Melting Pot

Post  mariaelena3709 on Wed Feb 10, 2010 3:27 pm

Melting pot. It's a weird word isn't it??? It is the word used to describe the united States and Canada. The economy of the U. S. and Canada are pretty much the same, except that right now the U. S. is going through a rough time.

1) The word Melting Pot means that the economy is getting better, and better.
2) Melting Pot is the word used to describe Canada.
3) The U. S. is considered a Melting Pot because the economy there is rising.
4) Salad Bowl is the word i would use to describe the Dominican Republic because the economy is rising, but not very fast so to me it seems like we keep sliding down a salad bowl.
5) The main idea of section 3 chapter 8 is to show the cultures and the economies of the United States and Canada.

Chapter 8, Section 3

Post  Ana09Martinez on Wed Feb 10, 2010 4:58 pm

1- Melting pot means joining together, and getting better and better.
2- A word that describes Canada is melting pot because it´s economy is high.
3- The U.S is considered a Melting pot because it´s economy level is rising day by day.
4- I would consider the D.R a Salad Bowl. This is because, the D.R´s economy is rising, just not very fast.
5- The main idea is to show the different types of cultures that Canada and the U.S have.

1-Melting pot is an analogy for the way , in which homogenous soceties develop, in which the cultures. the religion and the races, are mixed into a multi-ethnic group.
2-To describe the Canada I use melting pot, because there was a mix of different cultures.
3-Because in the U.S are combined cultures, races and religion. Even if the immigrants are of different country they keep their life with their habits, but they feel as Americans.
4-I think that the Dominican Republic is a " salad bowl", because there are a lot of cultures that aren't combined. I think that in ten years will be a melting pot. Besides the economy in D.R. is growing, but slowly.
5-The idea want rapresent the names of ancient groups of America and Canada their economy and their culture.

1- Melting Mot kind of shows the way canada is getting more advanced/better.
2- The word melting pot is a funny word but it defines canada in a way.
3- The United States can be called a melting pot because they are also getting better and richer.
4- I say the D.R is like a can of beans because your trying to get out and improving slowly but your economy still stinks! lol!
5- The chapter is pretty much explaining how the economy works and how its being used in the U.S and Canada

1. Melting pot means a country in which many cultures blend together to form a single culture.
2. A word that is used to describe Canada is a Mosaic, because it is a blend of many cultures.
3. The U.S. is considered a melting pot because it is one country and it has many cultures, but all those cultures form together to form only one culture.
4. I would describe the D.R by saying that it isn´t a melting pot. It is many people who share the same language and cultures, so I would say it is more of an ethnic group.
5. The main idea of section 3 is to show how the United States and Canada differ and how they are alike. The cultures of both the U.S and Canada. Smile
