visual model for systems thinking


1. Go back to class 4 critical frameworks assignment; review the media literacy questions, refresh your memory of the Iceberg Model on systems thinking, and your notes for the Oppression Matrix.  Use the Oppression Matrix categories — institutions, culture, individuals, hegemony — as prompts to discuss how they apply to your topic.  Post this on your rolling Google doc.

2.  Read 1966 Black Panther Party 10-Point Program, What We Want, What We Believe  and Seneca Falls Declaration of Sentiments. (1848)

Notice the relative brevity of the statements of particular grievances.  How can you do that for the list you will create for #3?

3.  Make a list of your grievances; could be three or however many more you believe should be enumerated..  You’ll share these in class towards the goal of creating a shared topic group list of concerns.   Post your individual list on your rolling Google doc.

The Declaration of Sentiments, also known as the Declaration of Rights and Sentiments, is a document signed in 1848 by 68 women and 32 men—100 out of some 300 attendees at the first women’s rights convention to be organized by women.  The convention is now known as the Seneca Falls Convention. The principal author of the Declaration was Elizabeth Cady Stanton, who modeled it upon the United States Declaration of Independence.  She was a key organizer of the convention along with Lucretia Coffin Mott, and Martha Coffin Wright.
According to the North Star, published by Frederick Douglass, whose attendance at the convention and support of the Declaration helped pass the resolutions put forward, the document was the “grand movement for attaining the civil, social, political, and religious rights of women.” Wikipedia
