Concept #2 - Culture

Today we discussed the idea that

Cultures of a society are the product of religion, beliefs, customs, traditions, and governments of that society.

We compared and contrasted Mexican and Greek cultures from movie clips of Fools Rush In and My Big Fat Greek Wedding.

Earlier this week we discussed the concept of Conflict and Change.  We concluded that some conflicts occur due to differences of opinion or points of view.  Culture deals five areas of life that can be controversial (or things people can have different opinions about).

So, when there are different cultures within a society, it could create situations of conflict, and therefore constant change.

Below is the presentation we used to learn the concept.

Tomorrow - Governance.
