In today's class, we finished up our unit on gender and culture, which mainly looked at violence against women and the misuse of "cultural practice" a justification to deny equality to women.
We moved onto our group presentations. We got the chance to listened to two excellent presentations; the first one on Amish culture and the other on Hispanic-American culture.
Next Week's Lesson:
In next week's lesson, we'll finished up with the other two group presentations and complete the course evaluations. In our last class, you'll get your last letter from your Cambodian partner (July 21).
Instead of our final test on the last day of class, I'll give you a take-home test. You'll have to answer two essay questions. I'll post them in the next few days, and you'll have almost two weeks to complete them.
