6.6 Enrichment

Discussion Questions

  1. How would you adjust your preparation to speak in a public setting with a more diverse audience compared to your preparation to speak to your public speaking class?
  2. List some of your personal, social, and cultural identities. Are there any that relate? If so, how? For your cultural identities, which ones are dominant and which ones are nondominant?
  3. Describe a situation in which someone ascribed an identity to you that did not match with your avowed identities. Why do you think the person ascribed the identity to you? Were there any stereotypes involved?


  1. Share three interesting facts or ideas about your culture (Section 6:3 Exploring Specific Cultural Identities) that would help classmates better understand the culture.
  2. Take one to three photographs that illustrate or represent your own culture (attitudes, beliefs, values, behaviors, etc.).
