Norms cont'd

Today we continued our discussion of Norms by reviewing what a folkway, more, and taboo are.  Then we examined the videoes from the posts below to make the point that mores are really important but they are not necessarily laws.  However they shape how we think about who we are.  Norms (and culture) affect our feelings, actions, and thoughts (The social construction of reality).

Also, this is IMPORTANT we assigned two assignments that are in your packet:

A reading called Kohl's American values is due this friday.

An assigment/experiment is due next thursday.
