Topic: Culture and its influence – After you have read the literature posted under unit three, the assignment is to write a two-page paper discussing culture, social mores, customs, cultural relativism, and moral relativism. As you write, choose a country and research that countries culture, its history, the family, educational system, its treatment of women, children and the elderly. What is its legal system, political system, how is information communicated among people, what is its literacy rate, what is its infant mortality rate, what is its life expectancy? What makes these people unique? What social customs are open to outsiders, which are closed? What are its religious preferences and following? How would you describe their standard of living? Their housing? Do they live with multiple generations? What is the role of women? Ultimately this paper should define a nations and its people. You will have to show you have read the readings and some additional sources. This does not mean to just quote from all the material, but go beyond that in presenting/discussing the arguments made in each reading. I would like your informed opinions included in the paper.
Additional Research – Demonstrate that you have done additional Internet research on this topic by including three additional cited sources in your paper. By this, I mean three sources beyond the readings I listed in the Course Documents link. Proper citing of these sources in the narrative of your paper is required. Two pages, double spaced, not including Title or Works Cited Page. This means the paper should be 600-750 words. As with all papers prepared for this course, content in individual papers is expected to be supported by globally acknowledged, peer-reviewed, refereed research citations and sources. All written submissions should adhere to APA standards for writing, formatting, and citations/references.
