Follow the steps below to complete the Discussion prompt. In this Discussion you will create a definition and answer the questions below. (Approx 300 words)

Step 1

Create a working definition of either “race” or “ethnicity.

A working definition begins with your personal understanding of the term, and then evolves as you explore new information, reflect on, and examine your ideas.

After developing your personal understanding of the word, improve it by incorporating knowledge from this weeks module materials and any external research. Taking this step helps the term become more of a concept in your mind.

Finally, consider any surprises or modifications in your understanding of the term and the concept as a result of this approach.

Step 2

Discuss the differences between race and ethnicity.

Which concept has the most influence on your life and social interactions and why?
