Discussion: There are 8 Discussion Questions on Canvas, basically one bi-weekly. These are to be answered in roughly 300 words. They are your thoughts (after reviewing the material). Once an initial answer is posted, you will have access to others’ posts. Please reply to at least one other student’s post with a follow-up question, additional thought, disagreement, etc. Please respond if I ask you a question in your thread. For each discussion question, you will get 12 points for the initial post of adequate size and thought and 6 points for adequate replies. If you feel that you’d like to pad your grade, replying to your replies will certainly be noted if there are ever those “Can you round my 89.1% to a 90%?” questions. Initial posts are due on Fridays, all responses are due by Sundays.
Choose one of the pages from this module to write about (Civil Rights & New Jim Crow). Ask any questions you have, share your thoughts, discuss your insecurities.
To get you started. How did you like Adiche’s talk? Had you heard of feminism before? Did you know that that was it? Did she shock you at all? What about the New Jim Crow issue? What are your takeaways from the article on disenfranchisement? Do you think it is getting undersold?
