Week 9 Week 9 Review   First, let me say thank you for the developing discussions over the past eight weeks. Your testimonies and  analysis have grown, and as many of you have attested to learning much, I too have learned much. Second, as  we've seen from the learning displayed in the processing of course materials, there has been growth both in  knowledge, in grounding and incorporating that knowledge, and in meeting challenges. I commend you. I also  appreciate that this process is ongoing and that challenges arise at times throughout that process. It can be  helpful at times to review goals, including syllabi, assignments, and items such as the Discussion Board criteria,  for a kind of "starting anew." For instance, critical discussion involves more than stating opinions; it involves  grounding those opinions in relevant concrete evidence and reasoning. Critical argument also involves more  than just stating an opinion of agreement or disagreement; it too involves grounding that opinion in relevant,  concrete evidence and reasoning. Certainly, we can appreciate that this takes time. Just as certainly I have  appreciated and learned so much from engaging in our discussions when this time is taken, which it has  particularly well this quarter! In my experience as both a student and an instructor (roles that are often  interchangeable), I've also come to appreciate that come about midterm, and the time following, all of us face  the increasing strain of the institutional structure of academia, what with midterms and finals on top of all the  other daily study. I'm sure we all empathize and even share that strain. Although I haven't noticed much of this  during this present quarter, if you are feeling the need for sharing such, I ask that you address these challenges  either by e-mailing me or by posing a question regarding your challenge in the Questions for Instructor forum of  the Discussion Board rather than in the weekly topic forums. The Student Lounge forum can be helpful with this  as well. Again, thank you. Week 9 Overview   I want to say that I have been especially moved in reading your postings and responses on Caring and in  reading your journals. For the next two weeks, which are the last two weeks (wow! the time has passed so  quickly!) of Humanities 106--Ethnic Thought and Culture, we will be focusing on applying what we've studied in  the previous four units to doing research on various topics that I have described in the Week 9 Assignments. As

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
