Rhetoric & Comp – Monday, March 8th / Wednesday, March 10th

WRITE:  Quickwrite #15 – Watch the animated short “Alma” and consider how you might view it from a Feminist / gendered lens. Spend 3 minutes thinking on the page in your writer’s notebook.

STUDY:  Thinking about how Feminist theory operates, take a closer look with Crash Course Sociology’s look at Harriet Martineau & Gender Conflict Theory

VIDEO EXTRAS: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s TEd Talk / published essay ”We Should All Be Feminists” for perspective on what feminism is really about.

And for more focus of gender but not necessarily feminism, check out Crash Course’s video on Theories of Gender (the one on Sex & Sexuality is interesting too)

CREATE/SHARE:  Breakout (for whoever is in the same hour w/ the same books) Rooms & Padlet Board creation for BOOK CLUB reads.  Use your Notebook Page #3 to create post-its and to comment on/like the post-its of classmates.  What surprised you? Feel free to “talk” about the ENTIRE book.  Examine it as a whole, share your opinions, consider the ending.  (Same link & password for your padlet board as last week. Be sure to SIGN IN to Padlet so your name appears on your posts & commentary).
