emotional reactions to the readings. If there are no assigned readings due, you are to write at least 2 issues that you would like to discuss. The grade for this section will be based on whether your questions/comments are relevant and whether it is clearly evident that you have read and have thought about the readings. To stimulate class discussion and to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to contribute to the dialogue, during each class meeting, several students will be randomly selected to share the first section of their journal entries with the class. Thus, even during the weeks that you have selected to not write in your journal, please make sure you still bring into class 2 questions, comments, or issues that you would like to share. The second section, to be completed AFTER the week’s lectures, may address your thoughts, reactions, questions, behaviors, and/or feelings associated with specific topics, readings, activities, and/or discussions that were brought to your attention during our class discussion. This section is worth 30 points. Please discuss what impact, if any, did the discussion or activity have on your emotions, beliefs, and behaviors? In addition, reflect on what you have discovered about yourself, your classmates, and/or others inside or outside of the class (remember this will be anonymous to everyone but moi). Please address at least 1 of the following questions when writing this section 1) What dynamics did you notice in the classroom? 2) What do you think was achieved, if anything, as a result of the discussion and/or activity? 3) How would you summarize your own public or private participation in the discussion and/or activity? 4) Are there contributions to the discussion/activity that you wish you had or had not made? 5) How would you characterize the participation of others (classmates, instructor)? 6) What specific perspectives were offered during the discussion? In what ways might the social category membership (age, race, sexual orientation, class, disability, etc.) of various participants contribute to their views and understandings of the issues? 7) How might your own social category membership affect your views and understanding of the issues? and 8) In what ways might you wish to address the topic differently in future discussion? From time to time, I may ask you to include in your journal entries your reactions or thoughts about specific issues/questions. The second section of your journal entries will only be read by me and its specific content will not be shared with your classmates. Please write in the journal only what you feel comfortable disclosing. Your grade on the second section will be based on its completeness (depth and thoroughness), not its content. Please keep all your journal entries in a 3-ring binder. You will be asked to turn in your journal several times during the semester. Due: I will let you know two days before I collect them. They will usually be due on the Thursday lecture.

    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.
