Assists

For this assignment, you'll provide an extra "participation component" for two class sessions, as assigned below.

Your contribution should comprise three components:

  1. A discussion question that could facilitate substantive discussion of some assigned reading material.
  2. A recent, connectable article from a feminist website (published within 4 months of your assist date).
  3. A relevant anecdote or some commentary drawn from your personal experience/opinions/worldview.

Your basic task is to present some critically informed insights and personal analysis to expand our understanding of the day's reading. Plan for about 3 minutes to present your material to the class.

Some suggested feminist websites are listed below (and on the support page of this site), but other sources may be appropriate depending on your selected material.

Bring a properly completed Assist Form, and a hard copy of your selected article, to class on each of your assigned dates. I'll complete my portion of the form and return it to you at the end of your assigned class session or the beginning of the next class session.
