My Expectations &
Clarification for this Assignment

assignment is worth 100 points
.  There are 5 sections/questions for this

IMPORTANT:  You must answer all 5 questions for full credit.   Below
I will explain how to complete the questions and provide examples.

to use APA formatting and cite any sources you use
. Like an assessment if you use the course text book or any
outside source in your project, please create an in-text citation and reference
list.  However this project is unique
in that it is asking for tables and a survey so I am not going to be as strict
about the APA formatting.  Each question
gives specific information about this.
Citing any source used is required but if you put the citation in the
table or at the end of the table that is OK.

Note:  You can create one
reference list at the end of the project and not after each question. 

Questions for Unit 5

Question 1:

Ask five people how they would
define racism, religion, and family, and then summarize the definitions.  Identify the similarities and differences in
the definitions. Provide your own definitions of each and how they relate to
each other.

You can use any means you want to interview people. Social media (Facebook,
Twitter, etc.), email, or personal interviews are all acceptable.

for Question 1:

(1) Ask 5 people and summarize each
of their definitions of ALL three terms (racism, religion, and family) You may
also discuss how you conducted your survey.

(2) You should write a few
sentences/paragraph about the differences and similarities found among those
you surveyed. 

(3) You should provide your own definition
for the three terms and discuss how they compare to those you surveyed.  (Did you have the same views? Different
views?  Why might that be?)

Question 2: 
Generate a table with a list of the
different patterns of interaction between minority and majority groups. The
table should have three columns.   (A) One column for the models.  (B) One column providing three facts about each
model. (C) One column providing two
different examples for each model. 

Important Note:  See page 310-311
of the text for the list of the 4 different patterns of interaction.  You will use the information from these pages
to fill in the table.  You can also use
other resources just make sure you cite them correctly. 

for Question 2:

(1) Have a column that contains (names) all 4 models of the patterns of Majority
and Minority interaction

(2) Have a column that contains three facts about each model

(3) Have a column providing two different examples for each model

Below are
some very basic examples.  You can create
your table or columns however you wish as long as all the information is there.  I inserted a basic 5 by 3 column table.


Model 1 (Name)

Model 2

Model 3

Model 4

(B) Facts

Fact 1, Fact 2, Fact 3

(C) Examples

Example 1

Example 2

Here is another
sample for question 2:  I have filled in
some of it to show you some examples of what can be done.

Patterns of Interaction between Majority and
Minority Groups






1.) Laws of the United
States are Pluralist in nature.

2.) Fact 2 about pluralism.

3.) Fact 3 about pluralism


“Assimilation involves
changes in ethnicity but not race”. (Macionis, 2011 pg 311).

2)Fact 2 about

3.) Fact 3 about

1.) Fact 1 about

2.) Fact 2 about

3.) Fact 3 about

1.) Fact 1 about genocide.

2) Fact 2 about genocide.

3.)  Fact 3 about genocide.


1) In US, you can find a
Mosque, a Korean Church and a Baptist church

2) Example 2 of pluralism

1.) My grandparents assimilated into the US culture by learning
English and taking the oath of citizenship.

2.) Example 2 of

1.) An example of segregation

2) Example 2 of segregation

1.) Example of a genocide

2)Example two of genocide

You can use the insert table capability found in word. It really is
easy!  That would probably be the easiest
way to do it but not required.  At the
very least use the tabs/spaces to make the table neat and understandable.

Note: Remember to create in-text citations if you paraphrase or
quote examples and ideas from the text book.

Question 3: 

Develop a K-W-L table for each of
the racial/ethnic groups in the United States. Page 314 – 320 of the course text lists the 7 groups
(Native American, White Anglo-Saxon, African American, Asian American, Hispanic
American, Arab American, and White Ethnic).  

Create three columns for each table with
the following categories: What I KNOW (K), what I WANT to know (W), and what I
LEARNED.  I am reducing the requirement for this

IMPORTANT:   You can answer the question as written in the
syllabus or since there are so
many groups to cover for this question,  I am going to allow you to just pick 3 ethnic
groups and create your table with 1 thing you know, 1 thing you want to know,
and 1 things you learned to earn full credit instead of 3 each for all 7 groups.

Below is an example K-W-L chart.


K (Know)

W (Want to Know)

L (Learned)


1. Hispanic population is
increasing in America

1. Do Cuban Americans and Puerto
Rican American’s have a similar culture?

1. Mexican Americans originated in US lands (Macionis,

African American


Note: Remember to create in-text citations if you paraphrase or
quote examples and ideas from the text book. 
See my example above.

Question 4:  Create a timeline listing the different stages of family
life. Make note of any events, significant milestones, or problems that may
occur. See page 373 -376 of the text for information on the different stages of
family life.  (1) Courtship, (2) Settling In: Ideal vs Real
Marriage, (3) Child Rearing, (4) The Family Later in Life.

*Note:  I
am flexible about how you create the time line
It isabout showing that you can discuss the different stages of family life and
you understand the milestones and issues that arise during each stage.  You can use tools in word/power point to make
a time line or you can make the information in a table showing each stage.  *If you have Microsoft Office 2010 or newer–
you can create a timeline using SmartArt. 
It is under the Insert tab. 

Note: Remember to create in-text citations if you paraphrase or
quote examples and ideas from the text book. 

for Question 4

(1) Create a time line.

(2) Include all 4 stages of family
life listed above in your time line or table. 
List a couple events, milestones, or
problems that may occur within that particular family stage listed on your time

(3) Use APA formatted in-text
citations as needed

Question 5: 

Argue both sides (supporting and
rejecting) the following statement in one to two paragraph short essay.  The religions in the world will never
get along because they are too different.

So you would need to discuss both:

I agree that the religions in the
world will never get along because they are too different.  (Provide your reasons why in paragraph form).

I disagree that the religions in the
world will never get along because they are too different.  (Provide your reasons why in paragraph form).

Note: Even if you personally think
for example that no matter what religions will never get along, please provide
some reasons why others might be hopeful that they could get along. 

for Question 5:

(1) Your response should be at least
150 words.  It should be a full paragraph
or two. 

You must argue both sides (supporting and rejecting) to receive full

If you use your text book or another source please create an in-text
citation and then place the cited work in your reference list at the end of
your project.  It is OK if you do not use
a source for this question.
