Respond to the discussion questions from Chapter 1 of Perspectives:
1)This chapter emphasizes how broad the discipline of anthropology is and how many different kinds of research questions anthropologists in the four subdisciplines pursue. What do you think are the strengths or unique opportunities of being such a broad discipline? What are some challenges or difficulties that could develop in a discipline that studies so many different things?
2) Cultural anthropologists focus on the way beliefs, practices, and symbols bind groups of people together and shape their worldview and lifeways. Thinking about your own culture, what is an example of a belief, practice, or symbol that would be interesting to study anthropologically? What do you think could be learned by studying the example you have selected?
3) Discuss the definition of culture proposed in this chapter. How is it similar or different from other ideas about culture that you have encountered in other classes or in everyday life?
4In this chapter, Anthony Kwame Harrison, Bob Myers, and Lynn Kwiatkowski describe how they first became interested in anthropology and how they have used their training in anthropology to conduct research in different parts of the world. Which of the research projects they described seemed the most interesting to you? How do you think the participant-observation fieldwork they described leads to information that would otherwise be difficult or impossible to learn?

Paste the following four questions into your text box, answer each thoroughly, and then submit your reflections electronically through Canvas by the due date and time.
What did you learn from this film about the history of Christian monasticism that seems important for understanding the role of monks and nuns within the body of Christ?
What common stereotypes or assumptions about monastic life were challenged by watching this film?
If the monks in this film, just by being who they are, hold up a mirror for us to look at our own lives (much like the bush people of the Kalahari Desert do), what do you see that’s worth paying attention to regarding the shape of your own life?
Note here anything else from your watching and reflecting upon this film you think is important, including any questions you might have about Christian monasticism.

For our final assignment, you will choose four articles from the articles you have been asked to read in class and/or from the article list provided for the Week 6 assignment to create an Annotated Bibliography. You will complete three items for each of your four sources:
1. Reference: Complete an APA reference for each article
2. Annotation: Complete an annotation for each article.
The annotation is not a summary or paraphrase. In this paragraph, you will interpret and evaluate the contents of the article itself. It is a narrative paragraph of about 100 words providing information and assessment about the article.
3. Reflection: Write a reflection for each article. The reflection should connect your intercultural communication experience(s) with information from the article as it applies to you personally (This section only can be written in first person).
In this paragraph of about 100 words, relate the information that you have evaluated in the article to your own cultural identity and intercultural communication. This is a reflective piece where you are able to connect the information in theory to an understanding of your own identity.
