The purpose of this assignment is to: Provide you with the experience of being a minority and to expose you to cultural differences between yourself and others in an unfamiliar environment. Assignment 1 is a personal growth exercise Becoming a Minority (Mai-Dalton, 1985). Your task is to go by yourself to a place that you have not been before and observe what you see, and your feelings as being different in that environment. For example, a Caucasian Christian visiting a Hindu temple, a heterosexual individual attending an LGBTQ event, a younger student going to a senior citizen function the key is to place yourself in a situation where your social identities are different from the majority of those in attendance. Do not choose a setting that places you in a situation that is physically dangerous, or in a situation in which your presence is unacceptable or seen as an intrusion. You must submit your exercise idea for approval via Canvas by Wednesday, January 28th by 5:00 p.m. **My professor gave me permission to attend a live-stream event of a Hindu Temple due to a foot injury and me not being able to walk at the current moment.
YOU MUST FIND A HINDU TEMPLE LIVE STREAM in order to complete this assignment. As a last alternative, I just asked my professor if I could use a video instead of a live event because I havent been successful at finding one Hindu Temple live stream. However, she hasnt responded as of yet I will let you know onces she does and at that time I will provide you with the link of the said video that I already found** In order to receive a grade, you must write at least a 2-page reflective essay and you must include evidence of your exercise, e.g., photos, etc. Please ask me if you are unsure as to how to provide evidence of your experience.
