This is a project essay on Multi-modal analysis of a cultural element.
Your overall goal in this is to explain the cultural
element and its social and historical contexts, analyze,
argue, and illustrate in various ways how and why, or not,
this practice fits within a specific cultural context, as well as how people outside of the culture may
view and mis/understand it. Your research and ideas/opinion will be engaged in various ways:

 You will implement, caption, and cite at least two (2) images that accurately reflect the
culture, practice, and/or element you have
 Further, you will hyperlink six (6) other

audio; two others will be articles) within your
document that lead your audience to further

presented. You are also to assess the function of this culture element within its specific cultural
identity; further, you will analyze how and why an external or different culture understands and
accepts or interprets and rejects the practice/element.
