Remember, grammar, essay structure and the various elements of good writing count toward your grade.)

This is an essay, so make sure you write in standard essay format with an introductory paragraph marked by a clear thesis statement. (See the commentary in the Introductory Module about the elements of writing. Remember, grammar, essay structure and the various elements of good writing count toward your grade.) Also, to be clear, this essay is not specifically about race, in other words, physical differences between people. It is about culture, which includes people’s beliefs, behavior, and family life (among other things). Although race may figure in your discussion, it is not the subject about which you are writing. You are writing about your encounters with cultural diversity. These can be your encounters with people from entirely different cultures (for example, someone who grew up in Patagonia in far southern South America, whose religion, cuisine, and political beliefs may be entirely different from your own) or it can be about your encounters with people from different subcultures (for example, you might be a liberal Democrat who for the first time had a real discussion with a conservative Republican).
