Free Write from my Group Facilitation

Today’s class facilitation has definitely expanded my knowledge in cultures and languages, literacies, and discourses. Since my group presented today, all of the knowledge I gained through research and teaching the class has definitely given me a better understanding of how culture and language is all interconnected and the effect it has on society. I didn’t realize how many different aspects make up our culture and the way we speak. One of the challenges my group faced was deciding on how to tie everything together since culture is such a broad topic. It covers a group of peoples language, beliefs, dress, attitude, values, norms, behaviors, and even material objects that are important enough to pass on to future generations of a society. However, I feel like this topic has benefited me in many way. For starters, I have a much better understanding of language and culture simply because I had to teach the class about what it is which has helped me retain the information much better. This topic is also related to what I am currently learning about in my Sociology class which makes it super interesting that I can connect it in two of my classes.

  1. I also thought that the facilitation expanded my views. A lot of times, we don’t realize something until we study it, which is why learning about different cultures is so important. I think that people would be more accepting of people with different cultural backgrounds if they took the time to learn about those backgrounds.

  2. Your presentation was very engaging and interesting. I think the best way to know if you did good on teaching a lesson is to see if connections can be made to other topics/classes. Every subject is connected to another somehow and I was able to make connections to other classes during your lesson. For example, when we talked about how rap and our generation has become hyper sexualized I could make connections to my Sex History class. If I hadn’t taken that class I would agree that we are hyper sexualized but when we study the colonial or Victorian time we can see that we would seem tame to those early settlers. Some times it takes looking at a cultures past and past cultures to make better judgements in the future.
