First, review the overviews and resources in Modules One through Three, as well as the Four Lenses document from Module One. Next, analyze your artifact through the lens of history, and address the following: 

  •   How does this artifact interact with the history lens and impact social issues?
     
  •   In what ways does the history lens help articulate a deeper understanding of the social/historical issue(s)/event(s) that inform your artifact?
    Next, analyze your popular culture artifact through the lens of the humanities by exploring the following questions:
     
  •   How does your artifact creatively portray or reflect today’s society?
     
  • Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:
     
  • I. Lens Analysis: In this section of your assignment, you will analyze your popular culture artifact through two of the four general education lenses.
    A . A nalyze your artifact through the lens of history for determining its impact on various institutions. Utilize evidence from research to support your
    analysis.
    B. Analyze your artifact through the lens of humanities for determining its impact on various institutions. Utilize evidence from research to support
    your analysis. 

Guidelines for Submission: Milestone Two should be submitted as two papers in a single Word document. The entire submission should be 2 to 4
pages in length. Use double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, and one-inch margins. Support your responses with at least two sources for each lens from the assigned course resources or other scholarly sources located independently via the Shapiro Library. Cite your supporting sources in APA style. 

IDS 404 Milestone Two Guidelines and Rubric

Analyzing a Popular Culture Artifact Through the Lenses of History and the Humanities

Overview: For the first part of your final project, the critical analysis portfolio, you will select an artifact from popular culture and critically analyze it through the
four general education lenses: history, humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences. By viewing the artifact through these lenses, you will gain insight into how
the mediated nature of popular culture affects society as well as both your own individual framework of perception and the choices, attitudes, and behaviors of
others in the world around you.

For this second milestone, due in Module Four, you will analyze your popular culture artifact through the history and humanities lenses. This will provide you with a
chance to practice analyzing your artifact through these lenses and receive feedback on this practice attempt.

Prompt: First, review the overviews and resources in Modules One through Three, as well as the Four Lenses document from Module One.

Next, analyze your artifact through the lens of history, and address the following:

 How does this artifact interact with the history lens and impact social issues?

 In what ways does the history lens help articulate a deeper understanding of the social/historical issue(s)/event(s) that inform your artifact?

Next, analyze your popular culture artifact through the lens of the humanities by exploring the following questions:

 How does your artifact creatively portray or reflect today’s society?

 How does this artifact interact with you in your personal and professional lives?

Note: You are completing two separate analyses: one from history and one from the humanities. You must submit two papers in a single Word document.

Be sure to use evidence from research to support your analysis. Refer to course resources, the LibGuide for this course, and any other pertinent resources to
support your responses. Relevant current new sources may be used with instructor approval. Incorporate instructor feedback into your final project.

Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:

I. Lens Analysis: In this section of your assignment, you will analyze your popular culture artifact through two of the four general education lenses.
A . A nalyze your artifact through the lens of history for determining its impact on various institutions. Utilize evidence from research to support your

analysis.
B. Analyze your artifact through the lens of humanities for determining its impact on various institutions. Utilize evidence from research to support

your analysis.
