Unit 3 - Vocab and Essential Questions copy

Unit Three: Culture & Cultural Processes
How does globalization impact culture?
Is a worldwide common language more beneficial or harmful? Why?
How can someone’s identities influence their ability to exercise power in society?
1. The terms must be hand-written on a separate sheet of paper to be kept in your binder
2. Number the terms for each unit
3. Examples should be used for most terms (or if it is more helpful, you can put an illustration of the term
instead of an example)
4. Highlight each key term
5. Your key terms list should follow this organization:
1. Key Term
Book or Academic
Definition put into your
own words
An example or illustration
of the key term
A pep talk:
Hi. I know there are many key terms required for this unit. Many more than our previous two units in class so
far. However, I know that you all can handle the challenge! You are smart. You are capable of extraordinary
things – like completing your key terms chart! I believe in you! You can do it! Also, think of how many points
you will lose if you don’t do it. Yikes!
Helpful Information:
To be kind and helpful, I have decided to include a powerpoint online labeled “Unit 3 Key Terms.” This
powerpoint includes an academic definition and example for each key term. Please utilize this powerpoint so
there is no confusion regarding where to access the information. You may also consult your textbook. However,
please do not just google the definition! To access the powerpoint, go to Ms. Roti’s link on the Washington
school website. You can also use the link below:
