HOMEWORK

Overview
For the first part of your final project, the critical analysis portfolio, you will select an issue/event of technology and critically analyze it through the four general
education lenses: history, humanities, social sciences, and natural and applied sciences. By viewing the issue/event through these lenses, you will gain insight into
how the interconnected nature of technology affects society as well as both your own individual framework of perception and the choices, attitudes, and
behaviors of others in the world around you.
For this second milestone, due in Module Four, you will analyze your issue/event from Milestone One through the history and humanities lenses. This will provide
you with a chance to practice analyzing your issue/event through these lenses and receive feedback on this practice attempt.
Prompt
First, review the overviews and resources in Modules One through Three, as well as the Four Lenses document from Module One.
Next, analyze your issue/event through the lens of history, and address the following:
 How does this issue/event interact with the history lens and impact social issues?
 In what ways does the history lens help articulate a deeper understanding of the social issue(s) that inform your issue/event?
Next, analyze your issue/event through the lens of the humanities by exploring the following questions:
 How is this issue/event portrayed creatively in society? What is the message or commentary of this representation?
 How does this representation interact with you in your personal and professional lives?
Note: You are completing two separate analyses: one from history and one from the humanities. You must submit two papers in a single Word document.
Be sure to use evidence from research to support your analysis. Refer to course resources, the LibGuide for this course, as well as any other pertinent
resources to support your responses. Relevant current news sources may be used with instructor approval. Incorporate instructor feedback into your final
project.
The following critical elements must be addressed:

Milestone Rubric
Guidelines for Submission: Final Project Milestone Two should be submitted as two papers in a single Word document. The entire submission should be 2–4
pages in length, double-spaced, using 12-point Times New Roman font, one-inch margins. Support your responses with at least two sources for each lens from
the assigned course resources, and/or other scholarly sources located independently via the Shapiro Library. Cite your supporting sources in APA style.
Please note that the grading rubric for this milestone submission is not identical to that of the final project. The Final Project Part One Rubric will include an
additional “Exemplary” category that provides guidance as to how you can go above and beyond “Proficient” in your final submission, as well as additional
elements to address
