- a blog (roughly 500 words) on any topic related to the themes of the course;
- a map, graph, pinterest site, or other visual representation of some element of one of our readings or class discussions;
- participation in citizen science or public forum or social outreach project related to the content of the course (documented via a short, roughly 500 word description);
- attendance at a lecture or exhibition or event on or off campus related to one of the course topics, which you provide a short (roughly 500 words) summary of.
