Carefully read the following instructions for every component of this assignment. Remember there are two parts to this assignment.
Part 1 – Individual Assignment

In a few sentences, provide a brief summary of the article (the key points, particularly those that you find relevant to the week’s content).
Describe how the article is related to the week’s content.
Describe what new conclusions, insights, or understanding you have about the article after considering it within the context of what we learned this week.
