1. Language

1.1. Tone of your voice that is either quiet or loud

1.2. Gestures or signs

1.3. Communication is used through language whether how it sounds or using sign gestures. A communication largely varies depending on which people you communicate with or how good or bad a situation can be that can set the tone of your language.

1.4. The most interesting thing I found about language is code switching. You switch the way you talk when you communicate with different people, otherwise the individual will have the wrong idea on the person that is speaking. From Cultural Anthropology, when you do not write a proper email to someone like a professor, "the failure to code switch in a communication with a professor runs a the risk of sending the wrong signal"(Guest 130).

1.5. The way how males and females talk

2. Culture

2.1. The purpose of culture show multiple groups of people have shared ideas of what they practice like how they eat, what really symbolizes them, or how things run in their own group whether its in a school or a job.

2.2. What I find interesting is what do people are required to do their lives because it is considered the norm in their culture. From the book called Cultural Anthropology, it states that "norms may include what to wear on certain occasions such as weddings, funerals, work, and; what you can say in polite company; how younger people should treat older people; and who you can date or, as the opening anecdote demonstrated, what you can eat when"(Guest 37).

2.3. Job Policy to follow

2.4. Sports to watch

2.5. School Rules to abide

2.6. Eat with utensils or hands?

3. Fieldwork and Ethnography

3.1. life in the community or village

3.2. Getting involved in the community or village

3.3. There are multiple cultural heritage around the world and it can be interesting to learn the people in their heritage. From the textbook Cultural Anthropology, the possibilities to learn a groups cultural heritage is "to understand people's everyday lives, to see what they do and to understand why. By living with others over an extended period, we seek to understand their experience through their eyes"(Guest 76).

3.4. Interview with an individual or get to know the group

3.5. When you want to learn about a community or a village, you would want to show up to an actual community or village in order to have an opportunity to learn about their cultural heritage. You can interview a person who is in the village or get involved into their activities and understand why they do what they normally do

4. Global Age

4.1. DIfferent people

4.2. Different Environemt

4.3. Different Culture

4.4. When you look at how Humanity works in life, you witness the variety of different human perspective from their own lives in different areas. Who are they, where they come from, and how they communicate?

4.5. The Purpose of Anthropology helps us learn much about different types of humans. From the textbook Cultural Anthropology, it states about the challenge of Anthropology by trying to "understand the rich diversity of human life and to see how our particular life experiences connect to those of others"(Guest 6).
