In this course, students first identifed why and how racism occurs and is maintained, and then analyzed various social-psychological interventions that have been designed to reduce racism, specifically. For the Midterm, students used the faculty's educator subscription to Pixton (https://edu.pixton.com/educators). Students were tasked with designing a cartoon strip that details a particular psychological, social-psychological, historical, and/or legal process that has contributed to racism today.
Comic Strip Midterm - Documenting Historical and Social Psychological Processes of Racism: Using the Pixton software, students were asked to pictorially explain a (or a set of) historical and/or social psychological process(es) that have contributed to our understanding of how racism is constructed, reinforced, and/or maintained in our society. Aspects of the project include the creation of a storyboard/script, the production of at least 2 characters that engage with each other to discuss, describe or act out a particular process, 2 different backgrounds/scenes, and 15 to 20 panels. This assignment was completely remotely and accounted for 20% of the students' grade.
