    I disagree with your answer for # 1. Please look at A again. Are all Pacific Coast Indians drunks? Isn't that a stereotype?

    I think you're right on #2, although none of the answers seem to cover the diverse backgrounds of the students. But mainstream seems to be the closest. I suggest you check your text again to get precise definitions for each of these terms.

    Your answer to # 3 is correct.

  • Ms. Sue------- This is for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! -

    Ms. Sue,
    on question 2, would the best answer be
    (B)mainsteam or (C)new middle class?

    My text states:

    The term mainstream refers to those individuals or groups who share values
    of the dominant culture. These are primary members of the middle class
    who hold the values of the macroculture
    in the U.S. and are not limited to individuals from a single ethnic or racial group.

    I am still thinking "mainstream" is a better answer.

    Please help!

  • Cultural Diversity -

    I agree, that "mainstream" is the better answer. Your question states that the heads of the households hold managerial and professional positions. They are already in the middle class -- so they are not a "new" middle class. These families share the values of the macroculture by having their children learn English and get an early academic education.
