Assignment: The Intersections of Life: Coming of Age
Experiencing the transition from childhood to adulthood, or coming of age, is a human universal. How these rites of passage happen, however, varies widely from culture to culture. The ceremonies announce societal values through carefully preserved, meaningful symbols. Similarly, coming of age rituals convey the responsibilities of the adult individual in a particular community or culture and mark the beginning of the next stage of life.
This Assignment provides an opportunity to research coming of age experiences from several different cultures. You are also encouraged to research additional examples of the transition to adulthood to better understand the values inherent in the rituals and what that means to the culture. Increasing the understanding of cultural values around the globe will better prepare you to successfully communicate with individuals in those cultures.
To prepare for your Assignment:
Review the coming of age stories in your Learning Resources and note the similarities and differences in how various cultures mark adulthood.
Select one of the media examples or stories that resonated with you.
Reflect on your personal experience of transitioning to adulthood.
Submit a 2- to 3-page paper including the following:
Explain how your culture marks the passage of a person from childhood to adulthood.
Provide a brief story of your own personal coming of age experience, the moment you feel you became an adult in the eyes of your culture.
Choose one of the coming of age stories from our Week 1 Resources and explain why that particular story resonated with you and your story. (see attachment)
