Example of Project attached, here: BEApplied Final Project - Compare&Contrast Example 1 (1).docx
- Compare/contrast at least 2 (two) current events in disability, selected by you, from either our Current Events discussion conference or a reliable news source, applying what you have learned about disability history and rights in this course.
The goal of this assignment is to show how your new knowledge of disability rights and history in American has changed your perception. You will demonstrate this through your analysis of the two current events. I will be looking for history behind the ADA and ADAA, the concepts of Universal Design and Inclusive Education, or multicultural analysis of disability rights as a civil rights movement, for example.
Please be certain that your two current events are from within the last year. Please include links in Proposal for my review. Also, in order to compare/contrast two current events, you will need to identify both their similarities AND differences, include information from chapters below, which can include the perspective of the author, the outcome of the event, or the perspective of the PWDs involved or the broader disability community, as represented by the texts, for example.
