I’m studying and need help with a Sociology question to help me learn.
This is an extra credit assignment (NOT MANDATORY) for anyone who wants to learn more about anti-blackness in US society from college professors who participated in the #ScholarStrike for Racial Justice on Sept 8 & 9, 2020.
Go to the #ScholarStrike Youtube Channel and check out the various mini-lecture videos posted by professors across the country. They are each about 10 minutes long. I suggest you watch a few of them on topics that seem interesting (or challenging, confusing, or exciting) to you.
Select one video that makes you think and connect it to what we are learning together in this class. I suggest you focus on using 1-2 key concepts from our course as a way of making sense of, and ideally responding to, what the professor in the video is arguing.
Please be sure to include the LINK to the specific video you are writing about at the start of your response essay.
Aim for about 500 words (that’s about 2 pages double-spaced).
For the first page, translate what the professor is talking about in the video. You can devote a paragraph to their big picture argument, and a paragraph to some specific aspect of their argument that is most interesting to you. (This draws on 2 strategies from the Reading Difficult Texts hand-out: looking for the scholar’s argument, and translating the scholar’s argument into our own words.)
In the second page, share your sociological response to this professor’s argument in light of what you are learning about society in this course. Do not simply agree or disagree.
I recommend that you question and/or expand on what the professor is explaining. You can connect to your personal experiences; discuss what the video helped you better understand about how anti-blackness and/or carcerality works in our society systemically; and/or connect it to direct topics and data we have already encountered in our course. It is up to you – but do try to use 1-2 key sociological concepts here in your response to the scholar’s argument.
I will grade these extra credit essays at the end of the class and give you these points if you complete all of the other required assignments for the course. You cannot use these 5 points instead of, for example, completing the final exam, which is required.
Also, if you do not do this extra credit assignment, it will not hurt your grade. Review the Course Policies page on my grading method if you are concerned.
