“class dialogue” is a vehicle for thinking critically about issues relating to one’s faith tradition, personal vocation, social justice awareness and service experiences.
Class Dialogue assignment should consist of three parts and should be approximately one or one half , double-spaced pages in length (not much more or less). Label each part of your Class Dialogue: “Part 1: Annotated Reading List,” “Part 2: Selected Quote,” and “Part 3: Reflection/Media Search.” And Part 4: Discussion question.
Part 1: Annotated Reading List:
There are 3 reading assignments
Number each of the assigned readings/film clips. For each of the assigned readings or viewings, name the article (or document or film clip) and give a three sentence annotation stating what is contained in the reading or film clip. This format is similar to what you would find in an annotated bibliography. Here is an example:
Davidson, Hilda Ellis. Roles of the Northern Goddess. London: Routledge, 1998.
Davidson’s book provides a thorough examination of the major roles filled by the numerous pagan goddesses of Northern Europe in everyday life, including their roles in hunting, agriculture, domestic arts like weaving, the household, and death. The author discusses relevant archaeological evidence, patterns of symbol and ritual, and previous research. The book includes a number of black and white photographs of relevant artifacts.
(This annotation includes only one paragraph, a summary of the book. It provides a concise description of the project and the book’s project and its major features.) https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/614/03/
Part 2: Selected Quote:
Choose one quote from any one of the reading assignments that struck you for whatever reason. (Cite the title of the document and the page number.) Then in three sentences, explain why this quote held personal meaning for you.
Part 3: Reflection/Media Search:
The aim of this course is to relate readings in Catholic Social Justice to your own life. In this section, write about any personal experience you (or someone close to you) have had that is relevant to the topic for the week. Reflect honestly on the experience in light of the week’s reading. You must give one practical example of a connection between the reading and this life experience. This should be the longest section of your class dialogue.
If there is no pertinent experience you can draw upon, you may conduct a media search (this can include newspaper articles, YouTube videos, music videos, reputable news blogs, radio/podcasts, etc.) for a current, relevant media story/video that addresses the same issues found in the readings. Discuss the ways in which the media story relates to the readings, correctly citing the media source.
