please read the details carefully and provide all details. provide the work reference in MLA format at the end and please avoid any plagiarism. for the discussion paper you will need my first and second papers (all attached), and one of my classmate art discussion work (attached) to build up this discussion art paper (1200 words at least). second part is comments part, I will provide you two of my classmate work and for each one just make a comment of (400 words at least).

For this second Contextual Analysis Discussion, you should make at least one original contextual analysis post and two comments to other posts for each module. Posts should be in full, grammatically correct sentences that create at least one solid response of at least 1200 words–make sure you include a word count. The word count does NOT include any headers or references section. All posts must be relevant to the assigned materials (although you may build upon previous knowledge from earlier weeks and include personal observations). Start by answering the prompt, and then build upon the prompt to consider your own perspectives and experiences. You MUST attach photos and web links to support your position. An important part of your grade for this assignment is to communicate with your classmates. Because this is intended to be your opportunity to discuss topics with your classmates, the professor/TA will generally refrain from commenting or actively participating in the discussions aside from reading and grading them.

Each of the two comments should be at least 400 words (include a word count) on two different classmates’ posts each module to receive full credit.

Posts: For this post, select one work of art (cinema, theatre, or dance) that has NOT been already analyzed or extensively discussed in the course readings or videos…part of the fun in learning about art is in DISCOVERING it! You are required to make one post to conduct both a formal and contextual analysis or your chosen work. Then, you will compare it to the work you selected in Module 1, the work you selected in Module 2, AND to any other work in Module 1 or Module 2 that was analyzed by another student in this class. This will give you FOUR works to discuss in this assignment:

  • One work of art you select from the mediums we discussed in this module (cinema, theatre, or dance) in which you conduct a formal and contextual analysis with social angles.
  • You then compare the work you chose in this module (cinema, theatre, or dance) with the work you chose in module 1 (two-dimensional art or three-dimensional art). This comparison will be a brief compare/contrast/ways of seeing between the two works.
  • Next, compare the work you chose in this module (cinema, theatre, or dance) with the work you chose in module 2 (architecture, literature, or music). This comparison will be a brief compare/contrast/ways of seeing between the two works.
  • Last, you compare the work you chose in this module to any other work analyzed in module 1 or 2 by a peer. Again, this comparison will be a brief compare/contrast/ways of seeing between the two works.

This process expands your skills of doing a contextual analysis by comparing works to each other.

In a narrative format, the post should contain the following elements:

  • Define and Identify: Brief information about the artist and work. For example, birth/death dates, place of birth or work, where work is displayed, name of work, medium of work, context for creation of work.
  • Experience and Appreciation: For example, where you found the work (website, another book, museum), what made you select the work, what about this work speaks to you.
  • Observe and Analyze: Use and underline three terms that were introduced in the module to observe/analyze your chosen work. Add any other relevant information to improve your paper.
  • Critique and Compare: Compare your work to the selections from Modules 1 and 2 and a peer’s. Consider the impact of the work on a particular social angle and/or the evolution of the media. Consider the impact of experiencing the work on your general outlook on the medium or appreciation of art.
  • Apply Social Angles AND Context: Identify at least one social angle from the list below that can be observed or analyzed as part of the work. Address how the social angle is connected to the work. Plus, a thorough contextual analysis of the historical, cultural, and social implications should be discussed.
    • race and ethnicity,
    • gender and sexuality,
    • class and highbrow/low,
    • colonialism, postcolonialism, place and regionalism,
    • nature (environment, ecology) and culture,
    • memory, history, generational identity,
    • food culture, and
    • body and mind

Students will be expected to define, identify, and apply at least three terms (underline them so I can quickly find them) from the module in the post. Make sure to underline the terms so that I can quickly identify them. College-level writing and mechanics are expected; however, the purpose of this assignment is to move from experiencing art to analyzing art to evaluating art. Make sure to include a references section at the end of every post, even if you only cite the lecture video. All in-text citations and references should be in MLA.

Comments: For each of the two comments, select a classmate’s post, read the post, critique the post, indicate your reaction to the chosen work, discuss a comparison work from the module or any other outside source that is similar to the work identified in the post, and either add personal commentary or pose a question to stimulate conversation.

Discussion Board Grading: (Note: while the total number of points you can earn is the same in all contextual analysis discussion assignments for this class, the percentage weight of each assignment towards your final grade increases.)

Original Posts—30 points possible per module: Student has actively connected with the materials and has made a thoughtful and engaging post that considers multiple perspectives in relation to the readings and videos. Correct grammar, spelling, and sentence structure are utilized, as well as direct references to the course materials and an image of the selected work. It is crucial that you cite or reference some material from the class at least once during each original post to earn full credit. Minimum of 1200 words per original post. Indicate your word count at the end of your post (example: “Word Count: 553”).

Comments—20 points possible per module (10 points per comment): Student stimulates the conversation and has made a thoughtful comment that is directly related to the original post. Correct grammar, spelling, and sentence structure are utilized, as well as direct references to the course materials. Minimum of 400 words per comment. Indicate your word count at the end of your post (example: “Word Count: 283”)

Overview

Regardless of where in the world you are working or who you are working with, developing a comprehensive understanding of the clients, organizations, manufactures, businesses, and industry leaders that you work with is key to your professional success.

In the “Self Assessment 1” assignment you completed, you considered how culture impacts your perspectives, expectations, interpretations, and world views. In this assignment, you will conduct research about your assigned client to develop a comprehensive understanding of your client, including their background, interests, goals, professional and corporate culture, and, as applicable, their philanthropy.

Businesses are often conceptualized as one-dimensional entities who operate based on the single goal of making as much money as possible. While ensuring that a business is profitable is obviously necessary, businesses, like the people who run them, have varied interests and perspectives, as well as different beliefs about what is valuable or what expenses are worthwhile. For example, through their Innovative Learning program, Verizon (Links to an external site.) has recently begun working with Title 1 schools to integrate technology throughout the schools and disseminate devices to the students. Additionally, they are building high tech STEM labs in middle schools (and are soon expanding to high schools), and have worked with ASU to help develop appropriate STEM curricula and implement teacher training. In addition to accessibility and education, Verizon also has sustainability goals (Links to an external site.), goals for human prosperity (see their Reskilling and Upskilling (Links to an external site.) and Employee Volunteers (Links to an external site.) pages), and offers a variety of grants (Links to an external site.).

Similarly, your prospective clients understand themselves as fitting in with and being part of the communities they exist in in some way. As a professional, you must develop a comprehensive understanding of your clients’ values, perspectives, and needs in order to develop solutions that help them achieve their goals.

Purpose

To develop a comprehensive understanding of your client, including:

Your client’s history

Your client’s values

Your client’s goals

Your client’s needs

Your client’s goals and objectives

Your client’s cultural perspective

Your client’s identity, including:

how they describe their organizational identity

how they are perceived within the community

how their actions/policies/etc. support their projected and perceived identities

How your client is embedded in their community, including:

how they understand their role within the larger community

how community members understand their role within the larger community

how your client actually functions as part of the larger community, as evidenced by past, current, and future projects, etc.

As well as to develop audience centered communication competencies, including:

  • Audience appropriate openings and closings in emails
  • Clear, complete, and targeted messages
  • Understanding what the specific audience you are addressing needs or wants from you
  • Thinking about your message from the perspective of your specific audience
  • Organizing information and/or messages so it is easy for your specific audience to follow and understand your message
  • Using standard formatting to make your message clear, organized, easy to read, and professional in appearance
  • Objectives

Through the analysis of an assigned client, this assignment develops a foundation for achieving the following GenEd Human and Cultural Diversity assessment objective:

  • SLO1: Demonstrate the ability to see issues from the perspective(s) of other groups/cultures by describing the values and communication styles found in groups different from one’s own and the way in which those differences can affect styles of verbal and nonverbal communication.
  • Satisfactory: 1) Student demonstrates adequate understanding of the complexity of elements important to members of another group/culture. 2) Student recognizes and participates in cultural differences in communication and begins to negotiate a shared understanding based on those differences
  • Exceeds Expectations: 1) Student demonstrates sophisticated understanding of the complexity of elements important to members of another culture. 2) Student articulates a deep understanding of group/cultural differences and is able to skillfully negotiate a shared understanding based on those differences.
  • Assignment Overview and Prompt

For this assignment, you will respond to a prompt, which is presented as an email from your project manager, Maya Harris. As such, you will respond to the prompt as though you are responding to an email.

  • Because you are responding to an email from your project manager Maya Harris, it is important that you write your response as though you are actually responding to your project manager
  • PROMPT
  • Client Acquisition

Maya Harris <mayaharris@engineeringsolutions.com>
Tuesday, 6/8/2021 8:13 AM
To: You <you@engineeringsolutions.com>

Good Morning,

I hope you had a restful weekend and got a chance to enjoy the beautiful weather.

  • As I explained in the project review meeting last week, I want to acquire [your assigned client’s name]. As you know I’m interested in pursuing some new sustainability projects, and [your assigned client’s name] has expressed interest in moving in that direction. But we’ll need to come up with something innovative and inspiring to get their attention.
  • To get us started, each of the members of your team are going to do research and analysis on this client to figure out where they’re coming from, where they want to be, and where they see themselves in the future. Then, we will show them that we can help them achieve their vision of the future.
  • Get me a report on [your assigned client’s name] by next week. I want to know them by the time I’m done reading, and I want you living and breathing them by the time you’re done with your report.
  • I also want you to look into some of the sustainability accomplishments of similar entities, both domestic and abroad. This is going to help inspire us as we think through what we can do for our target client, and it will also help our target client get a look at the bigger picture. In your report, include 1) a domestic example of an entity that is very similar to our target client (same field obviously, but also similar in size, scope, issues they’re facing, etc.) who has completed or has nearly completed one or more significant sustainability projects, and 2) an international example of a similar entity (again, same field, as well as similar size, scope, etc.) who has completed or has nearly completed one or more significant sustainability projects. For both the domestic and international comparisons, make sure you include a brief background, quick comparison to our target client, and a few bullet points describing each sustainability project, costs, goals, and any reported impacts. This part of the report needs to really demonstrate the global reach of the kind of sustainability-based project we are seeking to develop.
  • I’m putting everyone on this individually because all of you need to know this client inside and out, and some of you will find things that others might miss. Plus, some of you will be more thorough than others and I want to know who those people are.
  • Looking forward to your reports.

Things to Consider

Audience Centered Communication

Because the primary audience for your report is your project manager, Maya Harris, you must consider her expectations, preferences, communication style, requests, and perspective as you complete your report. Below are some things that you know about your boss:

  • What you know about Maya Harris:

The youngest of 4 children, Maya Harris lived in New Zealand until she was 15. At 15, her parents (from Ghana and Norway), both doctors who worked with Doctors Without Borders, accepted teaching positions at Stanford University in California.

  • Maya holds a BS in Chemistry and Soil Science (California Polytechnic State University), and a MA and Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering (UC Berkeley).

Maya Harris has worked for: The DOD; Caltrans; General Motors; and Equipoise Corporation.

  • As a project manager, Maya Harris concurrently oversees 1-7 projects at a time, depending on project scope and client profile. The firm entrusts Harris with many of its most important projects.

Harris boasts a portfolio full of large, high profile projects and highly sought after clients. She is well known for her organization, thoroughness, creative thinking, and leadership.

She expects high quality, innovative, thoughtful, and thorough work from her teams.

She is always on the lookout for excellent team members, and has a knack for building symbiotic teams, improving her teams’ and firm’s competitive edge and rates of success.

Harris expects team members to be resourceful, reliable, and collaborative. 

Getting Answers to Your Questions

In professional instances like this, your superiors are likely to assume that you have knowledge that you may not actually have. For example, what information is she expecting in the report? How should it be formatted? What citation style should you use? Often times, co-workers or office administrators are great resources for answers to these kinds of questions, and many companies have specific format guidelines for various document types. But sometimes you’ll need to use your best judgement, and you must always take your specific audience into account to make your work shine.

In this case, we will assume that you’re new to the company, and aren’t really sure what to do. Thankfully, you have a friend who works for the same company, so you ask them for guidance. This is what they tell you:

Citation Style: The firm you work for, Engineering Solutions, uses IEEE citation style (Links to an external site.)  (as you suspected!)

Cite. Your. Sources. Even though you are expected to use your own words in this report, you must provide in-text citations for your information sources. All of your future bosses, clients, etc. don’t just want to know that you’ve done your research, they want to know where you got your information, and in many cases they’ll want to take a closer look at the information you have shared with them. So tell them where you got your information and data throughout the entire report.

In addition to including all of your references at the end, you must provide in-text citations throughout your report. Yes, you’re using your own words, but the main point of citing sources is to show where you got your information and ideas.

What to Include: Client research reports must always include:

Background and history of your potential client 

In addition to providing valuable information for your company, your team must demonstrate a knowledge and understanding of your potential client that shows the client that you are invested in them, not just the money you’ll make if you win the bid. Review the sample proposal provided to you to see what this looks like in practice.

Information about the specific area where you plan to implement your project idea, including a history of the area, relevant population and demographic information, and information about the physical attributes of the area 

Your project location will most likely be in the Tampa or Saint Petersburg area (although you are not limited to these areas). Your Project Location Information section will include a history of the area as well as demographic information about the population, and the physical attributes of the area, including information about elevation, soil and drainage, flood information, weather patters, days of sun, etc.

Client values and/or goals, as publicly stated via mission statements/”About” info on websites, as well as via any relevant news articles

Instances of the client taking actions or implementing policies that support their value claims, such as a company who claims to have/support strong family values who also offers 12 months paid maternity leave to employees 

List of 3-4 recently completed, current/ongoing, and planned projects with a 3-5 sentence summary about each project, listed in descending order of recency

However, different project managers will want some additional info, too, and Maya Harris is well known for her thoroughness, organization, and planning. This means you’ll need to include the additional information that she specifically requested in her email.

Document Formatting: Concerning report formatting…. well, when your friend started explaining it to you your eyes glazed over, so they emailed you this empty shell document Download this empty shell documentthat has the general format they usually use laid out for you. Your friend even included some general directions for what you must include in each section!

But remember, you’ll need to add headings and subheadings for the additional information that your boss asked for in her email.

You can also change the style as you see fit, create a different cover page, etc.

Content Expectations: As a competent engineer, employee, and team member, you are expected provide a clear, well organized, and thoughtful report of your research. In other words, you are expected to conduct research about your client and, in your own words, summarize your research for your boss via this report. 

It is extremely unlikely that you will ever be asked to generate a report with the expectation that you’ll copy and paste the results of your Google search into a document, stamp your name on it, and call it a report. That kind of careless and lazy “work” is likely to be poorly received, and could be grounds for reprimand or even termination, depending on factors such as plagiarism.

You are expected to keep direct quotes to a minimum. Only use direct quotes when necessary, or if you are including the specific wording of a policy, slogan, goal, etc. and it is important to keep the exact wording used by the source.

*QUESTION PENALTY OVERVIEW*

This assignment has two overarching purposes:

to develop a comprehensive understanding of your client

and to develop audience centered communication competency.

As such, you are expected to carefully and thoughtfully consider all aspects of this assignment based on your understanding of your boss’s perspective and expectations (your boss is Maya Harris).

In order to aid your independent thought and communication competency development, teams’ average score totals (the total that will be shown on the score board, not your individual grades) will be issued a 5 point deduction for every instance where more than one question is asked per team, more than one team member asks a question, or a question is asked that is answered/addressed/linked in the assignment description/assignment document, or that can be answered fairly easily via internet research or group discussion. Therefore, it would be wise to discuss your questions and thoughts with your team members first, to only ask a question that is deemed very important by the entire team and unanswerable via internet research or discussion, and to specifically assign one person to ask the question on behalf of the entire team.

The Tableau 1 project is quick and covers everything you needed to learn to complete this project. Please complete this project before asking for Tableau 2 project help.

READ THIS!! When done – there are 2 steps:

  • First, submit to the project assignment to THIS assignment: and include your 1) a Word document, 2) a Tableau twbx file (be sure it ends with twbx) and 3) the URL to your YouTube video (copy / paste it to the comment area of the assignment)
  • Next, submit your URL to the “Citizen Data Science Certificate Survey in our Assignment area”.

Check your upload: look at the submission information on the right side of your screen and 1) download a copy a copy of your project FROM Canvas to another folder on your computer. 2) Open this copy, be sure it’s the right project, etc. and then 3) close / save this copy. This is your back up copy and the creation and last modified dates will be retained as long as it is unopened.

Khamkon_Tableau2.twbx Natkamon_Tableau2.docx. both files name for the tableau and the document should look like this.

  • Switch your video to your desktop* and with your Tableau file open, walk through your Tableau project, describing:
  • a) The data
  • b) Each of your 4 (or more) worksheets / visualizations, explaining why each analytic is meaningful.
  • c) Your dashboard(s) – what is included and why you included these visualizations. Your dashboard should be interactive, so demonstrate this.
  • d) Your analysis ‘story’ – what your analysis shows, the conclusions and your recommendations.
  • e) What you learned about Tableau and your data
    (Use your Word document above to guide your video script.)
  • Upload your video to YouTube as an unlisted video and test your URL / link.
  • 1. Look at the source data to get an idea of what it’s all about (you can do this either in Tableau or look at it in Excel). If you are using Excel, you can do some filtering or pivot tables to see what is in each field – looking for any outliers or interesting trends. Some things you might want to look at are:§ Dates, any spikes or dips in sales, which brands / departments, which states or regions, profits§ Cities, states or regions, what sells, how much in sales and/or profitBrands or departments – what sells best in which states or regions, at which times, etc
  • In Tableau, create an initial broad visualization (sheet #1) and again, notice some outliers or some trends that may be interesting

    2. Create sheet #2 to further explore either the outlier(s) or the trends. For example, depending on your data, this could lead to geographic questions, questions relating to years, specific products, departments, etc. You can do this by duplicating sheet 1 and filtering / drilling down.

    3. Create sheet 3 to explore the questions in sheet 2 in more detail – by filtering again and /or showing some different attributes (fields) and using a different visualization format. This will lead to more questions about the trend / outliers that you can further drill down to analyze

    4. Sheet 4 (or more) will let you keep looking at the data in more detail until you figure out what triggered the outlier or is most responsible for the trend. Depending on your data, this could be product sales in a specific region or by a specific product or department.

    5. When you have figured this out – come up with one or more recommendations. Depending on your data, it could be something like – don’t sell xxx in this state, or this was a bad month for product xxx in state yyy, but they recovered, or… whatever you discover. Create a dashboard or two to illustrate this.

    6. Then go back and create a story with your sheets and dashboard(s), be sure to include all of the required Tableau features (see the instructions on this) .
