Compile a list of twenty significant cultural developments from the past. You may use the Personal Significance interactive media piece (linked in the assessment resource activity) to help assemble this list:
Describe the cultural developments you noted and then evaluate their applications to modern life.
Notice any compelling themes. Are there any common themes or persistent forms of expression, or especially vital historical periods, among your choices? Think about what the items you selected say about who you are and what gives your life meaning.
