This essay focuses on collaboration with a colleague. As I mentioned earlier, I developed the framework for this course last year in collaboration with a colleague at John Jay College. The John Jay class took the project further in that a few students created an Editorial team that worked through the summer to produce a public webpage that showcased the results of their research and experience as a class.
Reading Assignment: Please look closely at the following website and answer the questions below: “COVID-19 at CUNY: A Class Project: John Jay College of Criminal Justice (CUNY) – Spring 2020 Law & Society 425-03,” https://johnjay.digication.com/covid19-at-cuny/home-1 Homework Assignment For next week, I want you to start thinking collectively about areas of research\/56′ research questions that you might focus on in your final papers. . Please answer the questions below in about 1-2 paragraphs each. Turn in your responses using the link I posted in the Readings & Assignments Folder for Week 6 on Blackboard. On the top left corner of the webpage, click on the “Timeline” link; click on March 2020.
that are listed in the timeline (March-April-May 2020). You’ll notice that most of the timeline is based on students posting about their experiences. As you read and/or watch the video clips of students describing their experiences, what social patterns jump out at you? How do these patterns change over the three months included in the timeline? If we were to create a similar timeline for our class, from January 1, 2021 until the present, how do you think student postings now would be different? (In other words, how do you think our experience with COVID-19 of CUNY students today differs from what you see in the timeline?) Do a little bit of internet research.
another should be for something significant that happened at CSI, CUNY, or Staten Island; and the third should be something important that happened either at the level of the United States or globally. After you go through the Timeline, click on “Research Themes” in the top left corner of the webpage and read through the various research themes that the students wrote about last year. Please notice that some of the thematic pages begin by listing subthemes that individual students explored within each group. These might help you think about how to focus your own project this year. Choose two of the themes listed on the website. and why? (In other words, what would be different today as opposed to last spring? And what would be different if we were to focus on Staten Island and CSI instead of John Jay College?)
