This class was tough.
I would definitely recommend this course because it opened my eyes to all of the social constructs that have been put into my mind by society throughout the years. I feel more confident about educating a diverse group of students and adult-learners as well, and I look forward to applying one of the most important things that I have learned about (in my opinion), experiential learning.
The highlights of this course were definitely the first two observations because they allowed us to watch people and how what we think of as normal is really a social construct being put into place. Another thing that was really enjoyable was when we interviewed another student at Chapman University about their own social identity and then compared their identity to our own because it taught me a lot about advocacy for other students in an educational setting.
