CULTURA: Derrick, Zoe, Chloe, Maximus

These four posts represent everything you need in a cultural reflection post:

  1. Description of one specific cultural product
  2. Description of how that product is similar to examples from our culture
  3. Description of how that product is different from examples from our culture
  4. Connections to common practices in the culture
  5. Theories as to how those similarities and differences reflect perspectives
In addition, these four posts show exceptional insight in their comparisons and contrasts and their analysis of cultural perspectives.

The insights based on the music, TV shows, and Duolingo are also especially insightful.
