We have a few announcements for you this weekend, as you tackle Week 5's materials, on Violence Against Women in the Home & Community.
1. Your Field Assignment
Be sure to work on your "Engage Your Community" assignment this week! In your town or region, locate an organization that is working on an issue highlighted in this class. Interview the people at this organization: What is the name of the group? What is its mission or goal? How does it carry out its work? What is your sense of its effectiveness?
Share your findings here on our class forum. We already have a wonderful set of responses from students across the globe—see the map below!
Read the instructions (PDF) for this field assignment. We also invite you to include a photo of your organization as part of your post!
2. Chat with Other Learners Live
Sign up for a weekly Talkabout Session and chat about this week or last week's content live! You can choose to talk about Week 5 or Week 4's materials (we have added extra sessions this week to make up for last week.) Discussion guides are all available on the Discussion Toolkit section of the Interact Portal, which you can download before your talk.
