Ompare and Contrast Two Different Cultures or Subcultures

For this assignment you will learn what makes each culture and subculture unique. Sociologists use the a?components of culturea? in order to identify cultures and subcultures. The components of culture are language, material objects, behaviors, and symbols. For this assignment, you will use existing resources to compare and contrast two different cultures or subcultures.

Below you will find a step-by-step guide for completing this paper:

1. Make certain you have read the chapter a?Culture,a? in Society: The Basics.

2. Choose two separate cultures or subcultures to compare and contrast. Examples could be China and the United States, etc. Once you decide which cultures/subcultures you will research, use relevant key words in your library search.

3. Compare and contrast these two cultures/subcultures, specifically analyzing the components of culture (language, material objects, behaviors, and symbols.)

4. Be sure to include an introduction with a thesis, conclusion that reviews all main points you present, and integration of your personal views on the topic.

Remember to use APA format for the essay style as well as in-text citations and when listing the references.

Be sure to include the following:

Introduction and a conclusion that reviews all main points you present.

Used the components of culture to compare/contrast two cultures/subcultures.

Integrated personal views on the main issue.

Related learning situations to the concepts and theories discussed in the textbook and/or outside resources.

Used correct grammar, spelling, and APA format throughout assignment.

A note from the professor: As the instructions indicate, compare and contrast two different groups on a cultural basis. You may post your essay in this response area. However, I will not accept ANY articles about gangs vs. cults. If I see one posted, I will consider it to be a case of plagiarism. (So please dont use gangs vs. cults)

After the work has been submitted the professor may ask a question afterwards in which I will forward to you for your response. Thanks so much.

I have 5 more weeks of assignments just like this one, if this turns out to be a job well done and you are interested, I could have you do them all. Let me know what you think. Thanks.

I will also upload the chapter from our book that goes along with this assignment. The pictures didnt transfer over, but I think the reading is understandable without them.
