Multicultural Matrix and Analysis Worksheet
Part 1: Matrix
Using Ch. 10 of Sociology in Modules and your own internet research, select and identify 6 different ethnic groups.
Complete the matrix below for the groups you identified.
|Ethnic Group||What is 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 3 of the ethnic groups you identified in Part 1.
Use the following questions to guide your writing:
- How has U.S. society influenced each ethnic group’s 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 behavioral and thinking patterns in U.S. society (e.g., biases, stereotypes, discriminatory practices) affect multicultural groups, especially regarding class systems and employment?
