Final Project – Part One – Diversity Instructions

Submit your final portfolio—an analysis of an issue or event in diversity through the four general education lenses: history, humanities, social sciences, and natural and applied sciences.

Note: Be sure to incorporate instructor feedback from your final project milestones into this final submission, particularly Milestones One, Two, and Four.

To complete this assignment, review the Final Project Part One Guidelines and Rubric PDF document. IDS 400 Final Project Part One Guidelines and Rubric

Overview
This course explores diversity and its impact on the world around us. Diversity influences society, and society influences diversity, creating a feedback loop
between them. We will critically analyze this feedback loop in this course through social, historical, and theoretical approaches to diversity as well as the four
general education lenses: history, humanities, natural and applied sciences, and social sciences. Each of these four perspectives allows us to better understand
the construction of diversity and its interrelation with society. From this enhanced understanding, you will be equipped to draw connections between popular
culture and your personal and professional lives, helping you to become a better-informed citizen who can make a positive difference in the world.

Issues and events in diversity have a pervading influence on many aspects of society, and how they are dealt with requires diverse knowledge and perspectives to
investigate and change. The purpose of this project is to examine a specific issue or event in diversity and how it impacts individuals and society through the
development of a critical analysis portfolio, and later a presentation in which you will demonstrate your ability to think critically, investigate, and communicate
clearly. These skills are often necessary to achieve personal and professional goals across many disciplines.

In this assignment, you will demonstrate your mastery of the following course outcomes:

 Analyze the relationships among culture, diversity, and self by investigating their influence on one’s discipline of study or chosen profession
 Integrate interdisciplinary approaches for determining how issues of diversity affect modern societies in both personal and professional contexts
 Recommend strategies for overcoming obstacles in diversity to meet personal and professional goals
 Assess the challenges of overcoming issues in diversity through the incorporation of diverse perspectives and viewpoints informed by relevant literature

and peer experiences

Prompt
For Final Project Part One, you will select a specific issue or event in diversity and critically analyze it through the four general education lenses: history,
humanities, social sciences, and natural and applied sciences. Through viewing the issue or event through these lenses, you will gain insight into how the
intersectional nature of diversity affects society as well as both your own individual framework of perception and the choices, attitudes, and behaviors of others

Be sure to support your analyses with appropriate and relevant evidence from theory and research.

Specifically, you must address the critical elements listed below.

I. Introduction: You will compile a series of critical analyses of a single event or issue in diversity through the four general education lenses: history,
humanities, natural and applied sciences, and social sciences.

1

A. Topic: Using the four lenses, explain how an issue or event within diversity has or has not influenced modern society. [IDS-400-02]
II. Lens Analysis: In this part of the assessment, you will analyze your chosen issue or event through each of the following lenses to determine its impact on

various institutions, using evidence and research to support each analysis:
A. History [IDS-400-01]
B. Humanities [IDS-400-01]
C. Natural and Applied Sciences [IDS-400-01]
D. Social Sciences [IDS-400-01]

III. Conclusion
A. Explain how integrating the four lenses helps people to understand how problems in diversity impact others in both professional and personal

contexts. [IDS-400-02]
B. Analyze how social practices have been shaped by issues and events in diversity in modern culture. [IDS-400-02]
C. Using relevant research or diverse perspectives, assess the benefits and challenges of addressing issues in diversity. [IDS-400-06]
D. Explain how analyzing diversity can help in your interactions with those with different viewpoints, cultures, and perspectives. [IDS-400-04]

Milestones
Milestone One: Critical Analysis Portfolio and Presentation Proposal
In Module Two, you will select an issue or event in diversity to analyze through the four general education lenses. You will explain the issue or event and its
relationship to diversity as well as describe its connection to all four lenses. This milestone will be graded with the Milestone One Rubric.

Milestone Two: Analyzing an Issue or Event in Diversity Through the Lenses of the History and the Humanities
In Module Four, you will analyze your issue or event through the history and humanities lenses. This will provide you with a chance to practice analyzing your
issue or event through these lenses and receive feedback on this practice attempt. This milestone will be graded with the Milestone Two Rubric.

Milestone Four: Analyzing an Issue or Event in Diversity Through the Lenses of the Natural and Applied Sciences and the Social Sciences
In Module Six, you will analyze your issue or event through the lenses of natural and applied sciences and the social sciences. Like Milestone Two, this task
provides you with an opportunity to dive deeper into your analysis of the issue or event through these two lenses. This milestone will be graded with the
Milestone Four Rubric.

Final Project Part One Submission: Critical Analysis Portfolio
In Module Seven, you will submit your completed portfolio. It should be a complete, polished document containing all of the critical elements of the final
product. It should reflect the incorporation of feedback gained throughout the course. This submission will be graded with the Final Project Part One Rubric.
