In all of my classes we learn about the basis of how social class, culture, traditions, values and beliefs have created a large effect on how are lives are today. Learning about these topics improve my knowledge on how these factors work in our daily lives. It is very important to listen to others around you to improve how to think when learnng about yourself. Discussing these topics in class have made me become more open and understanding to people’s views as well. Not only do I learn more about myself as an individual but get a better understanding on why our culture is the way it is. My family has always taught me to be respectful when it comes to race, religion, or politics so I have never been extremely one sided. The more we learn and talk about these issues, I put myself in a very open minded and accepting environment which I never got to have in highschool.
