For the past few weeks you’ve been focusing on “fine scholarship”. This has included research (focusing on high quality sources), discussions (in-class and online), writing and revising to produce a formal essay that articulates what you have discovered so far.
This week I’d like us to focus on “intellectual citizenship.” This can be defined and actualized in many different ways. Here, I mean what are you doing now (or in the recent past) that exemplifies your participation in the local community that makes us–or people in other countries–better? How are you using what you have learned to make positive differences for others?
For this online discussion, answer the above questions to describe how you are exercising your “intellectual citizenship” for TVS, for Fort Worth, or for other communities. This can refer to conscientious consumerism, volunteerism, random acts of charity/kindness, recycling/reducing/reusing, etc.
I look forward to learning more about your good deeds!
