Now after we have had a chance to talk face to face, I realize that you all don't really live on farms. You all said that you live in suburbs instead of on a farm, which is just like us.
well some of us own farms but we don't always live on them. hey Elijah I love your name it reminds me of Elijah Wood who played Frodo Baggins in the lord of the rings films BEST MOVIES EVER!!!
The sterotype about yankees was broken to me, because I thought that everyone called us that but I learned that it stopped.
A lot of us in the north thought that most Southerners live on farms, but now we know that isn't true. I'm sure some Southerners live on farms, but not as many as we assumed.
that's exactly right, there are farms of course, but none of us that you catted with really live on farms
I think that the stereotype about all Northerners living in small houses and apartments was broken because they told us that they live in houses just like us.
i thought it was weird because they actually live a lot more spread out than we do
I LOVE your name! It's so cool and not something you see everyday!
Before the teleconference I thought that no one in the north knew what sweet tea even was. Though you guys seem a little less serious, (no home-brewing) you actually do drink sweet tea, quite regularly.
Kristen: Did you know McDonalds sells sweet tea, some of us get it there.
Lilly: I drink different kinds of tea every day. But I think sweat tea is pretty cool.
Don't get me started on McDonald's sweet tea. It's barely sweet tea.
Some of us are really into sweet tea, such as me.. I make some at home nearly everyday after school, though I cannot speak for everyone.
I do too don't worry grace, sweet tea is bae! haha
one stereotype i thought about northerners was that they used slang terms just like us in the south, but after video chatting i didn't hear any change in the way they talked. Besides you guys and fitta.
I believe the stereotype that both regions have different use different phrasing and language was reinforced, as the Southerners said y'all and the Northerners said you guys.
One stereotype that doesn't make sense is that people form the south are rednecks. It doesn't really make sense because a lot of you guys are just like anybody else in the world.
What I have discovered about the southerners is that they have the advanced technology like we do.
I'm surprised that came as a surprise.
I learned that southerners are not like the one's we see on TV.
yeah some of us thought you had a Jersey Accent! LOL
Before the tele thing I thought that you had Jeresy Accents
I agree with one of the kid's on here that most southerners don't live on farms
I think the stereotype that Southerners live on farms was broken since they actually got to talk to us face to face.
I thought yall would talk a lot different than us, but it wounded almost the same or close to it
i noticed that you guys talked about how the hottest it got up there was about 100 degrees, i did not know it got that hot up there. but you also said that the average was around 75(i think) but our average temperature is normally 90-95.
Usually our average temperature for Summer is around 60-70, and for Winter you usually can't expect more than 30 degrees at high, and our lowest is around -10 to -20 degrees.
Our summer temperature can get up to 90 degrees, a couple of years ago it was more than 100. Our winters can get to -10 to -20.
It helped me understand that we're not that different. I think that when most people think of the north, they are typically thinking of New York and around that area, because it's what the media has planted in our minds. But, seeing them, they're not that different from us.
I guess you guys aren't really Canada, hockey guys, if you catch my drift. We aren't different, really.
now that we actually have seen each other, I know that the north isn't what I had thought of them. I has surprised to know that you don't have such a strong northern accent.
Is your dads name Colonel, Audrey?
You guys don't really have major accents like I thought you would.
Do you guys use the Phrase "Y'all" or "finna"?
Yall like every day
Of course we say Y'all and finna. I don't even know what finna means, but yeah. I hear it.
What does finna mean?
As far as I know, no one says "finna" that often. I don't think it counts as a southern term anyway. But people say y'all all the time. It's a natural thing.
I also wanna know that is a good guess Andy
I thought everyone would have big accents but no one really did
I was really surprised by how similar we all are to one another. And although the north and south both have differences, this project has taught me that just because you may think that someone is different doesn't mean they really are.
When we got the survey results, I said that you guys thought that northerners were rude and pushy. When we did the conference, we thought that we were respectful and you guys were to! I think that the conference broke the barrier between kindness and rudeness. I think that that is really amazing. Breakthrough!
I thought we would all be really different. Really, were all a lot alike. Ya'll also don't have an accent as much as I thought ya'll would.
Yesterday, I found out that a lot of Northerners live on more land than most of us do. Not just small apartments
The teleconference helped me understand the difference in behaviors. People act lively and happy.
We all aren't really different from each other. I thought that you guys would have an accent but you really don't.
I never knew that northerners would hunt as much as yall do. I thought that was mainly a southern thing.
I though it snowed almost everyday in Michigan, but (I forgot who it was) said it doesn't. Thnx for sharing info to break stereotype.
I was surprised that yall even know what hunting is because when I went to the north I asked my family if we could go hunting and they were like '' um..... whats hunting?!?!?!? I love to hunt. cause I can just be alone and no one to bother me.
A lot of the kids here LOVE to hunt!! It's a really big hobby in Michigan. 2/3 of the kids here probably hunt.
how you guy thought that we lived on farms. I know that I used to and work on it. and I grew up helping out with my uncle and aunt. I don't anymore. I live in the suburbs. so not all of us do but some of us do.
The teleconference helped me understand just how different each person actually is, and that we cant judge half the country by a couple of people.
the teleconference helped me understand that I need to stop grouping people into categories because all it does it hurt people.
It helped me understand that you guys are just simply different in cultural tradition and some people gets offensed by stereotypes.
*Be respectful.*Be clear.*Check your spelling.
