This is a unique course to support action in our communities during this time period. How do we help one another in a time of adversity? What can we do on an individual basis that will help lift spirits, reduce isolation, advise on an area of your expertise, help others organize, or participate in multiple volunteer positions?
This course is being offered to give you an outlet for your participation in the greater good. It is open to all majors. You will work independently with consultation. The equivalent of 1 unit is 30 hours. Students will log hours with descriptions of their activities. We will develop a list of possible things to do together.
Social distancing is our most important responsible act at this time. There are many other general things we can do, but what can Literature students do in their field? What can Music students do for theirs, Physics, Math, and so on? The class will also provide an opportunity for students to pool their ideas and expertise to identify possible solutions to simple and complex problems through brainstorming discussions. Depending on the outcomes, smaller groups may pursue individual ideas in greater depth.
