Saturday, November 9, 2013 to Friday, February 7, 2014
Abstract: 

Sociology 130, Human Sexuality, focuses on the social, cultural, and institutional contributions to human sexuality. Throughout the semester, students address how society constructs expectations and limitations on sexuality. The last assignment is to create a sexual rights document and to discuss the document with your classmates. The sexual rights document will be assessed through a rubric which focuses on research, sociological imagination, and critical thinking. The SOC 130 online course will be piloted in Spring 2014. The sexual rights document will be assessed for the online course and the face to face course to see the similarities and differences between the two courses. This will be completed when a traditional SOC 130 gets enrollment to be taught.

Completed Full Cycle: 
No
Course Number: 
SOC 130

Sounds interesting.  Would you mind sharing the rubric?

Three things, Olga. First, I like how you are preparing to compare your online documents to your F2F docs. Second, I hope you will consider being involved in the Information Literacy assessment happening this spring. Because research is involved, along with a project/document, it seems perfectly suited for this assessment. Third, in my EDU230 class, students are given a packet of resources to aid them in creating a lesson to increase multicultural competence in a given education setting. One of the resources I provide them is the United Nation's "Universal Declaration of Human Rights" document. I'm curious how this compares with your rubrics for your sexual rights document. Interesting stuff!

This sounds like a very creative assignment for the students, Olga. Are they given any parameters for the assignment, (such as length, content, structure) or are they allowed to determine what should be in it for themselves? Also, can you please elaborate on how students would use "sociological imagination" in creating the document? Maybe an example would help ne understand the concept. 

I love the fact that students are doing research then synthesizing what they've learned to create something new!

Olga, this is a wonderful idea. It would be interesting to find out first what sort of "rights" different groups have now and were not allowed to have in the past. Great work!

HI Kathleen, Sorry it took me so long to respond! I usually spend time on CATS at the beginning of each semester. I am hoping to look at the results soon from last semester.Thanks! Olga
