[Get Solution] Journal Entries from Personal Experience
I.D.E.A. Journal (100 points total) Due Date: 11/06/2020 by 11:59pm The I.D.E.A. Journal is assigned to serve several purposes in this course. Most importantly, this assignment will demonstrate how well each student understands the material, as well as encourage you to view situations in life with an open and objective perspective. This assignment will require you to complete four (4) journal entries over the course of the semester. For each entry you will be required to Identify a situation in real life that exhibits some form of gender bias or gender difference. Once you have identified it, you need to Describe the situation in detail; basically painting a picture of what you witnessed. Then you will need to Explain what you witnessed, including why you think this gender difference occurred. Finally, you need to Apply explanations we have discussed in class and material we have covered to the specific situation you observed. Ideally, I would like for all journal entries to be from personal experience; however, you will be able to use news sources for up to two (2) of your entries. The other two (2) of your journal entries must be from either your personal experience or that of someone very close to you that has relayed the experience to you. This assignment is going to require you to think outside the box. Each journal entry should be 1-2 pages in length, typed, double-spaced, Times New Roman 12 pt font, with 1 inch margins on all sides. Your completed journal (not each entry) should include one title page that includes your name, the current semester, and the name of the assignment. The only information that should be provided on each entry should be the entry number, date of observation, and location of observation. You have a significant amount of freedom with this assignment. Your journal will be graded based on writing conventions, content, and application of course material to real-life situations. I have provided some example entries from past students for you to look over to get a better idea of what I expect from this assignment. Please do not hesitate to ask any questions if you have them.
