Summary and Final Tasks



Now that you've gone through Lesson 1 and completed the associated activities, you should be able to discuss the basic concepts of place, scale, structure, and agency. After completing the assignments for this lesson, you should now also better understand how places in the world (i.e., your hometown) are both unique and interconnected. Furthermore, current events (happening in your hometown and elsewhere) are not territorially isolated events, but occur within an interconnected set of scales. Lastly, you should be able to discuss how these current events are performed by geopolitical agents, as well as how the actions of these agents happen within various interconnected and overlapping structures. And, of course, you should be able to articulate the multiple forms of power that underlie geopolitics.
