This week we explored a case in the Philippines where traditional way of farming collide with incoming Western tourism. The issue at stake is whether the rice terrace can still survive the competition between two different cultural values along three world continuum:
individualism vs. collectivism
egalitarian vs. hierarchy
achievement vs. ascription
Please discuss the following:
1 [claim] what is one paired continuum that is relevant to explain the conflict in this case?
2 [definition] what is the definition of your chosen world view continuum?
3 [example] In which way do you think this world view continuum is reflected through the case?
4 [explanation] now that you’ve identified this world view difference as the source of the problem, how do you plan to communicate with both local villagers, government, incoming tourists, all stakeholders about this in order to establish a sustainable model for everyone involved?
Evaluation of on-line Postings
Evaluation of graded discussion posting is based upon the clarity of expression, application of the course concepts to your experiences, synthesis of course ideas, correct American English grammar, correct American English spelling, and timeliness of submission. You should consider the work you submit to me as clear demonstrations of your knowledge. Your classmates and I are the audience for your postings, so you should write these submissions as clearly and as knowledgeably as possible.
To facilitate these written elements, use the CREER format. CREER is an acronym for Concept, Rule (Definition), Example, and Explanation of Reasoning. This is a style of writing that is often used in social science and legal courses. A student using this style will incorporate the course material and demonstrate her or his understanding of it.
Completion of each discussion posting may worth up to 10 pt each. A posting that’s evaluated as “excellent” across all four CREER Elements (Claim, Rules/definition, Examples, Explanations) would earn 1 pt for claim, 2 pt for Rules/definition, 3 pt for examples and 4 pt for explanations.
The words count 400-500
Do not copy from other anywhere or internet. Just write personal thoughts and answer question is fine.
The reading part before start writing I have uploaded in upload files area.
