  2. Defines intersectionality with correct APA citation.
  3. Discusses other intersecting forms of oppression and/or privilege that should be considered in addition to class when analyzing the issue, such as race, ethnicity, sex, gender, sexuality, and/or disability. Explains why it is an important consideration.
  1. Do you agree with the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis that language shapes our perception of ourselves and of our reality? Why or why not? For example, does language impact how we think about gender, race, and/or ethnicity? If so, how so? If not, why not?
  2. Explain the concept of culture shock by imagining that a person who lived in the United States in the 1860s time traveled to the United States of today.

If you were the time traveler, do you think you would adapt to modern American culture, or would you engage in ethnocentrism?
  3. What does “socialization” mean? Why is the family considered by most sociologists and psychologists to be the most important agent of socialization? Do you agree? What do you think are some other significant agents of socialization?
