Women's Studies: Applying and Assessing Gender Theory part of State Your Case:Activities
Participants in Women's Studies Senior Seminar, Discourses in Gender, complete two projects toward the goal of understanding, evaluating, and applying theory.­ For Project I, students write an annotated bibliography and a 7-page research essay. For Project II, students design and implement a community activity informed by their research. In addition to organizing and leading the activity, students write a project summary, a self-assessment, and a 2-page essay assessing a particular theory's value as a tool for addressing the problem or condition emphasized in the project. Each project is completed in stages, using a progressive rubric to evaluate each stage.
