Blog Assignment:
Please visit http://designother90.org/ and choose a “Solution” that you find appealing. Write a brief summary and analysis of that work along with why you think it is effective in promoting positive social change.

Please remember: Choose “Spring 2015 Student Posts” as your category and add appropriate tags. There should be at least one image in your post that shows the work as well as any links if applicable. Use the “more” tag under the TEXT tab so your post doesn’t take up the entire home page. Make sure to proofread well and avoid typos.
