Task: Identify a place of your choosing that will be the focus for the larger My Place Project. This should be a place that you care about. It could be somewhere you live or have lived, or it could be a place that you’ve never visited but want to visit or live. If your place is very large, like Russia, or the Rocky Mountains, you will need to narrow your focus to a more specific place, like the area around Moscow or a specific subrange of mountains in the Rockies like the Sangre de Cristos. If this is a very small place, like a specific house or neighborhood, you will need to consider the larger regional context. For example, if I (Dr. Aber) chose my house in Murfreesboro as my place, I would need to think about the larger Middle Tennessee region, or at least Rutherford County in addition to just my house. Also in this first assignment, you will also need to describe why you have chosen this place. What is your relationship to this place? Why is it important to you?
