8 T UESDAY 11/4 UII Do Now Why is it important to understand a multicultural society? 8

9 M ELTING POT The melting pot is a metaphor for a heterogeneous society becoming more homogeneousheterogeneous homogeneous The different elements "melting together" into a harmonious whole with a common culture. It is particularly used to describe the assimilation of immigrants to the United States; the melting- together metaphor was in use by the 1780s.assimilationUnited States 9

10 M ELTING POT CHALLENGED After 1970 the desirability of assimilation and the melting pot model was challenged by proponents of multiculturalismmulticulturalism They assert that cultural differences within society are valuable and should be preserved, proposing the alternative metaphor of the mosaic or salad bowl – different cultures mix, but remain distinct. mosaic salad bowl 10

11 C ULTURES IN THE US The United States of America thrives on diversity. A synthesis of the world’s plentiful and varied races, religions, and cultures America is a home to all, such that no one group can call itself more “American” than another. The fusion of cultures here is so unique and so exceptional that citizens can be just as proud of their original cultural heritage as they are to be an American. 11

12 C ULTURAL STRUGGLES Each culture provides its own special and irreplaceable contribution to our understanding of America today. Diversity in America not only presents a host of intimate snapshots of culture and heritage, but we document the struggles of nationalities to integrate into the “melting pot or mosaic” society of America. 12

13 R ICH MIXTURES Without its rich mixture of religions, races, and cultures, America would not be the nation that it is today. Founded upon the basis of equality and freedom for all. America acts as a stage where intensely different cultures not only aspire to coexist peacefully, but also thrive symbiotically to create a nation Learning about each other and our similarities and differences helps us to understand each other’s struggles 13

42 L EARNING FROM THE AUTHOR I will now share with you what each student photographer wrote as a response to the project questions Think about the following questions as we learn about each student’s perspective on their photos How did the written response compare with your response to the photograph? How did the way you think about school change as a result of reading the student’s written response? What new answers have you generated to the project questions?

44 F OR M Y M OTHER TO K NOW The reason why I go to school is to make it. It’s to know one day I will reach my hand out to receive my diploma and know that my mother will be so proud of me. For my mother to know that I will succeed in life and for me to know that I’m going places is important. This picture is not clear because I’m not quite there yet. Ebony

46 N O O NE C ARES This picture shows a young father holding his son. He looks young. This young man experienced being alone himself and has had a difficult life. His mother was on drugs and his grandmother had to raise him. He’s spending time with him and he loves him. He is taking care of his son. Having a child can get in the way of your success in school if you are too young. But it can also help you succeed: you will go further because you want your child to have a better life than you did. This little boy probably won’t end up in the same situation as his dad. Jolisha

48 I T ’ S ABOUT PASSION Team sports, in many ways, help you succeed and to accomplish your goals. If I didn’t have baseball, there would be something missing. Every day before I go to school, even out of season, I am thinking about baseball. I am thinking about plays, about my coach, and about how to help another player when they are having a bad day. Baseball is such a big part of my life and if I didn’t have it, every day at school would be gray. Some of my teammates might even drop out of school without it. Baseball is about passion; it gives you drive and the desire to succeed. You rely on one another for support. If you don’t have those things in school, then you will not succeed.

50 C LOGGED This picture makes this student think of all the struggles that get in the way of them succeeding. For example, bi-polar disorder runs in this student’s family. This was a big concern for them, but they were tested and know they don’t have it, but it’s always in the back of their mind. They had a schoolteacher for sixth grade who blamed them when she lost her baby. How can you tell a sixth grade student that it’s their fault for having a miscarriage? The drain is clogged and that could be representative of all the stuff that holds them down but the basketball is there to remind me that I still need to get up and do what I need to do in order to succeed.

51 P HOTO -W ALK Taking your own pictures to answer the questions Remember the pictures you take must answer these questions for YOU in school RULES: You cannot take a picture of any student in the school You cannot have any faces in your pictures You must be back to class in 15 minutes Mr. Palumbo is aware of your timing Be respectful in the halls, no loud noise or you will have to come back to class Take pictures with your phone, if you don’t have a phone, borrow a camera from the library 51

52 A FTER P ICTURES Review all your pictures Choose the picture that answers all the questions for you JUSTIFY in Word how this picture answers all the questions Be Specific What is the purpose of school? What supports your success in school? What things get in the way of your school success? 52
