Module Two Activity Guidelines and Rubric.html
IDS 400 Module Two Activity Guidelines and Rubric
Overview
For your project, you will examine a specific topic, such as an issue or event in diversity, and how it impacts individuals and society. You will demonstrate your ability to think critically, investigate, and communicate clearly. Diversity influences society, and society influences diversity, creating a feedback loop between them. You will critically analyze a feedback loop in this project through social, historical, and theoretical approaches to diversity as well as the four general education lenses: history, humanities, natural and applied sciences, and social science.
For this assignment, you will select the topic you will be working on and begin to collect the required elements for your analysis. This assignment requires you to gather reliable evidence from varied sources and use them to introduce your topic effectively. All these elements will prepare you to complete the project, where you will need to use evidence to support your points.
Directions
Review the module resources and the instructor feedback you received on the previous activity. Then, visit the IDS 400 Library Guide for guidance on how to select and narrow a topic. You may use the topic that you worked with in the previous module or choose something different now that you have reflected further. Do some preliminary research on your topic to make sure you can address each of the required elements. Please remember that you will not be able to change your topic after the end of this module. You should begin to gather the sources you will integrate into your project, which must include two resources from course materials and two resources from the library.
You are not required to answer each question below the rubric criteria but may use them to better understand the criteria and guide your thinking.
Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:
Integrate reliable evidence from varied sources throughout your paper to support your analysis.
It is important to draw from a more diverse pool of perspectives from varied sources to support the analysis. This is different from the Citations and Attributions rubric criterion.
Reliable evidence from varied sources should be interwoven throughout the paper itself, while citing and attributing sources will be represented as APA in-text citations and a reference list at the end of your work.
You will be evaluated on both criteria.

Describe your topic with effective details and contextual information.
What main points should you include about your topic? What other details are needed to ensure a thorough description?

Describe a population significant to your topic. Include information such as demographics, cultural practices, social identity, and key challenges.
Examples could include a population who is directly impacted by the topic, a group that works with those directly impacted, or a group that has strong feelings about the topic.

Articulate how the topic has shaped the lives and experiences of your chosen population.
What stories clearly illustrate how the topic has impacted the lives and experiences of your chosen population?

Explain your choice of one general education interdisciplinary lens for analyzing your topic.
What made you choose one lens over the others? Was it an easy decision? Why or why not?

Construct a thesis statement that combines your topic, population, cultural situation, and choice of general education interdisciplinary lens.
Your thesis statement should clearly and concisely state the relationships between your topic, population, cultural situation, and lens. It acts as a hypothesis proposing how these elements will work together during your critical analysis.

What to Submit
Submit your short paper as a 1- to 2-page Microsoft Word document with double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, and one-inch margins. Sources should be cited according to APA style. Consult the Shapiro Library APA Style Guide for more information on citations.
