tongue Alice Walker – Beauty: When the Other Dancer Is the Self Gloria Naylor – The Meanings of a Word Importance of Vulnerability by Brene Brown (Ted Talk)Context: The readings we have done up to this point have all redefined a word, term, phrase, or concept to offer a new perspective and paradigm.  These writers used a variety of writing techniques and strategies to explain, express, and exemplify their unique cultural experiences and what has shaped their unique identities in order to not only discover purpose and passion but create connections between all cultures and people in the face of adversity and divisiveness. Prompts: Choose one of the following: 1. A) For this paper, using examples drawn from personal experience and/or observations, redefine a word, term, phrase, or concept that you believe is often misunderstood, misperceived, or misinterpreted about you, or your culture, so that by redefining this word, it would create empathy, understanding, and connection between people and cultures different from your own. Lastly, explain how the redefinition of this word or the distinctions made of its connotations should affect culture, society, or the self-identity of an individual. 2.

Again, by doing so, your exploration should create a connection and understanding of different cultures, rather than what often our ego uses to divide or separate us. Expectations/Intentions:1. Skills: Building beyond the basic foundations of an essay and the techniques we learned in the previous paper, this paper should utilize the additional essay functions and writing techniques that we’ve been learning. The functions of this paper are a mixture of exposition, expression, persuasion, and research.  I expect you to not only use expository techniques of definition but use research techniques to explore the cultural denotation, connotations, negations, stipulations, extensions, in order to create a redefinition.  I also expect you to use and strategically implement narrative and descriptive techniques such as figurative language, internal/external dialogue, sensory details, establishing tone, and establishing perspective/p.o.v.  Your writing should SHOW (express), NOT JUST TELL (explain).  I expect you to organize or structure your paper in a logical and coherent way that best fits the purpose and direction of your paper. 2. Thesis driven essay. 3. Purpose:  To expand perception in one’s paradigm or self-identity, exercise vulnerability, and create awareness and connection between cultures. 4. Audience: Directed towards a specific intended audience in order to achieve your purpose.5. 4-page minimum. MLA format.A. Reminder: Keep in mind that culture in itself is often misunderstood and misperceived. Culture is not just defined by ethnicity; it can be religion, economic/class, family structure, counter/underground cultures, music, outdoor/adventure, sports, sexual orientation, gender, work, school, learning/behavioral/physical disabilities, victimized, military, homeless, etc… We are uniquely made up of a variety of different cultures that define who we are and how we think.  However, even though cultures connect us, cultural misunderstanding also divides us.  Like what Brene Brown suggests in her research, ultimately, sharing our joys and struggles openly (being vulnerable) is the common thread that connects and unites.  The purpose of this paper is to exercise that vulnerability in order to find the common thread that can connect, unite, and create a new understanding between your cultural identity and others that are different from your own.
