Learning Goals and Assessments
- 1. Students gain self-awareness as they document their baselines of knowledge about gender from a personal standpoint before engaging in a more scholarly study of gender from a sociological perspective.
- 2. Students use their self- awareness about latent and/or express ideas about gender in a constructive way in the classroom, understanding the difference between personally attained knowledge/ideas and scholarly attained knowledge/ideas.
- 3. Students have an opportunity at the end of the gender topic unit to reflect on what they have learned and realize the ways they might be integrating a stronger sociological perspective into their thought processes in and out of the classroom.
- 1. Students create a statement to refer to as a benchmark of their intellectual development for gender understandings. Instructors can use these statements to tailor their classroom approaches to content (Svinicki 2004; Zull 2002).
- 2. Classroom engagement will be high. Dialogue among students will be constructive and centered around scholarly understandings of gender.
- 3. Students engage with class content using their baselines of knowledge both before starting to study the gender topic, and then after. Instructors can modify course content to more effectively meet students where they are in their understandings.
