Cultural Anthropology Interview: I CREATED AN HYPOTHESIS THAT ALL STUDENTS CAN USE, THE THREE CATEGORIES TO ORGANIZE YOUR CATEGORIES FOR ALL STUDENTS AND APPROXIMATELY 90 POSSIBLE QUESTIONS TO CHOOSE FROM. MAKE SURE YOU READ THE ENTIRE PAGE POST AND REFER TO MY POWER POINT FOR OTHER INFO. UPDATED FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 8PM

Culture:
the total system of ideas, values, behaviours, and attitudes of a society commonly shared by most members of a society.


Culture is made up of what people do, what people make, and what people believe. PG 18 OF YOUR TEXTBOOKS

Culture includes all behaviour of people in their everyday lives, from daily rituals (for example, washing dishes) to beliefs about abstract concepts (for example, time) , and is learned and transmitted from one generation to the next. It can be the food people eat, the clothes they wear, the shelter they live in, how they move from place to place, how they defend themselves, what they learn, and the languages they speak.

In your Cultural Informant interview assignment, whether it is choice #1: Subculture or choice #2: Life Histories. 
MAKE SURE YOU INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND THE OBJECTIVE OF THE INTERVIEW. I CREATED A SIMPLE HYPOTHESIS FOR ALL OF YOU TO USE BELOW    FOR UNSTRUCTURED INTERVIEWS ASK QUESTIONS LIKE: WHAT DO YOU THINK WERE SOME IMPORTANT EXPERIENCES ABOUT LIFE OR OTHER PEOPLE WHEN YOU WERE IN YOUR PRE-TEEN YEARS? YOUR TEENS? EARLY ADULTHOOD?  LATER ADULTHOOD? DO YOU THINK THAT THESE EXPERIENCES SHAPED WHO YOU ARE TODAY? HOW DID THEY SHAPE YOU DO YOU THINK? THESE QUESTIONS CAN BE APPLIED BOTH TO THE LIFE HISTORIES OPTION OR THE SUBCULTURE OPTION. YOU CAN ADD OTHERS.

THE FOLLOWING EXAMPLES ARE HELPFUL SUGGESTIONS. IF YOU THINK OF OTHER QUESTIONS THAT'S GREAT. YOUR SEMI-STRUCTURED INTERVIEW SHOULD BE ORGANIZED USING THE THREE QUESTIONS BELOW. YOU MUST INVOLVE SOME OF THE EXAMPLES BELOW. BE SURE TO MENTION THAT YOU WILL NEED AT LEAST ONE AND A HALF HOURS OF THEIR TIME. ALSO, ENSURE THAT THEY ARE AVAILABLE FOR A FOLLOW-UP INTERVIEW AS WELL IF NEEDED. INFORM THEM THAT THEIR NAMES WILL NOT BE INCLUDED IN THE PRESENTATION. THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO WILL KNOW THEIR TRUE IDENTITY WILL BE MYSELF AND YOU. ENSURE THAT YOU GET THEIR PHONE NUMBER, IF YOU DON'T ALREADY HAVE IT.

USE THIS AS YOUR CULTURAL INFORMANT HYPOTHESIS: THROUGH THE INTERVIEW PROCESS OF MY CULTURAL INFORMANT____________________  MANY UNIQUE AND INTERESTING THINGS ABOUT THE CULTURE PRACTICES AND COMMONLY SHARED BELIEFS AND VALUES OF THE _______________CULTURE.WILL BE DISCOVERED.
IF YOU CAN CREATE AN HYPOTHESIS OF YOUR OWN THAT MEETS THE OBJECTIVE OF DISCOVERING THE CONTENT BELOW GO FOR IT. NO ONE WILL LOSE MARKS IF THEY DON'T CREATE THEIR OWN
