Part Two: Short Answer: Similarities and Differences
Overview: (The chosen topic is Voting Rights)
In this assignment, you will evaluate similarities and differences in your topic as analyzed through the two lenses you have selected, and you will describe the view you get when looking at your topic through both lenses together. Finally, you will consider how this type of research process can be beneficial.
For instance, when we look at space exploration through the lenses of history and social science, we notice that both lenses deal with how people react to the topic. A difference might be that a history perspective would look to past events to understand how space exploration has progressed, whereas a social science perspective might concentrate on the current lives of astronauts in space.
In this assignment, you will describe the view you get when looking at your topic through the two lenses you’ve selected for your project.
Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:
1. Describe the two lenses you have selected for your analysis.
2. Compare the two lenses in relation to your topic. What are the similarities?
3. Explain how the two lenses contrast with each other in relation to your topic. What are the differences?
4. Reflect on the benefits of the research process. Consider the following:
· What have you gained by looking at your topic through the lenses so far?
· What might be some of the benefits of further research?
