Culture assignment: ***SEE ATTACHED ARTICLES*** Write a 2-3 paragraph, double space description of a cultural encounter you have had or observed during your career. Describe the encounter and any contextual information needed to set the scene and create understanding of the situation. Provide a brief explanation of what happened, describe both perspectives (and/or the third perspective if that is relevant), then using what you learned from the readings, analyze the situation. 1. How did the situation work out? Was there benefit? To whom? Explain 2. Did you observe/participate in anything that reflected some aspect of racism? Discuss the social construct (social or socioeconomic factors), identify levels of racism from the article that were demonstrated and/or describe the interaction using the garden metaphor (did your plants thrive or did they struggle, were your patient’s needs met?) 4. Consider the information you learned in the white privilege article, how might that apply to your described scenario? You don’t have to cite your sources for this paper, but it would be helpful to know when you are responding to any of the articles.
