Week 2 Field Application: Your Personality and Culture
Exploring your own culture can be eye-opening when you include the perspectives of yourself as well as others. To complete this exercise, you may talk to your parents, siblings, old family friends, etc.
Ask your family or old family friends what they remember about your personality from the time when you were very young. This exercise would be more enlightening if you asked more than one person. Include the following:
- What traits of your personality have changed over time? Explain why you think they changed.
- What traits of your personality remained the same over time? Explain why you think they remained the same.
- What traits of your personality seem to "run in the family"?
- How was art expressed in your home to reflect your culture? What did your family value most about art and what was its significance?
- Do you agree or disagree with the observations of the people you are interacting with? Explain why.
Note: Conduct your research from the perspective of a field researcher.
In your report, include the following information:
- Summary: A summary of the article
- Relevance: A section relating the article to the text or lecture material
- Reflection: A reflection on the relation between the article and your personal experience
- Field Application: A summary of your observations and findings from the field application
- Visual Examples: Pictures and visual references to support the culture being expressed
Each section of the report must be clearly marked with a heading that names the section. Below are additional details about what to include in each section.
In this section, include:
- A brief narrative on the main idea of the article read, including a succinct statement of any relevant theories or hypotheses covered.
- A description of the methods and samples used in the study such as: Who did the researchers study? In what ways did they study them? What tests did the researchers use in their study?
- A synopsis of the relevant hypotheses, theories, and cultural issues included in the reading.
- A summary of the reported findings/conclusions and their implications. In your own words, offer an evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of the study that you believe the author claims.
Relevance to class
- Describe the ways in which the article adds new information, substantiates (or conflicts) with information given in the text and lectures, and/or presents a new, but related topic.
- Describe specifically how and why the article relates to the class. Simply saying this is about culture (or stereotypes or whatever) is not sufficient.
- Explain whether the article presents new but related topics. What are these topics?
Write a detailed narrative of your observations and thoughts during this week’s field experience that addresses, at the minimum, the questions posed. Provide descriptions of the general atmosphere and people with regard to an expression of culture.
Provide visual references (pictures) for your observations that accurately reflect the culture being expressed. The pictures should be integrated into your report where applicable.
