Intercultural Experience Paper OR Intercultural Interview Paper: For this assignment you have a choice (Due on Tuesday, December 8 by 11:59 p.m.; 50 points – submit online to Blackboard).
**All papers must be written in Times New Roman font, size 12, double spaced. You do not need a cover page for this assignment. Please clearly identify your name and the course at the top of the paper.
A. Your first option is to attend an event, gathering, celebration, etc., which is attended mostly by members of a cultural group that is different than your own. The event should allow you to observe people interacting as well as providing a chance for you to participate in the event yourself. You are free to go in pairs or in groups of three, but you must turn in individual papers. It might also be a good idea to invite class members to cultural events attended or held by your own cultural group. The idea is to stretch your boundaries and to start to notice and reflect on things you may have not noticed before. Concerts and movies are NOT acceptable. The event should be cleared by the instructor before attending to determine its appropriateness for intercultural communication.
After the experience, write a 5-page paper (excluding reference materials) describing:
1) your experience, such as how you felt when participating in that setting,
2) what you observed and what surprised you,
3) how your experience expresses or serves as an example of concepts or theories that you have learned in this class. The most important part of the paper is your analysis of how this experience relates to concepts that we have covered in class.
This assignment will be graded for creativity, the appropriate demonstration of course concepts in as realistic a situation as possible, and the use of at least three outside, relevant scholarly sources.
B. Your second option is to interview someone who was not born in the USA such as an international student or an immigrant. If you are an international student taking the course, then you must interview someone who is not native to your country of origin. The interview should be at least 30 minutes; please take notes and tape record the interview if possible (make sure to get permission if you record the interview). Prepare specific questions either about your interviewee’s home culture or about his/her experience in the USA. It would be helpful if you focused on a few concepts or theories that you have learned about in this class. While your interviewee might not know the specific names of the concepts or theories, you can still ask about their experience in relation to these concepts.
After the interview, write a 5-page paper describing:
1) your interviewee,
2) what you found out about his/her culture, especially the aspects that are different from the USA,
3) how you can relate what you learned from your interview to concepts or theories that we have covered in class. The most important part of the paper is your analysis of how this information relates to concepts that we have covered in class.
Attach your list of questions that you prepared for the interview to the end of the paper (This does not count toward the 5-page length requirement).
This assignment will be graded for clear structure, thoughtful analysis of the experience or the interview, clear mention of appropriate vocabulary of course concepts, clear references to the text and concepts from the course, and the mechanics of writing (spelling, grammar, and punctuation).
