IDS 401 Milestone One Guidelines and Rubric
Critical Analysis Portfolio and Presentation Proposal

Overview
For the first part of your final project, the critical analysis portfolio, you will select an issue or event in globalization and critically analyze it through the four
general education lenses: history, humanities, social sciences, and natural and applied sciences. By viewing the issue/event through these lenses, you will gain
insight into how the interconnected nature of globalization affects society as well as both your own individual framework of perception and the choices,
attitudes, and behaviors of others in the world around you.

For this first milestone, due in Module Two, you will select an issue or event to analyze through the four general education lenses. You will explain the issue or
event and its relationship to globalization as well as describe its connection to all four lenses.

Prompt: First, review the module resources you have so far encountered as well as your work in Module One. In addition, it is suggested that you visit the IDS
401 LibGuide for guidance on how to select a topic. Select one issue or event in globalization and write a 2- to 3-page paper that addresses how this
issue/event fits into the framework of global society and then addresses how each lens influences perceptions and attitudes toward the issue/event,
globalization, and society. The paper should outline each lens’s impact and framing of the issue or event. Be sure to provide a working thesis statement and
clear definitions for your key terms.

Specifically, you must address the critical elements listed below.

I. Introduction: You will compile a series of critical analyses of a single event or issue in globalization through the four general education lenses: history,
humanities, natural and applied sciences, and social sciences.

A. Topic: Using the four lenses, explain how an issue or event within globalization has or has not influenced modern society.
II. Lens Connections: In this section of your assignment, you will describe the connections between your issue or event and each of the four general

education lenses.
A. What is the connection of your issue or event to the lens of history for determining its impact on various institutions? Utilize evidence

from theory and research to support your analysis.
B. What is the connection of your issue or event to the lens of the humanities? Utilize evidence from theory and research to support your

analysis.

C. What is the connection of your issue or event to the lens of the natural and applied sciences for determining its impact on various
institutions? Utilize evidence from theory and research to support your analysis.

D. What is the connection of your issue or event to the lens of the social sciences for determining its impact on various institutions? Utilize
evidence from theory and research to support your analysis.

Be sure to begin the research process early and use evidence from your research to support your responses. Refer to course resources, the LibGuide for
this class, as well as any other pertinent resources to support your responses. Although at least two sources are required for each lens, note that you
may use the same source for more than one lens if applicable. Relevant current news sources may be used with instructor approval. Incorporate
instructor feedback into your final project.

Milestone Rubric
Guidelines for Submission: Final Project Milestone One should be submitted as a Word document, 2 to 3 pages in length, double-spaced, using 12-point Times
New Roman font, with one-inch margins. Begin building your works cited list for the final project, which requires you to support your responses with at least two
sources for each lens from the assigned course resources and/or other scholarly sources located independently via the Shapiro Library. Note that you may use
the same source for more than one lens if applicable. Cite your supporting sources in APA style.

Please note that the grading rubric for this milestone submission is not identical to that of the final project. The Final Project Part One Rubric will include an
additional “Exemplary” category that provides guidance as to how you can go above and beyond “Proficient” in your final submission, as well as additional
elements to address.
