Historical context refers to the moods, attitudes, and conditions that existed in a certain time. Context is the “setting” for an event that occurs, and it will have an impact on the relevance of the event and is an important factor to consider when describing something in history. Culture is all aspects of life, the totality of meanings, ideas and beliefs shared by individuals within a group of people and is learned, and includes language, values, norms, customs.
· Choose two contexts, one cultural and one historical.
· Think about what it means to be an adult in each of these two contexts.
• Contrast the educational and career opportunities in each of these two contexts.
• Think about the socioeconomic status related to the time or culture you selected.
• Consider the concepts of on-time/off-time and the social clock within each context.
• Consider the need for dependence/independence for each context.
With these thoughts in mind:
Post a brief description of the cultural or historical context you selected, including the socioeconomic state related to the cultural or historical context. Then describe the expectation of what adult attainment means in each context. Discuss the educational and career opportunities. Finally, explore the potential attainment of adult status, considering at least one of the following concepts: social clock (on-time/off-time), or independence/dependence.
