Cultural Literacy: Mores

This year, kind of out of the blue, I was delegated the responsibility of teaching a sociology class. I suppose it’s a good thing I have some knowledge of the topic, but I am still developing the curriculum as the school year proceeds. This Cultural Literacy worksheet on mores, thus, is a recent fruit of these labors. I don’t know about you, but it seems to me that students, by the time they reach high school, ought to understand mores as both a concept and as a potential way of being in the world–especially if one consents to a society’s mores (i.e., as long as one is not agreeing to, say, cannibalism).

In any case, this is a half-page document with a reading of two sentences and two comprehension questions.

If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
