Learning Intention: I can demonstrate an understanding of the diversity of my culture.
Learning all about my culture was a real treat for me because it gave me a chance to gain more knowledge about Colombia. Like I said before, I was researching about Colombia. In the
beginning we learned how to determine how reliable a website can be, by using the C.R.A.A.P. test. Next we learned how to cite our links, from the websites we used, into bibliography. That part was not that challenging because I learned how to use Bibme.org last year. After that we began researching and putting all the information into notes. When we were done we had to put all of our notes into paragraphs. And as you see you can clearly tell where we put our paragraphs next. On our final presentation.
I learned a lot about my background culture but if I had to sum it up to two it would be the tradition of Quince Anos and what the traditional clothing was. The Quince Anos is a celebration for the Quinceanera (birthday girl) celebrating her passage from girlhood to womanhood. It is an expensive party, or fiesta, including a waltz with her dad, brother or any other male relative. Now a days girls prefer to take trips instead because, like I said before, it is expensive. The traditional clothing was really cool to learn about! It was, for the women, a beautiful dress will a blouse hanging off the shoulder. In the outfit it also includes gorgeous jewelry to finish it off. For the men it was a very simple outfit containing a white shirt and pants.
