Your proposal, which counts for 5% of your final course grade, is due class 10 (Thursday, Oct. 6). Your presentation, which counts for 10% of your final course grade, will take place either on class 26, 27, or 28 (either Monday Dec. 5, Thursday Dec. 8, or Monday Dec. 12). Objective. The social action project gives you the opportunity to take concepts learned in class into the community at large. The objective of the action project is to make what we have learned in class more tangible by connecting class readings, ideas, and discussions to our social and economic world. Expectations. Although your project can take many forms, it should adhere to following criteria: * Focus on a gendered issue * Be geared toward promoting social change * Engage with a group outside of our class * Utilize a framework or analytical method from the course materials * Incorporate actions that originate with you. For example, you cannot simply show up at a demonstration, you must come with something to contribute besides your presence. Ideas for Content.
