Remember to respond to all prompts below.
Based on your attendance at the Census 2020 Campus & Community Discussion on February 25, respond to the following prompts:
- Why is it important to be counted in the census?
- Who are often uncounted in the census? Why might some people wish not to be counted? What are some personal and societal impacts of not being counted?
- What is one new thing you learned during the session?
- Describe one of your passions (i.e. something important to you) and how it connects with federal or state funding.
Our HONS 250 class blog will list all assignments for your Reading Reflection Blog Posts. I will post the reflection prompts here that you will use as a basis for your reading reflections that you post on your own personal blog. We may use the blog for a few additional activities so be sure you follow the directions on using categories and tags.
We will also use this course blog to post information that we want all of our class to see. This can include a link to an article of interest, an announcement for a campus or community event, links to group assignments or presentations that we share with the whole class, and whatever else we might want to share.
I have only used a blog in class once before so I will try to be very clear about your blog assignments. I will take your advice on how to make it easier to use. When you have questions, please let me know right away.
