CELEBRATION PAPER (35 points). This two-page* paper (500 words minimum) is a reflection and celebration of what you have learned from the class and is due on the day of the Final. Pick some of the more interesting, important and helpful things you learned about race/ethnic relations and reflect on the following questions: Have you changed any of your thinking or behavior because of this class?
Has your interaction with others been altered? What was the most important, meaningful, or helpful part of this class? What aspects of the course meant the most or stretched your mind the most? Explain why these phenomena are interesting, important, or helpful to you. Is there something you think that you will take with you and have in your life a year from now? Five or more years from now? How will this impact your life? Will your relationships with others or with the community and larger society be different? Has the way you feel about yourself now changed from how you felt before this class? If so, how? What do you wish for yourself, for your fellow classmates, for your society? These personal reflections are an important part of who you are.
