Aspects of Culture

By: Lindsey Cerva

Values

Values are when, in a situation you decide to do something that would be the appropriate thing to do. Not because you feel you should do. For example, following laws would be an appropriate thing to do.

Norms

Norms, however, are pretty much the opposite of values. They would be when you consider to do something because you know its right, or not doing something because you know it's wrong. An example here would be like pushing someone down some stairs. You wouldn't do it because you know it's wrong.

American Values

We have values not just for ourselves, but also in and throughout America. Where there are things that we as a nation have to do and follow.

Diversity

Diversity is everywhere. Its defined as "different" even though none of us are really different. Yes we have differences but we are not different
