EM SC 240N
Energy and Sustainability in Contemporary Culture

Summary and Final Tasks



I assume by now you've read the entire book. It is an interesting read and hopefully sparked some critical thinking. You should be able to do the following after completing the Lesson 9 activities:

  • recall key facts/themes from the reading;
  • critically analyze claims made in the book; and
  • analyze the evolution of your own thinking with regards to key energy and sustainability issues related to the book.

Reminder - Complete all of the lesson tasks!

Check the list of requirements on the first page of this lesson and the syllabus to make sure you have completed all of the activities listed before the due date. Once you've ensured that you've completed everything, you are welcome to move forward with Lesson 9.

Complete all activities in Lesson 8, located under the Modules tab. The quiz may include a variety of question types, such as multiple choice, multiple select, ordering, matching, true/false. Be sure to read each question carefully. This quiz is meant to make sure that you have an understanding of the core concepts from Lessons 3, 4, and 5, and have read the book and paid attention while doing so. The questions should not take a lot of thought, as long as you know the material and paid attention while reading the book. I strongly suggest having the course content and book available while you are taking the quiz.

For any other assignments (e.g., journal or discussion board), it will be helpful to look at the rubric before answering. Be sure to answer ALL elements that you are asked to do.

These activities are to be done individually and are to represent YOUR OWN WORK. (See Academic Integrity and Research Ethics for a full description of the College's policy related to Academic Integrity and penalties for violation.)

The quiz is timed - you get exactly 60 minutes to complete it once you begin. Journal entries are not timed but do close at 11:59 pm EST on the due date as shown on the Course Calendar.

If you have questions about the assignment, please post them to the "HAVE A QUESTION?" Discussion Forum. I am happy to provide clarification and guidance to help you understand the material and questions. Of course, it is best to ask early.
