This assignment has students keep a short, three day journal about interactions at their school (or work, home, random hometown interactions, etc.) while exploring the idea of "culture." Each day provide the students with a unique prompt in case they cannot think of anything to write about.
This assignment is meant to be pair with "The Real People of ..." Short Story Project. It would be a useful extension to couple with a short story collection dealing with ideas of culture.
Best for use with grades 7-12.
