Laura P.
Answer:

A thesis statement conveys the main idea or argument of an essay, and it's located at the end of the introductory paragraph. A thesis statement serves as a unifying message throughout the essay. All content and claims made within the paper should directly relate to and support the thesis statement.

Question:

What does it mean if a story or novel is written through a third-person omniscient point of view?

Answer:

When a piece of literature is written through a third-person omniscient point of view, the narrator has an all-knowing knowledge of each character in the story. This means the narrator is aware of each character's thoughts, feelings, ambitions, and backgrounds. A classic example of a third-person omniscient story is "Peter Pan" by J. M. Barrie.

Answer:

What is Hofstede's Cultural Dimensions Theory? In the 1980s, Geert Hofstede developed a multifaceted scale that outlines the similarities and differences between cultures across the world (ie. values and beliefs). Hofstede's scale consists of 6 dimensions: Power distance, Individualism vs. Collectivism, Masculinity vs. Femininity, Uncertainty Avoidance, Long-term vs. Short-term orientation, and Indulgence vs. Self-Restraint. How does this theory influence the way we communicate within our respective cultures? The six dimensions of Hofstede's theory directly influence how a person interacts with family, friends, employers, etc... within the guidelines of their culture. For example, where a person's culture falls on the Power Distance scale determines how they interact with authority figures. Cultures that score low on the Power Distance scale tend to be more egalitarian. In a workplace setting, employees are encouraged to ask questions, present ideas, and collaborate with their supervisors. In contrast, cultures that score high on the Power Distance scale tend to assign power based on the person's status. Employers that reside within these cultures expect their subordinates to respect their authority and decisions.
