I realized that they dress a lot like us and have interests in some of the same things as us.
I realized that as well Jena
The teleconference helped me see that not all of the north is actually crowded and that there are rural areas. It also helped me understand why northerners don't like to be call ma'am.
It helped me understand they they aren't much different than us.
I noticed that a lot of people from the North didn't really live in cities, like I thought they did.
the teleconference helped me break the stereotype that everyone in the north lives in a big city
I think it helped me both. There are always going be stereo types between the north and south, but talking to this class in Michigan really helped grasp better on the concept of the similarities.
After the teleconference, I understand that northerners do not live in cities like New York and they think 60 degrees is warm but to us it is cold.
Yes, I would agree 60 degrees would be warm for us in the winter but it's not always cold here. In the summer on a hot day it can get up to 90-100 degrees.
The teleconference help me break the stereotype that must Northerner's talk rude because being from the South all your use to saying and hearing is "yes ma'am and no sir" so automatically I though that y'all Northerner's were kind rude since y'all don't use those type of words.Maybe it just the way the people around you take the word i don't know.
For the most part being born in the north, people's views on how you take people saying ma'm and sir, people really just have to think about how it is phrased. And I understand that people down there might think we are a bit rude for not saying ma'm and sir, its just most of us were actually not raised to.
In the survey and the live chat it proved that both North and South students are alike in several ways.
The Skype call helped me understand that not everyone in the North live in big cities. Y`all live in neighborhoods just like us. It`s like the exact opposites. We thought y`all lived in big cities and you guys thought we live out in the country. Maybe we are similar after all.
I didn't think any of the stereotypes where true in the first place...
I never really had a stereotype for people living in the North because I moved from Long Island, NY.
They were much more like us then I expected, so it broke my stereo type on them being different.
The stereotype of people in the North live in small apartments and live a fast pace was broken. When I visualize the North that is the first thing that pops to my mind. After the conference I realized that it wasn't fair I assume that everyone lives in small complexes.
I broke the stereotype that no people in the north like sweet tea
I didn't really have any stereotypes broken as I try not to go by stereotypes, and I've been to the northern United States before.
We are really swapped because y'all thought we all live in the country and we really live in neighborhoods and everything is close, and we thought y'all lived in big cities but y'all are also live in neighborhoods with more land.
I didn't really have any stereotypes towards Northerners! I used to live in the North before I came to the South.
how many days are there in your school year
There are 180 school days in our year.
I've been up to Illinois and Indiana and that really broke the stereotypes for me.
I didn't really have any stereotypes broken since the teleconference.
The biggest stereotype I believe the South makes about the North is, we the North listen to rap/hip hop music. But we in the North tend to listen to country music. We even host a big country music even called the B-93 Birthday Bash, when all of the country hits such as Blake Shelden.
Now I understand that most Southerners do enjoy sweet tea. I was curious because I had never heard that stereotype prior to the conference and it is interesting for me to have it confirmed.
I realized that even if you are messaging or blogging, that you guys still use the word Y'all. For us we just say you all. so any way works. one is for the north and one is for the south.
The video conference that we recently had confirmed that mostly everyone in the south cherishes sweet tea. I myself never thought sweet tea was good, even when I went to the south. No one in my family ever drinks sweet tea. I love drinking carbonated water all the time, everyone in my family does.
I always thought that words like ya'll were only used in movies and not actually said by people from the south. This piece of information about southerners confirmed/made a stereotype of people from the south because they do say ya'll and it is not only movies.
I really liked the teleconference because it showed me that some stereotypes are all ways not true, like that all southerners are rednecks or they all live on a farm. I also learned that in the south saying ma'am and sir is what they say every day.
I can't think of any stereotypes that I had before this about the North.
north and south are similar in some ways
