Homework Question Assignment 3
For homework question assignments, you
respond to targeted homework questions based on articles,
videos and/or research that
relate to learning goals 1-6 in the syllabus.
These are low stakes assignments designed to help you engage with
the material. I will mark whether you attempted the questions and a good
faith effort is all I ask
for at this point. These may be informally hand written, typed or spoken
expositions such as bullet points.
They are due at the beginning of class before our class
discussion, so you may want a second copy, for example by taking a picture
of your work. There is no late work
accepted, but the lowest two homework question assignments can be dropped.
- Choose a representation of a male in popular culture that you
are familiar with. List their name and where they are portrayed.
(Example: Finn, Star Wars: The Force Awakens)
- Comment on an item in this article as it relates to your
response from #1.
(Example: Finn is openly emotional and caring,
probably closest to the `new man as nurturer' categorization.)
- This article was full of examples of a summary
approach of popular culture (that some might broadly refer to as as
content analysis). As part of the authors' analyses, the text satisfied:
LG 1: I can summarize media and popular culture representations of
Which LG 1 summary most interested you? Why?
- Name at least two aspects of this article that
that you found interesting, that you disagreed with, and/or that
you had a question on.
