Project 2

Course:Emerging Issues in Athletics
Project Title: Reflection on Social Justice 

Project Description: The goal of our three class social justice series was to teach students to think critically about personal beliefs/biases that may have been realized through the reading of Toni Morrison's, ""The Bluest Eye"" and a class discussion of the history of social justice. Students were then asked to formulate questions for a panel of University and Civic leaders to discuss social justice issues facing today's society. The outcome of the series required students to express personal reflections and opinions in written form following the book and panel discussion.

Topics: You can choose any of the following topics: 1) College freshman year during the pandemic: Focus on how you are maneuvering in these conditions, how you feel about the world, and how you will advance. These are only options. You can take any direction you feel. 2) Gender rules, roles, and stereotypes: How do you see define gender? Do you have a definition? What needs to happen in terms of gender? 3) Radio: Find a song about WOMEN you do not normally listen to, and write a poem inspired by the message you hear. 4) Compare and Contrast Personality: What are some key differences and similarities between genders? Are those similarities and differences caused by society? What do you see? 5) Time Freeze: Imagine you are right amid the second wave feminism (1970s) and the clock stops and all the people in the world are frozen in place. What are they doing? What are you thinking? What is happening?
