In each module, specific Learning Objectives were provided in the Modules-at-a-Glance. Using these as guideposts, please summarize the major themes covered in the virtual forums. Begin with a short one-paragraph introduction, then for each of the first three DBs, write a single paragraph that explains the major issues covered in the forum. High scores will require students to specifically reference their peers’ work and the assigned readings (e.g., “In DB-2, John S. argued that …”; According to Martin, …”; “In my main assignment, I stated that…”). In the context of “Lessons Learned,” you will also need to include an additional paragraph covering THREE (3) points which you feel added to your understanding of the impact of globalization on contemporary society. Choose those themes you felt to be noteworthy, enlightening, interesting, or controversial. Lastly, you should then provide a conclusion which discusses how the textbook, lectures, and any other assigned readings/documents/images supported your learning outcomes. Your submission should be between 1,000 and 1,500 words.
