Throughout this course, you have experienced the elements of culture and the diversity that developed from the influence of indigenous people and immigrants from far and wide. As each new culture arrives in the United States, they add something new, even if the immigrant group chooses to assimilate. This has developed into a patchwork quilt of culture. In this assignment, you are asked to predict what American culture will be like in 50 years. In a blog-style essay, you will describe future cultural diversity using one of the components listed.

· Select a cultural component:

· music – live or recorded

· visual arts – gallery or street art

· dance and theater – amateur or professional

· cuisine – home-cooked, take-outs, chef-inspired, or street foods

· sports – you can focus on one or more of the amateur or professional sports discussed in this course.

· In 4 well-developed paragraphs, describe how you think that component will change over the next 50 years, and include

· A description of the component

· Your current experience with the component – what specifically do you like, dislike, or avoid

· Cultural and other influences that might change the component in the next 10, 20, and 50 years

· Imported culture – global influence or immigrant associated

· Government intervention

· Changing demographics of the United States

· Describe the level of acceptance these changes might expect from people whose lives and traditions differ from your own

Things to remember:

· There should be a minimum of 4 well-developed paragraphs.

· Support your prediction with factual references. For example, if you think all music will be created by robots by 2070, support that with articles about the future of music.

· Proofread before submitting.

Predictions based on facts need to be referenced. Your source material must be academically credible and validated using in-text citations and references in APA format.
