(3) provide an opportunity to engage in knowledge gathering using an ethnographic framework and to assess the impact of this experience on your knowledge, attitude toward and future practice with this group and other groups different from yourself.
Select a group you wish to learn about (e.g., persons with mental illness, persons with physical disabilities, and persons in the LGBTQ community, a religious group, and women receiving welfare, homeless men, and substance use population). You should NOT be a member of this group. Conduct an interview with your “cultural guide” using at least 3 global questions.
Your paper must be at least 8 pages-long, PLUS Title page, Abstract page, and References page.

How do you know it?
What are your own experiences with the group?
