Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses.
This week, you will continue discussing your two cultures, focusing on whether the culture is organized into hierarchies, and if so, on what basis. The list of cultures, including resources, can be accessed through the Library Resource Guide. You should describe gender roles, ethnic hierarchies, if present, and whether there are other socio-economic hierarchies present in the cultures. Consider the “why” of these hierarchies: hat is the background for the existing hierarchies and how do they affect people?
Part of your Final Project will be submitted using YouSeeU. To familiarize yourself with this software, you will submit your initial post as a link to a YouSeeU recording. To learn how to use YouSeeU, click on the YouSeeU User Guide. Provide one to two slides and two to four minutes of narration. This is an opportunity to experiment with the software, with slides and oral presentation, so that you become confident before submitting your Final Project.

Guided Response: Respond to at least two peers. Ask one question about their chosen culture that you would like to know more about. Try to politely and constructively address it if a peer has not fully embraced a concept or has somewhat misunderstood it. For your peer responses, you will respond within the discussion forum. You will not use YouSeeU for peer responses.
