Wayland Union High School Holds Sociology Culture Fair PDF Print E-mail

High School students from Andrea Brown’s Sociology classes at Wayland Union High School held a culture fair recently as their capstone project. Students researched and applied two trimesters of sociological knowledge to a culture of their choosing.  They highlighted the cultures language, entertainment, education, religion & value system, family structure, along with a variety of other interesting aspects of the material and non-material elements of their chosen culture.  Students spent time exploring the cultural universal of food- what people eat, how it is eaten and the symbolic meaning behind food and then brought in food to accompany their capstone presentations.  Over 30 students participated and feasted on a lunch from around the world.   

 Seniors, Jessica and Christina studied countries from the Pacific Islands.
