For this Assignment, you will examine the ways that cultural expressions influence your daily life. You are welcome to use images in this Assignment, however, the written content needs to be at least 750 words.
Share three items of cultural expression that influence your life. Consider the cases in the Reading for ideas. You may also include the item of cultural expression that you introduced in your Discussion for this unit. You may want to write about recipes, art, music, sports, films, photography, religious traditions, or narratives about your family history. You are welcome to go beyond this list. These three cultural expressions should communicate something about your beliefs, customs, and way of life.

III. After you have introduced and explained all of the expressions, consider the three expressions as a group and answer these questions.
