Able to  fluently move between main and subtabs 
With a sense of how each binder can help you succeed

3- Prepare a three-minute presentation that answers these questions to the best of your ability. You may use any app of your choice, make a video or podcast. Your answers are a starting point and are not expected to be exhaustive. Due on the first day of class. 

  1. What are my duties as a global and local citizen and how can familiarity with place help me to fulfill my duties?

  2. Why are cities like Providence, presently and in the future, a perfect lab for studying our greatest successes and failings as human beings?
