II. Provide several descriptive slides that:
a. Describe key points to provide context using information from Section 1: History and Contemporary Viewpoint from Milestone Two
b. Use key examples that you identified in Section 2: Local Real-World Applications from Milestone Two to illustrate opportunities and challenges for the change that you want to happen
c. Illustrate the importance and impact of your topic using information from Section 3: Global Significance, Impact, and Applications from the final project paper.
I. Provide a thorough description of your action plan of specific steps that you need to take to make the change happen. This should be the major part of your presentation.
II. Create Conclusions slide(s) that illustrate how your action plan demonstrates your personal responsibility for the environment.

Overview The final project for this course is the creation of a paper that will be a comprehensive personal reflection and action plan focused on personal natural resource use. The purpose of this assignment is to demonstrate mastery of the course concepts and encourage students to incorporate course learning into an applicable future choice plan. The purpose of the presentation component (graded separately) is to effectively demonstrate your plan to peers and for peer review of their ideas. 

 Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed in the final paper:

  1. Provide an introduction that describes the topic. Specifically: a) Define the scope of the topic. What are the natural resources involved? How were they created? How are they used and obtained? b) Briefly indicate the importance of this topic to:
  2. You personally
  3. American society

iii. The global community 

  1. Section 1: History and Contemporary Viewpoint. Include and build upon your Section 1 submission (Background, Historical Awareness in America, Historical Awareness Globally) from Milestone Two by incorporating instructor feedback and by adding:
  2. a) A synopsis of the historical development of the topic from inception through modern-day usages, both in American culture as well as the global culture, focusing on the most significant developments and contributors to the topic.
  3. b) A timeline of the most significant developments and contributors (e.g., scientists, activists) to the topic to provide a summary of the most important events and who was involved.

III. Section 2: Local Real-World Applications and Specific Steps. Include and build upon your Section 2 submission (Opportunities and Hurdles) from Milestone Two by incorporating instructor feedback and by adding:

  1. a) A synopsis of the opportunities for change and the hurdles that you will have to overcome
  2. b) Outline an action plan of specific steps that you will need to take to make the change happen. All projects should include the following, plus any additional items that are project-specific:
  3. The short- and long-term costs to implement your change (for example, monetary, social, time, effort, etc.)
  4. The personnel and/or skills needed and availability (e.g., electrician, local politicians, HOA managers and members, construction crews, yard work)

iii. A timeframe (e.g., time necessary for planning stage, implementation stage, most limiting time-based action items, etc.) 

  1. Local laws and regulations (e.g., local and state water laws, HOA regulations, organic designation laws, etc.)

 

  1. Section 3: Global Significance, Impact, and Applications. Compare and contrast local (i.e., local to you) versus global application of your chosen topic as well as the global significance and impacts for this type of change locally and globally. Depending on your topic selection, this may include comparisons to both a developed country and a developing country or between two widely differing areas of America. Specifically:
  2. a) Describe two key differences between your chosen comparison communities (i.e., your own and another), for example, regarding the cost of making a change, skilled personnel needed and availability, differences in local laws and regulations. For example, in California there may be many local regulations/laws that have to be addressed before you could disconnect your home from city water and sewage to use your own water-recycling system, whereas in a city in Pakistan there may be no regulatory oversight.
  3. b) Describe two key similarities among your chosen comparison communities (including your own). For example, in both California and Pakistan, finding skilled labor and the right equipment for an in-home gray water recycling system might be difficult

 

  1. Conclusion
  2. a) Summarize the use of natural resources and environmental impacts relevant to your selected topic.
  3. b) Describe what skills and resources are required to address this topic. c) Reflect on how your knowledge of the topic has changed over the course of your research, ensuring that you address instructor feedback.

Final Submission: Final Paper you will submit your final paper.

Include an introduction outlining the topic and what the reader can expect within each of the three sections. The paper should consist of the introduction, the three sections of research you conducted over the course of the term, and a conclusion, which will be a reflective analysis of what you learned from the research you conducted. The final project should be cohesive and polished. This submission will be graded using the Final Product Rubric.
