Compose a short (1-3 paragraph) summary of what you learned in this module. You may want to write about:

• your reaction to particular ideas presented in this module

• questions you may still have

• any “aha” moments that may have occurred to you

• connections between what you’ve learned and how you might use this information in your professional or personal life

Be as specific as possible about your learning and include one or two examples of how this module changed the way in which you think about the earth
