Please use the questions below to write 750-1000 word reflection on the course experience. In writing the reflection, students are expected to connect their experiences to specific readings, ativities, and course concepts from the class. Be specific, rather than general, and make as many references to course materials as possible.
I would attach all the lecture slides for the requirements below, and some readings I picked.
There are 8 lecture slides and a few readings I’d attach later on, right after our session’s started.
Even though you don’t have to use all the attachments I put below, you should use ONLY readings and files attached.
1. Which of the readings impacted you the most in the course? Was it the subject matter, the methodology, or something else that caught your attention? How did it change your ideas about American society?
Which of the films, videos, photograph or other visual image impacted you the most in the course? Was it the subject matter or something else that caught your attention? How did it change your ideas about American society?
2. Which of the lectures or class experiences about American society was the most insightful for you? Are there any new social or political issues that previously you paid little attention to but now are more likely to read about or talk over with friends and family? Did the class lead to any personal changes you might make in your own life?
3. What do you think is the greatest challenge American society faces in the next decade? What changes and adjustments will Americans have to make to guarantee that “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” is still alive and well in the United States.
**Make sure as you develop your answers to specifically draw upon and incorporate readings, visual elements and concepts that we explored throughout the quarter. A reflection is more than an “opinion” essay. It should show how you have absorbed and incorporated course materials in a way that is meaningful for you.
