in santa fe district v doe the court ruled that student led prayer at a school football game failed the lemon test because it was “ too entangled “ what does that mean


Answer: The courts thought the games were too closely related to school activity.

Santa Fe Independent School District v. Doe is a case in which the U. S. Supreme Court ruled that a policy that allowed student prayer before varsity high-school football games was a violation of the First Amendment's establishment clause, which prohibits the government from establishing, advancing, or giving favour to any religion.

Moreover, the court argued that the school board's policy violated the "Lemon test" which ruled that a statute that does not have a secular, legislative purpose is considered invalid.

The reason why they thought the prayers and the games were "too entangled" was because games could be considered part of school activities. Many students needed to attend these games for athletics or for extra credits, and prayer therefore could be seen as being part of school policy.

The courts thought students might be pressured to pray.

In 1976, american anthropologist edward t. hall compared ____________ to an ____________. culture, ocean culture, iceberg social norms, ocean customs, iceberg


Edward T. Hall developed the Iceberg Model of Culture in 1976.  He hypothesized that culture was like an iceberg in that there were two kinds: internal and external. External is the outer manners of a society while internal are the principles, standards, and thought patterns underlying those behaviors. 


In 1976, American anthropologist Edward T. Hall compared behavior to an iceberg analogy of culture. He stated that if the culture of a society was an iceberg, then some aspects will be clear above the water but a large portion is hidden inside the water.


He designed the model of iceberg in which he placed the ‘Behavior’ on top, ‘Beliefs’ in the middle and ‘Values & thought patterns’ at the bottom (hidden portion). He explained his model between conscious and subconscious part.

The conscious (external) part is what we can see (top part) such as behavior and belief while subconscious (internal) part which includes values, thought and patterns is hidden.
