For this class, we have more specified requirements. You must:
-upload your completed Scorecard as a single.doc or .docx formatted document into Blackboard.
-complete all reflections as Written Reflections where applicable. They must be 200 words and they must be thoughtfully written (see section on Reflections below).
Completing these items will result in earning 55 (or more) Scorecard points. You are welcome to earn more than 55 points. Points of 100 or more are eligible for the Civic Action Award through the Institute for Civic Engagement & Democracy (iCED). For this class, we will translate Scorecard points directly into class points.
Be a good human being whilst completing Scorecard items. Just be cool. Be real. Represent yourself, your family, your diaspora, and MDC with pride. It never looks good when you look bad.
Write meaningfully. In this exercise, meaningful reflections empirically tie your personal experiences to broader social issues. Think about what you do, think, and feel before, during, and after completing the Scorecard item. Explicitly address each of the following four questions in all of your written reflections:
1. -Which of the UN Sustainable Development Goals does this civic action address?
2. -Explicitly explain how the action you completed specifically addresses the UN Sustainable Development Goal(s).
3. -How has your engagement in this activity altered your perception or consciousness about this issue? What will you do differently in the future as a result?
4. -Explicitly explain how the action you completed is connected to course content in this course.
