The purpose of this assignment is to compare and contrast your own culture with that of another through the use of religion or spirituality. We’ll be looking at the incorporation of diverse perspectives to see how you can appreciate an experience outside your own culture to help you better understand multicultural settings. You’ll be demonstrating competency in incorporating diverse perspectives as part of the Intercultural Fluency Badge. NOTE: You will need to earn at least 40 points on this assignment to be eligible for the badge.
Watch a religious or spirituality-related video, such as a documentary or a faith-based ritual, from a culture you know little or nothing about.
You will then write about your experience in a discussion post. Your post will have at least three paragraphs of at least 100 words each. Be sure you include the following:
A narrative, first-person account of your experience. Tell us what you chose and why. Summarize what happened. Where did you go? What did you do? What did you see, hear, smell, taste, touch? How did you feel as you went through the experience? How did you feel when you thought about it later?
Tell us about your home culture. How did what you experience compare and contrast with what you’re accustomed to? Did the experience remind you of any other cultures you’ve experienced?
What is the value in having an experience like this? How did it challenge your thinking? Why is experiencing other faith or spiritual traditions important to enlarging our cultural conversations? What did you learn about appreciating other people and stepping out of your comfort zone as a result of this assignment? How does having an understanding of multiple traditions maximize our effectiveness in multicultural settings?
My culture is Mexican, so you can write about any culture and spiritual. Thank You!!
