CULTURE AND VALUES ASSESSMENT ASSIGNMENT: INSTRUCTIONS
This assignment has four parts:
• Part 1: Research a cultural group different from your own, and adapt or develop a cultural and values assessment tool.
• Part 2: Use the tool to interview an individual from the cultural group that you researched.
• Part 3: Evaluate your tool and your interview skill and write objectives for improvement.
• Part 4: Engage in a cultural encounter related to the cultural group you studied.
Start by identifying a cultural group that you want to know more about. A cultural group can be defined in many ways, i.e., by nationality,
ethnicity, profession, religion, sexuality, certain conditions such as deafness (the deaf community), etc. However, it will be easiest for this
assignment to choose a given nationality, ethnicity, or a group with recognized cultural aspects such as specific rules, language, beliefs, wrongs
and rights, etc. about which you can research in the literature. (You should also take into consideration that you will need to find someone of this
group to interview in person.)
Your next step will be to research information in the literature regarding that cultural group. You will need to explore a minimum of: one web site,
one chapter on the culture in a textbook addressing diverse cultures (such as those listed as supplemental texts in your syllabus), and one article
related to the culture from a reputable journal (such as Journal of Transcultural Nursing, Western Journal of Nursing Research, or Anthropology of
Next, look at the example assessment tools in the next file. You can adapt your own tool by using one of these frameworks, or a mixture of several,
plus adapt or add some questions specific to the cultural group from your reading about that group.
