Sociologists define society as a fairly large number of people who reside in the same geographic area, are independent of other people who are outside their territory or area, and participate in a mutual culture. Sharing a similar culture with other members of society helps to define the group to which you belong. Members of the society share a cultural experience, transmit it from one generation to the next, and archive their culture through various means of expression, such as art, literature, and even video recordings.
Task: Write an essay that highlights your understanding of culture and the process of social transmission within a society. Please provide two or three examples of cultural transmission within a society in your essay. Your essay must be 400-550 words, adhere to MLA writing style guide, and use (either by direct citation or paraphrase) at least three academic sources.
