First, give us the basic bio--- your name, major and minor(s), your pronoun. Then, tell us what you knew about Angela Davis before this week's reading and how you learned it (school, social media, TV, etc). Please be honest. If nothing, we need to use this as a litmus test of how much school includes women and women of color.
II. Name Game (counts as 1 point)
III. Opening Business
IV. JOURNAL ASSIGNMENT #1 (worth 2 points)
(see syllabus excerpt to the right)
V. First Presentation: ORNELLA
VI. Discussion based on first presentation
Because of the holiday, we meet face-to-face on this Wednesday. Remember: this is a conversion day so you need to go to your Monday classes.
Go to the course website: realwriting.org. Click on the tab called “Came thru Drippin” (Gender and Justice). Go to the subpage called “Freedom is a Constant Struggle.” You will find a link to the reading there. Read “Feminism and Abolition: Theories and Practices for the 21st Century.” Your first journal activity will be about this essay.
When you come to class, expect a journal assignment at the very beginning of our time together. You can bring a copy of the text with you (hardcopy or online--- yes, you can use your device). You will have 10-15 minutes to write. If you come late or miss class, you will NOT get to make up the time or the assignment. Be prepared to compare this chapter with the film you watched. This is Journal Assignment #1.
