Write a 300-500 word discussion: (Yes I will count your words)
Discuss the physical setting and processes of your international beach location and how it compares to what we discussed about California. Where does the sand come from? How does the sand move on the beaches?
Discuss the lenses that may be used to show the "value" of this beach. Think about what is important to the people and critters in these areas. Start thinking about the threats to the beaches in your area. We will get into more detail in the coming weeks. For now, what are the big picture lenses and threats you see? Be sure to refer to and cite this weeks topics, readings and lectures in your discussion.
The discussion should be well written (edited for grammar and spelling) with a clear beginning, middle, and end.
You must add references where needed (parenthetical references with properly cited literature) Citation resources if you state something that is not common knowledge. Remember, discussions are 40% of your grade. Your discussions should be thoughtful reflections demonstrating that you can take what you are learning in class and with research and critical thought apply it to your beach location.
