Write about a cultural experience you had from a culture of your choice. This report should be written as if you actually attended the event.
Examples of experiences are:
art museum or sculpture garden
significant or notable architectural site (if there is explanatory material there to help you understand it)
poetry reading or spoken word performance
religious service, ceremony or ritual for a religion very different from yours, if you practice (for instance, if you are Christian, you may not go to another Christian denomination`s service)
other displays or performances may be acceptable. Check with your instructor for approval beforehand.
Also here are some specifics of what to include in the report:Name and location of the museum, site, or performance event. If there is on-line information about the site or performance, include a link.
Type of museum, site or event. For example, is it a portrait museum, a poetry slam, an outdoor Shakespeare festival performance? If you attended a performance, name the performer or the piece. Be specific about what you attended, when, and where.
Briefly describe the general setting.
Describe at least one aspect of the experience that you found especially interesting. For example, you might write about a particular work of art, cultural artifact, song, dance section, scene in a play, costumes or lighting, a particular actor or vocalist, etc. Explain what impressed you, and why. Your reaction can be positive or negative, as long as you offer an explanation.
Identify and use at least two things you`ve learned in class in your essay. For example, if you visit a museum discuss an artist you`ve learned about in the course, or tie your experience to a class discussion. You may also include observations you gained from assigned readings. It citing class readings be sure to use appropriate citation style, such as APA or MLA.
Reflect on the relevance--if any--of your experience to your everyday life. How did the experience engage your feelings or emotions, if at all? What does this tell you about human culture, or about yourself?
