For this assignment you are going to take on the role of a Communication scholar/Travel Guide and choose one country (other than the U.S.) to research. Using your chosen country, you are to create a PPT that discusses communication characteristics, cultural faux pas, and recommended travel plans for a 7-10-day visit (a 7-day itinerary is NOT an A assignment, FYI – See Rubric below). Feel free to choose a country that is not a mainstream, “popular” tourist destination, and one that you have not yet traveled to. It is important that you include what’s required below and be creative, yet realistic, in your planning.

The PPT must include, but not be limited to, the following:

1. A brief history/background on the country you have chosen. Understandably, many countries may have a vast history. Focus on what you perceive as the most important elements of the country’s history. Maybe discuss the origins/structure of the current government system, how old the country is, what language is spoken, the currency, etc. I’m looking for a min. of 3-4 slides of background on your country (however, what is more important than the quantity of slides is the quality). Be sure to cite your sources on each slide and also on your reference slide.

2. How your chosen country ranks on the following dimensions of cultural variability (must cover all dimensions). Be sure to explain what each dimension is and also give specific examples for your chosen country, for each of these dimensions. Make sure to cite your sources on each slide and also on your reference slide.

  1. Individualism versus Collectivism
  2. Masculinity Versus Femininity
  3. Power Distance
  4. Indulgence Versus Restraint
  5. Long Term Orientation Versus Short Term Orientation
  6. Uncertainty Avoidance

* If you are unable to locate direct research indicating where your country aligns on these dimensions you need to do your best to provide research that supports your rationale for where you would assume your country would rank on these dimensions.

3. Faux Pas. List societal faux pas for the country you have selected. Be specific and give examples. 10-15 Faux Pas are ideal (10 faux pas do not constitute an A on this section). Be sure to cite your sources on each slide and also on your reference slide.

4. A 7-10 day daily break down of activities/tours for someone interested in visiting this country (be creative, have fun, and keep in mind your target audience while planning daily activities – your peers!). Be sure to include cost and information about the included activities.

  1. Flight and accommodation details (and inter-country flights if applicable).
  2. Information about the country (Customs, currency, visa requirements, vaccinations, best time of the year to visit, etc.)
  3. Cost. Understandably, cost will vary depending on the time of the year. Do your best to provide your classmates with a rough estimate of the cost for the trip. Include flight(s), accommodations, tours, food, and anything else that may cost money for this trip. A breakdown and total cost would be an awesome thing to include!

*Do some research online (sites like Tripadvisor, Fodors, Triptuner, to name a few, may be helpful – there are many resources available to help with planning), and talk with friends who may have already traveled to your chosen destination to help with this project. Include pictures! Most importantly, have fun with this assignment and learn something cool about a place you may actually be traveling to yourself in the near future!

Warning – If you copy and paste from websites to your slides without proper citations this constitutes as plagiarism and you will receive a zero on this assignment. Be sure to paraphrase by putting what you read into your own words while also making sure to cite your sources.

In addition to the concepts on culture discussed in this module, be sure to use the ethical decision-making guide from Module 2 in writing the paper. Your paper will be graded on the quality of your argument, the clarity of your writing, and how well you use concepts from this module and the ethical decision-making guide from Module 2.

Giving in or Giving up

“After earning a graduate degree in Engineering Management, Ashton began working for PDRC International. This is a company based in the U.S. which offers engineering, design, and construction services to countries all over the world.

Ashton’s work is focused on international development; her first assignment is to lead a team to develop a bid for a highway construction project in East Africa. After the engineering proposal is submitted, Ashton is proud of the work her team has accomplished and promises her manager she will do everything possible to make sure that PDRC receives the contract.

PDRC’s bid is well-received, and Ashton and her team are flown to East Africa to finish negotiations. Ashton is thrilled when her company receives the bid; the only stipulation is that they build their construction headquarters in a specific region in the country. Ashton then begins scouting the region for a location to build their headquarters.

In order to obtain building permits in the region, Ashton has to negotiate with the local government. As she begins negotiations, she realizes that bribery is both a common and expected practice. If she does not bribe the local officials, she will not be able to build PDRC’s headquarters in that region and consequently will lose the contract; her first managerial project will be a failure. However, it is illegal for a U.S. citizen to bribe a foreign official in order to obtain business; if she is caught for bribery, she could face jail time and her company could be fined millions of dollars.

What should she do?”

Part 1: Survey Design

QUESTION 1a: The Monitoring the Future Survey uses a cross sectional study design (as opposed to a longitudinal study design). What does this mean?

Answer: The monitoring the future survey uses a cross sectional study design which means that data is collected at one point in time on a statistical unit.

QUESTION 1b: You are working at San Diego Health and Human Services as a community health educator. You would like to begin a new project that will involve developing health education programs for teenagers to prevent substance use. But your boss is unsure if such a program is needed and asks you to provide information on if substance use has been increasing, decreasing, or staying the same among teenagers in San Diego over the last few years. Can you answer this public health question using our dataset (the 2019 Monitoring the Future Survey, 12th grade)? Why or why not?

Answer: looking at the data base, it looks like substance use has been decreasing among teenageas nationally, however looking at San Diego teenagers it is hard to tell from the data since it doesn’t give us exact data for each county therefore, it will be hard to determine if substance use is increasing, decreasing or staying the same among teenagers in San Diego but it is always a good initiative to start and develop health education programs for teenagers to spread awareness and further educate them.

QUESTION 2: Based on your output, what are the levels of measurement for each of these variables? Are any of these levels of measurement incorrect? If so, which ones? Why?

Answer: Based on our output, the levels for each variables are as follows, for sex is nominal, for race and ethnicity is nominal and for vaping marijuana in the last 30 days is nominal. The level of measurement for Vaping is incorrect because it is ranked in a hierarchical fashion in a non-numerical clear way therefore it should be ordinal.

QUESTION 4: How many of the participants are Black, white, Hispanic/Latinx? How much missing data is there on race/ethnicity?

Answer: 1262 of the participants were black or 9.2%, 6970 were white and made up 50.8% of the participants, 2538 were hispanic/latinx and made up 18.5% of the participants. 2943 or 21.5% was missing data on race/ethnicity.

QUESTION 5: How many of the participants are male, female? How much missing data is there on sex?

Answer: 6123 of participants are males and make up 44.7%, 6540 of participants are female and make up 47.7% of the participants. 1050 or 7.7% is missing data on sex.

QUESTION 6: What proportion of participants did not vape marijuana at all in the last 30 days? What proportion of data is missing on this variable?

Answer: the proportion of participants that did not vape marijuana at all in the last 30 days is 7048/13,713 which is 51.4% of all participants. The proportion of data is missing on this variable is 5399/13,713 which is 39.4%.
