Question description

Defining a concept means that we identify the specific qualities or requirements that specify when the concept can be applied. To define a concept effectively, we must know what conditions must be met in order to qualify as an example. For this assignment, we will explore the concept of an American cultural identity.

Review the Thinking Passage, "Defining the Concept of Cultural Identity" on pages 338-342 of your textbook.

    • Respond to questions #1, #5 and #6 "Questions for Analysis," on page 313, forming and applying concepts to the idea of being an American.
    • Re-type and then respond to these questions. Your response should consist of 1-2 pages.

Be sure to submit your final draft to the Dropbox by Sunday, 11:59PM (Mountain).

1. Before reading this article, what was your answer to the question “Who’s American?” How did you develop this concept of being an American? If you or your parents were born in another country, how would you define the national identity of that country? (For example, what does it mean to be Dominican or Chinese?)

2. How did the events of September 11, 2001, affect the debate over what it means to be American?

3. How would you relate the concept of multiculturalism to that of being an American? Do you think these concepts are in potential conflict with each other? Why or why not?

4. How have wars traditionally influenced the general perception of being an American?

5. How can the concept of a national identity both unite and divide people?

6. After reflecting on these issues via this article, these questions, and class discussions, has your concept of what it means to be an American changed? If so, in what ways?
