Note: All assignments due are submitted on/by due dates and times
All course assignments are outlined and posted on the course Blackboard site. Late assignments will not receive full credit. To overview, the course is divided into five areas of evaluation:
1. Discussion Board – Collective participation and thoughtful responses to readings, activities, and discussions. During the ten weeks of the term, students will have weekly discussion board assignments, which pertain to the topic readings and/or external links. These weekly assignments may require creating art, image research and/or a brief analysis, response to other posts, and, they are to be posted under the appropriate thread category on the Discussion Board. The goal is to gain an understanding and application of the main points and concepts presented within each week’s topics. Your perspective is important to the creation of this class experience. Everyone is expected to participate. You must have access to a computer and a connection to Blackboard for this class. – 40 points (4 points for each assignment)
2. Journals – Personal reflective documentation for term readings. During the term, you will write reflections regarding the textbook readings for the week. You will begin with a brief description of each reading, including your perspective and understanding of the concepts and ideas expressed in the readings. Contextualize the ideas, as put forth in the readings, with what you are experiencing in this class, in relation to personal and collective identity, and art and its role in identifying and experience gender, as you develop your significant perspectives of art and gendered spaces. Journals are private in that they may only be read by you and me.
