Your assignment is to reflect on the influences that have shaped

Construct a family tree diagram going back at least as far as your grandparents
and indicate for each person their residential locations. What comes
to mind when you consider these varying living environments. You
do not have to write about all six types but should write about at least
two. Consider the role of news media, television, film, music, and
your own experiences in shaping your attitudes.
