6-2 Activity: Reflection: Society

In this activity, you will have the opportunity to examine how using critical analysis tools influences your interactions with others and your understanding of the role of diversity in society.

In this activity, you will have the opportunity to examine how using critical analysis tools influences your interactions with others and your understanding of the role of diversity in society. You will also consider how the analysis of your topic might have turned out differently if
you looked at it through a different lens. Completing this activity will result in a draft of the reflection section of your project. It also
provides an opportunity to obtain valuable feedback from your instructor that you can incorporate into your project submission.

Directions:

In this activity, you will work on the second part of the reflection section of your project. You should consider the feedback from your
instructor on the previous activity and use your responses to inform this assignment. Include diverse perspectives from varied sources to support your points. Look to the SNHU Shapiro Library for assistance and consider the sources you have used thus far to support the
critical analysis of your topic. First, you will explain how the analysis of your topic in diversity may have been different if you had used one of the other general education lenses. Next, you will explain how critically analyzing diversity positively affects your interactions with
people. Finally, you will describe how this course has impacted your understanding of the role of diversity in society.

Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:

  1. 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.
  2. Explain at least one way in which your analysis might have been different if you had used one of the other general education lenses to
    analyze your topic.
    This should be a brief (3–5 sentences) reflection about how using the language and perspective from a different
    lens would shift your view of your topic.
  3. Explain how critically analyzing diversity adds value to interactions with people in a variety of contexts.
    Think about ways in which
    individual conversations are strengthened by a greater awareness of diversity. Consider including an example from your life.
  4. Describe how this course has helped you understand the role of diversity in society.
    Consider how having a better understanding of
    concepts such as bias, intersectionality, culture, and identity contributes to your perceptions of diversity in society. Also, how might
    your critical analysis skills impact how you approach topics of diversity?
