This journal entry should be 5 pages long and present a review and summarize key concepts learned throughout this term. Students should look back and reflect on the progress they have made in their experience of exploring not only their identities but also the larger context that each of us are in, within the current society.
Students should note in particular what issues were most challenging or surprising for them to learn, to confront, or to explore. Was there any aspect of the course’s topics that used to be a “blind spot” in your daily life? What topic, if any, would you wish to explore more as a part of your personal journey? Please discuss in particular the intersectionality of your identities and privileges, as it relates to your role in society and how those identities and privileges influence how you see the world and how others may see you.
