For our final project, I want you to take some time to reflect on the semester, think about what we’ve read, what we’ve done, and what all this could mean moving forward. To that end, I have three guiding questions you can address in the medium that best suits you. You can respond by writing individual answers or creating a narrative that answers the questions as one whole; you can make a short video or audio file; you can incorporate more creativity if it helps. This is the last assignment, and it replaces one of the major components. I don’t want this to take an exorbitant amount of time, but please give it as much attention as you can. I sincerely want to hear your thoughts and use them as I reflect on the semester and think about the next time I teach. More importantly, I want you to think about all you’ve done and about how what you’ve learned or encountered this term could be meaningful in future semesters or after graduation.
- Pick one work from our class that stood out. Why did you pick this one? What impact did it have on you? What did you learn?
- Pick one assignment (big or small) that you found most productive. Why was the assignment productive? What did you learn? Do you see ways what you learned could be useful after this class?
- What was one text or assignment you would rather not have read/done? Why?
- How will what you’ve learned in this class be meaningful for you in other aspects of your life?
The total written response should be between 500-700 words, a 5-7-minute video or audio recording, or a similarly enriching creative piece with a rationale for that choice.
When responding, please know that this is judgment free because I really want to know what worked, what didn’t, and what might be more successful in the future. I want you to reflect on what you’ve learned (or not learned) and close out the semester with intentionality.
