Week 5 Project
Assignment: Final Project
The Final Project that you started in Week 1 is due by Day 7 of this week. Please be sure your project meets the specified criteria before submitting it.
Over the previous four weeks, you read articles about a chosen global issue that prompted you to expand your perspective on that issue. This approach has encouraged you to turn inside out assumptions about an idea or issue. For your Final Project, you will write more about how these varied perspectives affect your ideas about globalization and the many changes that accompany this huge concept.
