For this week’s discussion question, look on social media, on TV or in an online publication for a RECENT visual or video meme/image that illustrates what Edward Said describes as Orientalism OR one that illustrates a meme of mestizaje/blanqueamiento. Post the image into the discussion, or a link to the image, and explain when (date), where and how you found it (the source). If you found it on social media, name the platform.
How is this an example of Orientalism or mestizaje/blanqueamiento? Be specific. Demonstrate that you are able to correctly understand Orientalism and can use terms mentioned in the lecture and the reading. Feel free to also mention the intra-action you may have had in response to seeing this meme.

Topic 3 Case Study
Professor Paula Provoker loved to elicit emotional reactions from students to get them involved in sociological topics. She felt strongly that once students emotionally connect to a topic, learning accelerates. Soon after evaluating the data from the mid-term exam, Professor Provoker was pleased with the assessment data she had collected: 80% of her 30 students were mastering the concepts of the course so far. The topic of the current week is civil disorder—more particularly, urban rioting. Wanting to show the history of civil disorder, and evoke student involvement, she decides to build the week around the showing and discussion of a film about the violent riots involving the police and demonstrators in Chicago during the 1968 Democratic Convention. After writing the learning objectives for that week on her white board, she explains the topic for the week and what students will be doing in class. She notices many students are excited about the topic. Before each segment of the video, Professor Provoker provides historical context in a brief 5-minute lecture and has students go over sections 2 and 5 in the textbook, Our Social World, along with her as she reads. Next, she hands out worksheets for students to complete as they watch each video segment. The worksheets contain space for six short answers to the questions where students are asked to analyze, explain, and compare/contrast. After each segment of the video presentation is complete, Professor Provoker asks students to go over their answers on the worksheets in small groups first for 5 minutes as she walks around and listens in on the small group discussions. Lastly, she asks all the students to discuss the video segment and their answers on the worksheets in a large group discussion setting. Professor Provoker is delighted with the responses of many students but is disappointed that others are not participating in the discussion.Students are required to turn in their worksheets each day at the end of class as an “exit ticket.” By the end of the week, Professor Provoker is thrilled with the scores of the worksheets. Not only were they completed by every student, but 90% of students answered the questions thoughtfully, citing details from the videos.
Citing two to four scholarly sources, answer the following prompts about the case study:Topic 3: Lesson PlanningDescribe Professor Provoker’s teaching method.

In terms of learning theory, what were some reasons her lesson did not have impact on other students? (75-100 words)Read sections 2 and 5 in Our Social World.
Explain whether or not the assigned textbook sections were sufficient to prepare students for this topic. (50-75 words)Our Social World http://lc.gcumedia.com/soc102/our-social-world-an-introduction-to-sociology/v1.1/#/chapter/2
What critical thinking strategies did Professor Provoker implement in her lessons that week? (50-75 words)
At what level of Bloom’s taxonomy were the worksheets? (50-75 words)
What learning styles did her lessons address? (50-75 words)
If you were to have a week-long topic on civil disorder, what teaching methods would you employ and why? (100-150 words)

Citing two to four additional scholarly sources, explain how professor independent might improve student performance for the large class and small groups in the second half of the term.

Topic 4 Case StudyProfessor Ivan Independent strongly believes in independent learning—that real learning takes place when students have to complete an assignment on their own. Professor Independent was starting a unit on social stratification in the United States. He had two classroom sections, one with 75 students; the other with fifteen. Instead of a class discussion, he decided to have the students in each section do an independent exercise that consisted of a packet of worksheets. To have the students focus, Professor Independent included key questions that needed to be answered, using the textbook. The packet was to be worked on in and out of class. He knew if the students could respond effectively to those questions, they would have mastery of the topic. After a 15-minute relaxed lecture about the topic, he handed out the packets to students and explained the assignment. Then, he returned to his desk and graded papers from the previous unit. As he sat at his desk, he occasionally glanced around the room. In his larger class, he noticed most of his students were using the textbook to complete the packet independently. Only two students were on their phones, and three students were reading books. In the smaller class, he noticed all students were working on the packet independently in class. Most of the students did well on the independent exercise, scoring 85% or higher. A week after the assignments were turned in, Professor Independent issued a midterm exam on the topic. Many of the scores, however, were substantially lower than he had expected.
Topic 4: FacilitatingCiting two to four scholarly sources, explain what is meant by facilitation in the college classroom. (50-75 words)
Describe two examples of facilitation inside the college sociology classroom. (75-100 words)
Citing the two to four scholarly sources about facilitation, explain whether or not Professor Independent’s facilitation method was effective. (75-100 words)
Why do you think some of the students did poorly on the midterm after doing well on the independent exercise? (50-75 words)
Citing two to four additional scholarly sources, explain how Professor Independent might improve student performance for the large class and small groups in the second half of the term. (75-100 words)
