Who said asynchronic classes are not collaborative?

Who said asynchronic classes are not collaborative? That they stifled independent learning? With this assignment, we are bucking the format and working together on an important research inquiry that expands our understanding of American women′s literature. Our research question for the end of this Module is: what kind of feminism does American women′s writing promote? This question is directed at the last 3 authors we have read in this module: Kate Chopin′s The Awakening; Charlotte Perkins Gillman′s ″The Yellow Wallpaper,″ and the collective authors of This Bridge Called My Back. The first two works emerge from the ″first wave of feminism″ at the late 19th century, and were embraced by the ″second wave″ of feminists in the 1960s and 70s. The third work emerges from the evolution of racial justice movements into ″women of color feminist″ movements emerging in the late 1970s and still evolving in the twenty-first century. You′ll conduct research through 3 venues: the assigned readings from class, or the ″primary sources″; 1 scholarly source that you find from an academic search engine, or a ″secondary source″; and as many links or images you can find from internet sources and You Tube. The final ″product″ is a Power Point presentation, or similar platform–with narrative (tutorial to come!!) Starting Wednesday, April 5, we′ll have discussion forums to plan the work and to organize the teams. You have a deadline of Friday to present an outline of the Power Point you plan to present, with a list of primary and secondary sources you will be using. You can choose either Kate Chopin′s The Awakening or Charlotte Perkins Gilman′s ″The Yellow Wallpaper″ as your primary sources for the ″first wave″/″second wave″ feminism part. Also, consider Betty Friedan′s The Problem that Has No Name as a primary source from the 1960s if you are going to be looking at the ″second wave″ feminist movement that rediscovered these works. When considering This Bridge Called My Back as a primary source, you can choose the poetry or essay of your choosing from our Tuesday discussion forum but have a good handle on the assigned prefaces and introductions. Here is an outline for you to follow: 1. Stating the research inquiry: a comparison of the two eras of American women′s writing and the feminist movements these represent 2. A short biographical sketch of either Chopin or Gilman 3. A reading of a few signal passages from either The Awakening or ″The Yellow Wallpaper″ 4. Research and scholarship on the literature and its role in late 19th century ″first wave″ feminism and 1960s ″second wave″ feminism 5. A ″biography″ of the Bridge Called My Back–what brought it into being; who did it; why they did it 6. A selection from the editors′ introduction and your choice of poetry 7. Research and scholarship on impact of the book on ″women of color feminism″ 8. Your comparison of the feminisms Keep in mind that for numbers 4 and 7, you only need 1 scholarly source that you find with a scholarly search engine (tutorial to come). Research and scholarship can include videos, graphics, weblinks, etc. The final Point Point should be submitted on Monday April 11 by midnight. If you are in a group, make sure you upload the Power Point yourself so it shows up in the Grade Center. A note on format: Power Points include a Design feature that allows you to make new graphic presentations of your material. Avoid the ″text-heavy″ slide that summarizes all your points. Use bullets instead, and expand in your narration.
