Taking inspiration from Jo(e), I passed out index cards and asked my students to write down one thing they learned in class this semester. These are the anonymous responses I received in the order in which I received them.
I learned that I am more radical than I previously thought.
I learned what To Write Love on Her Arms is. I also learned what kinds of issues my classmates are interested in.
I learned how to write a memo correctly!
I learned how to write an effective proposal. And I can add it to my portfolio. Yay!!
I learned how to do InDesign, which is really amazing because it will help me in future projects in school or jobs.
I learned in this class that I will never, ever, ever, have an abortion. I always will consider myself as pro-choice. However, I would be be able to, not even if it was rape. I wouldn't take the morning after pill.
I learned how to give A LOT more detail in writing. I know that I am a good writer, but I coast on my already handy skills. However, now I feel like I'm more capable of writing better.
I learned how to use InDesign, which was awesome. Before this class, I didn't even know what InDesign was. Now I am going to see if I can download it and get even more familiar.
I learned how to write a grant, which I hope will land me a job. I also learned new perspectives on life (Our Bodies, Ourselves; Notorious HIV, etc.).
I learned more about the female body that I thought I ever needed to know. Reading The Vagina Monologues was a lot of fun, and I never would have read it otherwise. Learned about layers in InDesign.
How to write a memo, kind of.
The one thing I learned this semester is how to turn an Adobe project into a PDF.
I learned more about sexuality. Actually, through research for our projects, I learned more about bisexuals and bisexuality.
Rob Reiner is a feminist. How to create backgrounds in Adobe InDesign.
