Mon 2/26 – Midterm Status

Course Goals

The JMU General Education Council has set course goals for the new 300-level UNST classes, and they are as follows:

  1. Demonstrate advanced information literacy skills
  2. Communicate using both written and performance formats
  3. Engage with complex questions to achieve identified goals
  4. Apply multiple disciplinary perspectives to a contemporary problem

Discuss with your group: Which of these goals do you feel are being satisfied by this course and your project, and how? Which are not? Then let’s talk for a bit.
