Human Rights Journal
Write a journal throughout the duration of the course about your experiences encountering human rights in your daily life. The format of the journal is up to youentrees can vary in length, but at a minimum by the end of the semester you should have a min of 10 entries (minimum length of one A4 page per entry, 2 pages for smaller formats). Feel free to also include other brief notes, writing exercises, and study notes in the journal. The goal of the journal is to keep an informal, free form, writing/notes body of work relating to human rights that interests you. This journal writing assignments will benefit you by enhancing your reflection, facilitating critical thought, expressing feelings, and writing focused arguments. You can make entries based on news articles you have come across, areas of further exploration of class material, to hearing human rights mentioned in other aspects of their lives (around campus, family, friends, movies, TV, etc.). Keep your entries in a separate notebook (besides class notes paper). If you prefers typing on an electronic device, you will have to print off entrees and add them to the journalbut old school informal writing in a notebook has its advantages (for instance, it can be more of a free flow of thoughts, and also I will not care as much about spelling when grading). Journals will be collected and reviewed at the end of the semester.
