Complete your assigned reading for this week and review the readings from previous weeks.
Note: the concept you choose will have been covered in your reading assignments, but it may or may not have been covered in other assignments and/or discussions with your professor or peers. Nevertheless, you are responsible for all of the content related to this course; more to the point, you are specifically responsible for your own learning even though it may not be actively assessed. Consider this assignment to be a self-assessment.
Conduct research in addition to the content in your textbook (at least two relevant resources), as appropriate, for your topic.
