DUE DATE: SATURDAY, JULY 2nd at 11:59 PM [-1 point per day late] This post serves multiple purposes: 1) To connect our previous Cultural Geography and Political Geography units; 2) To get you to think critically about political elections and events; and, more importantly, 3) To ask you to reflect back on one of the initial concepts discussed in this course -- how your experiences are influenced by location. PROMPT: Compare your current political/social/cultural views with the views of the general population who live in your hometown (or the general area where you grew up or spent a majority of your time). Are your current views the same or are they different from the general population of your home area? How and why do you think your views are different or the same? ***When responding, you do not have to tell us what your political views or affiliations are -- I simply want you to discuss how and why your views are or are not the same as where you grew up. (Think about how our experiences are affected by location...) Before responding, please read the following articles: Why politics follows geography (Washington Post) How Geography Shaped American History, Law and Politics (National Geographic) ***If you would like something extra to consider while writing your post, visit "IDRLabs - Political Coordinates Test" or "The Political Compass ," -- both are free online tests to assess your political ideology (it goes into more than just "Left" or "Right"). This is optional, but you might find it interesting or maybe tell you a little more about yourself. The key is to answer the questions honestly based on your individual views. Once you answer all of the questions and complete the test, the final output will give you an explanation of the "compass" directions and show you where you fall on the "political compass". Again, just an extra step for fun if you are interested. *** Remember, in addition to your own post, you are required to respond to at least three of your peers' posts. Please respectful in your responses and provide meaningful feedback and comments. Please view the grading rubric to see more details on how you will be graded. If you have questions, please ask.
