Culture and Self Paper
Assignment Description
Have you ever wondered why other people behave the way they do? It may have something to
do with their personality or it may have something to do with their nationality. You need not
even travel abroad. We live in a such a diverse society. Be confident the research you do for this
presentation will help your classmates be more effective during interactions in the future.
The purpose of this assignment is for you to compare / contrast American Culture and Somail
ethnic co-culture in a three to four page paper. Support your claims with reasons and evidence–
like quotes or statistics from experts like Edward Hall and Geert Hofstede among others.
This assignment will have three main parts:
 First, compare / contrast American Culture and your own ethic co-culture using one of
Hofstede’s Five Cultural Dimensions and / or Hall’s Three Cultural Dimensions.
 Second, repeat the process using another one of Hofstede’s or Hall’s dimensions of culture.
 Finally, make at least five recommendations for interacting with someone from your ethnic
co-culture.
Let’s return to a discussion of the assignment’s first main part.
Comparing / Contrasting Cultures
In the first main point, compare / contrast American Culture and your own ethnic co-culture —
using one of Geert Hofstede’s Five Cultural Dimensions or Edward T. Hall’s Three Cultural
Factors. You may choose from:
Hall’s Three Cultural Dimensions
 Monochronic and Polychronic: time is seen as a finite quantity or infinite?
 High Context and Low Context: whether language is expected to be explicit or subtle?
Direct or indirect? Formal or informal?
 Territoriality: value ownership, boundaries, and space?
 Visit http://changingminds.org/explanations/culture/hall culture.html to help
with research.
AND /OR
Hofstede’s Five Cultural Dimensions
 Individualism and Collectivism: emphasis on the individual or group?
 Masculinity and Femininity: traditional masculine or feminine values are promoted?
 High and Low Power Distance: power widely or narrowly distributed among people.
How important are hierarchy, family social status, and wealth?
 Uncertainty Avoidance: welcome or shy away from uncertainty. How important are
laws, rules, and guidelines in the culture?
 Time Orientation (Short and Long Term): resources to be used now or preserved for the
future and future generations?
 Indulgence
 Visit http://geert-hofstede.com.html to help with your research.
Each main point must include the following:
 Define each term– if it may be misunderstood by your audience.
 State your opinion (claim) regarding where your /other culture fits.
 Provide a reason why you think this is the true? “Because __________.”
 Support your claim using evidence like quotes and statistics from experts like Hall,
Hofstede, or others.*
 Transition to the next main point when finished.
* Support with evidence: statistics, quotations from a respected authority (give source,
qualifications, and dates). Provide page number if you use a quotation. Vary the kinds of
evidence used. If you do all of the above, you have made a valid argument. Now, let’s discuss
the second main point.
Comparing / Contrasting Cultures
In your second main point, repeat the process above by comparing / contrasting another one of
Hofstede’s or Hall’s Dimensions. That completes my discussion of the assignment’s second main
point. Next, let’s move on to my discussion of the assignment’s third main point.
Recommendations for Communicating with Another’s Culture
Finally, in the third main point, make at six recommendations for a successful initial interaction
with someone from your ethic co-culture. Following are some sample questions you may wish to
answer:
 What word(s) should I use to say “hello” and “good bye?
 What nonverbal behaviors should I use? Make eye contact or not? Shake hands. Bow?
Are there any specific gestures I should avoid?
 What other words might I need to know? How do I say “please”? How do I say “thank
you”?
 Where would it be okay to meet? A coffee shop? A bar? Why?
 What topic might be safe or the best to start conversation with? Weather? Health?
Family? What topics might be off limits in our first meeting?
Visit http://www.kwintessential.co.uk/resources/global-etiquette to help with your research.
That completes my discussion of the assignment’s third main point. Now let’s move on to my
conclusion.
In review, remember this assignment had three main parts.
 First, compare / contrast American Culture and your own ethic co-culture using one of
Hofstede’s Five Cultural Dimensions and/or Hall’s Three Cultural Dimensions.
 Second, repeat the process using one other one of Hofstede’s or Hall’s dimensions of
culture.
 Finally, make six recommendations for interacting with someone from that culture.
In conclusion, recall the purpose of this assignment is for you to compare / contrast American
Culture and your own ethic co-culture in a four to five page paper.
Have you ever wondered why other people behave the way they do? It may have something to
do with their personality or it may have something to do with their nationality. You need not
even travel abroad. We live in a such a diverse society. Be confident the research you do for this
presentation will help your classmates be more effective during interactions in the future.
References Slide and Other Slides
You may use your textbook as one reference, but you must use at least three references other
than your textbook, encyclopedias, and dictionaries. Consider using:
 Interview with someone from another’s culture.
 Book or periodical (reputable newspaper or magazine) research article from library
 Internet research (website) except Wikipedia, encyclopedias, and dictionaries
A Works Cited page should be included and the end of the paper
References should be stated and cited when used during the presentation and be included on
each slide using the APA writing format. FYI. Microsoft Word 2007 and beyond formats citations
for most sources. Click on References, Manage Sources, and then New (make sure Style is set to
APA) if unsure. For help with APA Style Reference Citations visit this online resource:

This section will be further refined in week 5.

You will need to use the Word document as the week one assignment. The week 2 assignment is correlated to the week one as well as week 3.
Assignment Content
The board reviewed your email and agreed with your assessment. Now it is time to start fixing the situation so that more clients can be served by the Long Lake Community Center job placement service. After seeing a 15% decline in clients served over the previous six months, the board is looking for a turnaround. Specifically, the board wants to see a 25% increase in the number of clients served. The board has tasked you with writing the strategic communication plan to achieve this goal. The board wants you to begin publishing the first few sections of a new strategic communication plan. Remember, the material you prepare this week will support your final strategic communication plan due in Week 5. You will have an opportunity to make adjustments based upon feedback from your instructor each week.
Facilitator’s Note
You are NOT being asked to improve use of other services. Should you think,”If I increase use of the food bank, it will also increase use of Job Placement Services,” you must provide research data proving a cause-effect relationship. I have not been able to find any such data.
Directions
Please do not submit a pdf. Submit a Microsoft Word publish of a 350- to 450-word strategic communication plan with the following:
publish a new vision statement that encompasses the 25% increase for Jobs Placement Service.
Explain the difference from last year’s vision statement and how it is an improvement.
How will you operationalize this vision statement? Provide two suggestions.
How will implement the vision so that progress can be measured?
This section will be further refined in Week 5.
Who are the LLCC’s internal and external partners? How will these partners support the new vision statement?
Of the four theories presented by Shires, which will guide your strategic communication plan?
How does this theory support your future development of the objectives, strategies, tactics, and messaging?
Discuss how the theory aligns to your vision statement.
Include at least 2 credible references that show how this theory has been applied or observed in action. Sources should be fluently integrated into the discussion of the theory, above. The research should be recent enough to reflect modern communication and applicable to our culture. For example, persuasion may work differently in high-context. Be selective and wise in your choices.
