Multicultural Matrix and Analysis Worksheet
Part 1: Matrix
Using Ch. 10 of Sociology in Modules and your own Internet research, select and identify six different ethnic groups. Complete the matrix for the groups you identified.
|Ethnic Group||Explain a historical fact about this group that has implications in the present.||What are some cultural practices and/or customs shared by this group?||How is this group represented in the media?||What is a current challenge faced by this group in the workplace?|
Part 2: Analysis
Write a 350- to 700-word analysis of the advantages of a multicultural society and labor force. Include specific examples related to at least three of the ethnic groups you identified in Part 1. Use the following questions to guide your writing:
- How has U.S. society influenced these ethnic groups’ mindset and identity?
- How has each group been stereotyped? How accurate are these stereotypes?
- How do the social concepts of prejudice, discrimination, and privilege affect multicultural groups?
- How do the behavior and thinking patterns in U.S. society (biases, stereotypes, discriminatory practices) affect multicultural groups, especially regarding class systems and employment?
