For each reading,
1. Give a BRIEF (1-2 sentences) idea of what each text is about. What is the main argument of each text? Following that, identify what you think the purpose of reading the text(s) is –that is, what is its significance in the larger context of what we are focusing on in class? Discuss what conclusions you came to and how you did so.
2. When you take note of something in the text as interesting or surprising, start to draw specific conclusions or implications. Remember that discussion is a space to explore possibilities rather than to have fully formed thoughts or well-supported arguments, as in a paper.
Try not to raise something in the text by just saying, “I thought it was interesting that…” Consider why the passage or example is significant, or what it reveals or implies about history (for example, “I think this passage was really interesting because etc etc”).
3. Some questions to consider: What are the central themes and arguments? What are your differing interpretations? What questions did the readings raise for you? What evidence does the author use to arrive at their conclusions? Is their argument convincing? How does this text change the way you think about the topic, or history? For example, what becomes central? What is missing from this study, and how does this affect the author’s analysis? Why is what you learned from this text significant to you?
4. How do these texts connect to each other (either similarly or differently); where or how do they intersect, etc?
5. Develop 2-3 questions that you would like for the class to discuss. Try to make these ‘why’ or ‘how’ questions.
*Remember: You are not summarizing any of the readings. Rather, you are “extracting” the most important ideas, themes, or questions you believe they offer.
For the Campbell text, read chapter 2 ONLY.
Do not use any external sources.
Approx 300+ words for each reading.

Respond to posting
“Americans are intrigued by celebrity life. We follow the intimate details of celebrity lives, including the most mundane events. Grazian explains that celebrity life is an opportunity for “public reflection.” Explain what he means by this. Your explanation should be rich with original examples.
In this lovely world we have those people that we all want to be and try our hardest to mock or copy what they do to be like them, dress like them and many more. They in a matter of speaking are celebrities and celebrities can range from fashion moguls, musicians, actors/actresses and even influencers. Social media is a major platform for all discoveries that can be made about these celebrities which gets us non celebrities talking about them and keeping them very relevant. That is the goal correct? To stay relevant. A celebrity that is not relevant is not making money and is at risk of being overshadowed and forgotten for the time being. In the reading it states that “We compete against our friends and acquaintances for status and prestige; internalize group-generated cultural attitudes, orientations, and tastes; and allow our comfort among our most intimate allies to inform our sense of well-being” (Grazian, 2017). Now when you think about what they are saying here nit is almost like we live in a world like the hunger games based off of status and entitlement, but we do, don’t we? Social media platforms gives celebrities and many more the platform to influence the outside people to dress how they dress, be how they be and do what they do. We are all competing against each other to get to be just like them. When Grazian uses the word public reflection, he is stating that whether they are celebrities living a different life they are still the same as non celebrities just living in the public eye airing out all their business for everyone to see instead of doing it in the care of your own privacy. ” Our constantly changing situational contexts—and the people we expect to find there—ultimately determine the specific selves we choose to publicly present to the world at any given moment in time” (Grazian, 2017).”

Watch this video and respond to these questions
We are all familiar with patriotic symbols of our culture. The U.S. flag, singing the anthem at football games, crossing the heart during the pledge of allegiance are patriotic acts that reflect both material and non-material culture. Identify at least three other ways patriotism is demonstrated in our culture, provide a description as to why these are symbols of patriotism, and describe them as either material or non-material. (Minimum 200 words.)
We discussed in a previous module the power of the media to influence our culture. Consider these patriotic symbols – could these symbols be considered as a form of influence from the government? Why? Why not? (Minimum 100 words.)
What governments around the world would you think are highly motivated to use patriotic symbols and media influence to effect the opinions of the citizens of that county? Provide at least three examples and describe why these countries are using such influences.
Examine the difference between material and non-material culture in your world. Identify 10 objects that are a part of your regular cultural experience. For each object, identify what aspects of material and non-material culture (values and beliefs) that these objects represent. (Minimum 250 words.)
What has this exercise revealed to you about your culture? (Minimum 150 words).
