What is Cultural Identity?
Group Work
I will separate you into groups of 4-5 people.
There is a document in the folder I am sharing with you, named Group What is Cultural Identity.
As a group you will look at the document and answer each question.
However, you will assign one person in the group to type the answers. Only that person will turn in the assignment for the group through Google Drive in the folder they are sharing with me.
Include the names of everyone in your group.
Everyone must cooperate and help each other out. If not, you will all have to work on the document separately.
I will go to each group to answer any questions.
Try your best. This won't be easy, but you have me and each other as help.
