Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses.
This week, you will gather information on the economic organization of your two chosen cultures. The list of cultures, including resources, can be accessed through the Library Resource Guide. Discuss their mode of subsistence (is it an industrialized, horticultural, hunter-gather, or agricultural society), what the different sectors of the economy are, and then discuss how the two cultures differ and/or are similar in terms of economic structure. You should also discuss whether or not the cultures are affected by globalization and neoliberalism, and if they are, in what way.
Part of your Final Project will be submitted using YouSeeU. To familiarize yourself with this software, you will submit your initial post as a link to a YouSeeU recording. To learn how to use YouSeeU, click on the YouSeeU User Guide. Provide one to two slides and two to four minutes of narration. This is an opportunity to experiment with the software, with slides and oral presentation, so that you become confident before submitting your Final Project.

Guided Response: Respond to at least two peers. Ask one question about their chosen culture that you would like to know more about. Try to politely and constructively address it if a peer has not fully embraced a concept or has somewhat misunderstood it. For your peer responses, you will respond within the discussion forum. You will not use YouSeeU for peer responses.
Carefully review the Discussion Forum
