I need someone to complete a two part assignment. The first part of the assigment is due on 11/14 and the second will be due by Saturday, 11/16.
Part One Due 11/14: Complete this discussion before completing the journal reflection.
Teenage culture has always been challenging to navigate. Fortunately, the clique called the Plastics knows just what it takes to fit in with their group. In this discussion, you will use an anthropological lens to examine a brief scene in the movie Mean Girls.
As you watch this scene, look for each of the following concepts from the Anthropological Core Concepts: assimilation, cultural symbol, political systems, and ethnocentrism. After identifying each concept within the clip, select one concept to focus on in this discussion.
In your initial post (1 – 3 paragraphs), do the following:
- Identify which of the four anthropological concepts you selected.
- Define the concept and include an appropriately formatted citation.
- Analyze how the concept is represented within the movie scene.
Please cite at least two resources in APA format.
Part Two Due 11/16: Overview: Two videos (one on food and one on language) offer interesting comparisons and will help you practice applying cultural relativism in preparation for the final project.
Prompt: Complete the module discussion before completing this journal assignment. Then, view Texans Trying to Pronounce WI City Names (cc) (2:36) and Would You Eat It? 10 Weird Foods We Dare You to Try (cc) (6:14). Choose one of these videos to focus on as you make connections between cultural norms, language, and personal identity. In your journal assignment, you will explain the cultural norms and values you see presented in the video and then note how these cultural norms and values are different than your own. You will explain how you practiced cultural relativism as you developed conclusions and ways that you can apply your learning experience in this journal assignment to your film analysis in the final project.
Be sure that your journal assignment includes each of the following critical elements:
Cultural Norms and Values: Identify the cultural norms and values with specific examples from the video.
Cultural Comparison: Describe how the cultural norms and values you identified are similar to or different from your own norms and values. Be sure to offer specific details and examples.
Cultural Relativism: Explain how you practiced cultural relativism as you developed conclusions about cultural norms and values within both the video and your own culture.
Application to Film Study: Suggest specific ways you can apply what you learned by completing this journal assignment to your film analysis, even if you chose other concepts for the final course project. Guidelines for
