1) Your friend Fakey McFakerson is really into maps, and they suddenly send you message you out of the blue: I want you to get me this map for my birthday. Its the first map to ever show the worlds surface as it is, without distortions! The maps projection, called the A Sucker Is Born Every Minute Projection, claims to use new mathematical and scientific techniques that the mainstream geography has been hiding from you to show you how the world truly appears to be.
Do you believe the claims of the mapmakers of the A Sucker Is Born Every Minute projection that it shows the earths surface as it truly is? Why or why not?
2) Culture is at the heart of what we talk about in Cultural Geography and, as we discussed earlier, culture is a tough thing to define! Pretend you were going to explain what culture was to a fifth grader (age 10). Create a short speech youd give to a fifth grader to explain what culture is.
3) In thinking about loaner words, Id like you to think about the idea of code-switching, the term for using different patterns of speech with different people. When you speak to your friends, you might not use the same words or speech patterns as you would when having a job interview. Id like you to think of ten terms that are either vernacular (slang terms) or formal terms (for all intents and purposes) and define them for someone arriving from an international country that may have not heard them before. I will be collecting these for an ESL class of international students if yours is selected, you may be eligible for bonus points J
4) Pick a country thats *not* the United States, and develop a speech meant to be given to fifth graders about the country. Please include information about the countrys people, their culture, what they do for work, what they like to do, and what they like to eat, and any other information you think a fifth grader would be interested in.
5) What do you think non-Americans should know about America, given your experiences in America? What do you think often gets left out of global discourse about America?
