Advocacy Group Meeting: It’s all about Respect!!!

Miss Hill’s Advocacy class met this past Tuesday, November 11, 2014, to discuss respect. The topic was, “How is respect shown in your culture?” Among a class representing American, Japanese, Korean, Guatemalan, and Indian cultures  some interesting perspectives were brought forth. One difference in respect between American and some Asian cultures is the respect of elders. In the States an elder is someone that is usually at least 15 years older than you. But, in South Korea and Japan, and elder is anyone that is at least 1 year older than you. Wow!
