Combine two specialized areas of expertise with a well-rounded understanding of the sociological and cultural implications of the specialized knowledge

Assignment 1

 

The following topic(s) will demonstrate what the discussion is about, but feel free to branch off or expand on the topics. At the end of the discussion, you will be asked to craft a 150 word reflection on what you have learned through this conversation and post it to the Weekly Reflection Journal. The more active you are in this part of the discussion, the more you will have to draw from in your reflection, so get involved, be active, help out your classmates when they need it, and, most of all, enjoy the conversation.

Using the checklist on p. 130 of the text, evaluate your first draft. Discuss the strengths and weaknesses you found regarding your own writing and how you plan to build upon and/or improve what you discovered. Please respond (or give advice) to at least two of your peers.

 

Assignment 2

 

This week, through our work, we are moving closer to assembling our research project, and we are practicing the habit of self-evaluating our work. Additionally, we have begun to explore the following course outcomes:

  • Analyze extensive research data
  • Articulate research findings in a concise, comprehensive report
  • Consider ethical, social, cultural, and diversity-related implications of the topic

In this reflection journal, in at least 150 words, reflect back on what you have learned so far through the course readings, assignment (if you’ve completed it yet), and our discussion. Consider the following questions to guide your reflection:

  • What, if anything, did you find surprising, particularly challenging, interesting, or useful?
  • From what you know about this course so far, what connections can you make to previous learning experiences, and how do you think this course will help you as you move forward in your college and professional life?
  • How do the course outcomes for this week apply to your experience so far?

What questions do you still need answered?

As always, consider how your learning relates to the course learning objectives stated above. Consider the following questions to guide your reflection:

  • What, if anything, did you find surprising, particularly challenging, interesting, or useful?
  • From what you’ve learned throughout this course, what connections can you make to previous learning experiences, and how do you think what you’ve learned in this course will help you as you move forward in your college and professional life?
