deliver an informative speech about the history, traditions, or
customs that are significant to your own culture, or a culture that fascinates
you. When devising your speech, you may consider how a culture’s traditions
illustrate values, beliefs, or norms. The speech is not limited to a reflection
of an ethnic background. You may feel more aligned with a co-culture that
reflects more of your own personal beliefs. A co-culture is a social group
within a national culture that contains its own distinctive patterns of beliefs,
values, and norms. For example: skaters, surfers, hip hop, etc. The subject
of culture also includes our beliefs, philosophies, and expression of self and
ideas. For example, martial arts, dance, etc.
