Module 2 Assignments

What do I need to do to get the most out of this module?


The Way We Are, chapter one of Burke's  The Day the Universe Changed – 

There is a Video that accompanies Burke's chapter. It's not required and watching it is not enough to prepare for the quiz, but it's a very helpful clarification of the content of the chapter. 

This article is required.   There is a video embedded in the articles, so be sure to watch it. It picks up where Burke leaves off. Once the world, as we know it in our own view, expands and includes a wide variety of cultures, disciplines and perspectives, what do we do?
