In different parts of the world culture is different because people view, value, and use symbols to represent who they are. People within a culture value the same things and sometimes they have the same opinion about a certain thing. For instance, in the Mexican culture we value our family, extended family, and community. We value our family and community because in our culture we know that we can count with them when we need their help or they need our help. In many cultures, including my culture, we have traditions that we value.

The students that read the book would discuss the chapter by availability bias because I do not think that people can remember a lot of detail of what they read only the main points and key terms. Not everyone in class would answer with the right answer because we tend to forget what we read or what we pretended to read.
