After reflecting on the depiction of American culture in the reading “Body Ritual Among the Nacirema” by Miner from Topic 2, record a 5-8-minute reflection video about American culture.
- Your video should start with 1-2-minute reflection on your reaction to the article and how it depicted American culture.
- Then take about 2 minutes to describe a communication pattern, practice, ritual, or event in your culture as it might be seen from an outside observer (not one that is addressed in the article). Explain how this communication pattern, ritual, or event is connected to a U.S. cultural worldview or values.
- Next, spend 1-2 minutes describing how this pattern, practice, ritual or event has changed throughout history.
- Finally, spend 1-2 minutes, briefly share your evaluation of these changes as beneficial or detrimental to U.S. culture. When evaluating the change as beneficial or detrimental, include at least one verbal citation of a credible or authoritative source that supports your evaluation.
