1. Read the assigned chapters.
2. Brainstorm possible questions in class
Students may work individually to conduct an ethnographic interview of someone who is very different from themselves. To the degree possible, the students should incorporate the perspective of the interviewee and view the world from someone else’s lens. The reflection should, minimally, address your impressions of the interviewee, relate the information obtained to class discussions and describe what you learned from this experience. The interview experience will be shared.
