Personal reflection

Your 1 page journal entry should be a personal reflection on whatever interested you the most in the material assigned this week. Explain how the readings/films/class discussions, etc. challenged you, inspired you, frustrated you, intrigued you, motivated you, etc. etc. You might consider addressing how the content made you reconsider a preconceived idea or thought; how the content motivated you to live or treat others differently; how the content frustrated you or made you uncomfortable; how the content contradicted or confirmed your own experiences; how the content connects to prior material in the course or content in your other classes; how you see the content connecting to politics, your religion, your family, your community (college or elsewhere), the media you consume, etc. Ultimately, the journal entries are a chance for you to demonstrate knowledge of the that week’s material while also applying it to personal interests, experiences, etc. (Occasionally I will provide a more specific prompt or series of questions to answer—so, make sure you always check on Canvas before beginning each journal—but, I am leaving today’s prompt relatively open-ended and giving you the opportunity to craft your own focus!)

At the end of your journal entry, please propose a specific discussion question you would like the class to address in our class discussion. The discussion question should be focused on that day’s material but it doesn’t necessarily have to have the same focus as your journal entry (though it certainly can!).
