Pick a controversial issue that you have heard practiced in another culture and do some web research in order to better understand the cultural frame of reference within which that practice is understood. By "controversial," we mean an issue that is considered normal when seen from another culture's frame of reference but which may not be seen as normal or acceptable from your own or someone else's cultural frame of reference. Pay particular attention to the way language and labels encourage you to see the issue in a particular cultural frame of reference.
Here is a short list of some possible controversies:
eating dogs in some countries
Muslims chopping off hands of thiefs
Americans with guns
Americans with the death penalty
female genital mutilation
death penalty for gays
