UNFORMATTED ATTACHMENT PREVIEW

YOUR WORLD PROJECT 100 points Explanation Much of what makes Geography exciting and relevant is the fact that the ‘field’ surrounds us: our bodies, homes, neighborhoods, cities, States, countries, and even the virtual world, each form spaces, places and landscapes that we read, analyze and shape. This assignment gives you the opportunity to investigate the places and spaces that make up your world. In so doing you will continue to apply the spatial perspective, ask Geographic questions and incorporate other things you’ve learned. Important Considerations PLAN: This assignment CANNOT be completed at the last minute. If you procrastinate, you will be unduly stressed and your work quality will be affected. SHOW YOUR THINKING WORK There are NO right or wrong answers. I am looking for your effort at observation, showing what you have learned, and critical thinking. If some of your answers are that you did not see, then explain what you could have seen or attempt to explain the absence. Overview Activities: You will be completing two activities total for this project. Activities are divided into two categories (see next page) and you must select one activity from each of the two categories. The two categories are: 1. Critical Media:​ in this category, you will select some media (article, audio or video) that portrays a Geographic or current event issue, and you will critically analyze that media by discussing terms and concepts from the course. 2. Get Virtual:​ in this category, you will explore the virtual world and contemplate the effects of globalization on how you access virtual worlds, what of those worlds you do or do not see, and what experiences those places have with globalization processes. For each activity, you will select your own experience (media and virtual world) and then complete a written response to the category-specific prompt (see next page). Activity Directions ACTIVITY OPTIONS Select ​one​ activity option from each of the following categories. Read the related prompt ​before​ you start. You can find more specific suggested activities on the last page if you’re having trouble with this list. “GET CRITICAL” Select a Geography-related article that is interesting to you (it must be over a full page when print previewed). Comparing perspectives: find a Geography- related issue and find two different (cultural, political or economic) perspectives on that issue. Read the first chapter of a non-fiction, Geography-related book. Watch a documentary related to physical or human geography. “GET VIRTUAL” Virtual Landscape Collage: pick a place you are unfamiliar with; find 6 online images, carefully reference the source and write detailed captions. Review an online exhibit related to physical or human geography. Virtual Field Trip: find a virtual field trip for location(s) you’ve never been to before. Cultural Products Collage: pick a country you are unfamiliar with; find examples of cultural artifacts, traditional or modern, multimedia or photos (music, art, pottery, dance, clothing, language, literature/poetry, food, customs, etc.) PROMPTS Respond to all parts of prompt (numbers); each part in its own complete paragraph. You will have three paragraphs for each activity response. Get Critical Prompts: 1. Provide an in your own words summary of the important points. 2. What has to do with Geography? Include terms from class, with in your own words explanations. 3. For the last paragraph, choose from… a. What were your reactions to what you’ve read/watched? Describe and detail at least two reactions/thoughts. b. What consequences can you identify or future predictions can you make? Describe and detail at least two. Get Virtual Prompts: 1. Briefly introduce the activity: what did you do? Where did it virtually take you? Why did you select it? 2. What does it have to do with Geography? What could you connect to our class? What spatial perspective questions did you have? Were you able to find answers? 3. Reflect on our early discussions of globalization and global communications technology. What do you think of the experience of connecting to the world virtually? Beneficial or not? What about the places you visited, are they accurately represented? Do they get the same access to your world? In your responses, you are expected to think critically. You are expected to know what that means, so review these sources ​What is Critical Thinking? and ​Critical Thinking: Where to Begin​. After​ you’ve completed all your activities, then you’re ready to move on.
