War on Women Teach-In at Purdue!

war on women teach-in

This coming week, several student organizations have come together to offer a campus teach-in on the recent “war on women” in America. Teach-ins are an effective activist educational tool, designed to educate the public about an important issue or group of issues and get them involved in further actions.

Because this event combines both important content as well as activism/activist tools – something you can learn from in addition to your service learning – I’ll offer 10 points of extra credit for those who attend one of the teach-ins and turn in a write-up in response to the experience, including what you learned. Try to tie in what you’ve learned from class, as well as the reading from Grassroots, in your writing about this event.
