Question Description

Midterm: Conceptualization of Self & Cultural Identity (Individual Assignment)

Identity, Family, and Schooling Experience Paper: This assignment will allow you to explore and address the development of your own ethnic identity, namely race and ethnicity; however, you can also cover topics, such as, class, gender, sexuality, religion and others that you ascribe to. You will be asked to examine how each one aspect of these intersecting identities have formed and how they have affected your experiences. You are expected to do the following:

1) Define each socially constructed identity as supported in the literature.

2) Provide a brief history of your identities within American society (e.g.,

racism, privilege, immigration, etc.).

3) Describe concrete experiences of you growing up that shaped each identity.

4) Examine the messages that you received about your identities from groups

such as your family, school, peer group, and/or religious experiences that

have influenced the perception of yourself, others, and social contexts (e.g.,

schools, government agencies, work force).

5) Incorporate material (e.g., assignments, activities, readings, etc.) that you

learned in class and describe how it relates, explains, or makes you reflect on

your experiences.

A standardized grading rubric for this assignment will be provided as a tool to help gain a clear understanding of this assignment. This paper should be an APA style formatted 5-6 page paper (double spaced) in length, 1 inch font all around with page numbers included. Be sure to cite at least 4-5 peer reviewed scholarly articles and your text book.

Visit the campus writing center or review the APA style format guide book for further writing assistance: https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/research_and_citation/apa_style/apa_formatting_and_style_guide/general_format.html

Late Assignments: In order to be fair to students who submit work on time, late papers will result in a penalty. The request for submission of late work due to an unforeseen circumstance will require verification by a legitimate source in relation to the absence (e.g. physician, funeral director, police). Employment conflicts, personal travel, or other personal business are not excusable explanations for the submission of late assignments.

If you are allowed (due to an unforeseen circumstance) to turn in your work past the due date, expect your grade on the assignment to drop by 5% for each day (or fraction of a day) that an assignment is late (including weekends). Assignments should be turned in on Moodle on the designated due date unless told otherwise. Being absent is not an acceptable excuse for incomplete or late work. Papers that are faxed, emailed, or dropped off in the department main office will NOT be accepted (unless you make prior arrangements with me). I will not contact you if I do not receive your work. Work that is not turned in will result with a zero.
