Icons of America
Background: The United States is said to be one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world. Nearly every region of the world has influenced American culture. U.S. culture has also been shaped by the cultures of Native Americans.
The United States is sometimes described as a melting pot in which different cultures have contributed their own distinct “flavors” to American culture. Just as cultures from around the world have influenced American culture, today American culture influences the world. The term Western culture often refers broadly to the cultures of the United States and Europe.
Assignment: Please create 1-2 pages (jpg only) to be included in our final lecture of the United States. Your page(s) should not be an overview; it should represent one specific area that represents an icon of American culture.
This could be a person, place, or event. Go beyond the Statue of Liberty I got that one covered!
There should be just enough text to identify the image not tell a whole story.
