Slevin Assignment Sequence Prize, this sequence originates from the Department of Government, Govt 1101, Power and Politics: Bad Grrrls: Feminism, Religion, and Politics.

Essay 1: an academic position paper on a research topic of students' choice. Essay 2: an opinion article for a newspaper. Essay 3: a creative spoken monologue for an audience unfamiliar with their topic. Essay 4: a team debate case formed around two central questions from the course. Materials include a rationale for each assignment, the preparatory work, the students' assessment of the assignment, the instructor's assessment, and copies of handouts for such pre-writing work as brainstorming, outlining, and creating character profiles. 28 page pdfen_US
