Materials for Class

There are designated times for tweeting throughout class (entry and exit tweets), BUT you're always welcome to tweet more frequently. I'll keep an eye on the class hashtag via Tweetdeck, so feel free to add questions, comments, links, images, interesting stuff throughout class.

Entry Tweet (to be completed on arrival in class)

  • On Twitter or via Tweetdeck, answer one or both of the following (massive) questions (#hwc111 #c06):
    • What quality or qualities are you glad to have typically associated with your gender identity in the present world?
    • What quality or qualities do you wish were not associated with or a stereotype of your gender identity in the present world? 

Exit Tweet (to be completed at the end of class)

  • On Twitter or via Tweetdeck, using #hwc111 #c06, tell me who or what you thought was significant in today's class AND why you thought the person, thing, or idea was significant.
