YTMN-5103 Comtemporary Culture
Learned behavior is transmitted through culture. Culture is an influential teacher and culture can set the norms for acceptable behavior and paint a picture of what one should look like. It is extremely important to know and be involved in the world of adolescents if one wishes to be an influence. This course introduces students to a study of present-day American culture in which churched and non-churched adolescents exist. The course gives attention to the context of music, media, dress, values, norms, philosophy, peers, family, and school as they engage adolescents in our culture.
