The Search Story – What you already knew, what you wanted to learn, and how you went about learning it. For our purposes, this should include the following:
Engage the reader’s attention and interest; explain why learning more about this place was personally important for you—i.e., why was this one of the places that you chose to study for this course?
In our case, this means retracing the highlights of what you did for each of the first three assignments, but it can also include what you learned from the textbook readings and class sessions that could be applied to your place of study. Discuss things that went well and things that were challenging.
Search Results – What you learned
Summarize at least 3 specific examples of the things that you learned about the global sustainability of this place that either addressed one of the topics you wanted/hoped to learn or that you simply found most interesting or important to share with others.
Give support for each of these examples by citing at least one piece of information regarding it that you included in one of the previous assignments (e.g., a fact, figure, picture, graph, etc.).
In addition, you should include ONE (and only one) image to represent/illustrate each of these examples (i.e., you should include a total of 3 images). These images may be a photograph, map, or graph.
Search Reflections (i.e., “How this learning is significant to you personally, why you think it might be significant to others, and what you would still like to learn about it”)
Discuss how/why what you learned from your research experience is significant to you, personally, and why you think it might be important for others to know. In particular, how does your learning connect with one (or more) of the Core Learning Outcomes for this course or perhaps even to one of the major outcomes for LE courses (see the syllabus)?
Evaluate how the information you have gathered for these assignments has changed your original perceptions of the global sustainability of this place, in particular, and the Earth as a whole.
