The method of enculturation occupies a central position in the outlook of modern Anthropology. Turn yourself momentarily into anthropological fieldworkers examining the process of enculturation in the U.S. or other cultures you might be familiar with. What are the processes at work in teaching the younger generations how to be successful members in this culture? What are they being taught through these various processes and activities ? Be specific in you answers and remember we are discussing cultural mechanisms that are transmitting cultural information to the next generation. Feel free to use examples from other cultures you may know or have experienced.
