contemplation 3


Question, process, challenge, and think deeply about how this week’s readings relate back to you. This is a place to share your thoughts and feelings: let them be raw and vulnerable. In 500 words minimum (2-3 pages), write a personal reaction about how the core arguments or stories of the readings relate to your understanding of identities, privilege and systems of oppression. Choose and include 1 quote from each of the assigned readings/sources and write 2 dialogic questions. Be sure to talk about each of the assigned readings/podcasts in your contemplations.  This assignment can also be submitted as a video, but we will be looking for the same amount of depth in what you say as we are in a written reflection.

Use these questions as a guide:

  • What feelings came up for you as you read the readings/sources?  What stories and personal experiences may be connected to those feelings? 
  • How did the readings/sources raise your level of consciousness around your identities, privilege and larger systems of oppression and your role in them?
  • What questions do you still have or want to continue thinking/talking about with others?
