Review and Re-Review the course materials relevant to Race & Ethnicity, expanding our knowledge of others and their worlds, and guaging the level of the playing field in Bucher (and Sernau text/ chapter). Create an original powerpoint presentation that discusses the contemporary social issues outlined regarding race and ethnicity. You must factor in the PBS Documentary “We shall remain” and the article “Invention of Thanksgiving” by Siskind as well as other relevant material from this course.
A minimum of original and creative powerpoint slides with no more than 13 presentation slides please; slide 1 must be title page & final slide is for your references/ bibliography. Reference sources throughout your presentation.
Considering the genocide committed upon Native Americans, the stereotypical images of the “Indian” that is a fixture in the US media, their virtual exclusion from the history books in schools. and their socio-economic status of poverty to date, are Native American team mascots in American Schools and Sports teams honoring Native American Peoples?
Or, do such logos and mascots further the vicious cycle of prejudice and discrimination against them as does say confederate flags and stereotypical images of blacks, Latinos and women that are extant in American media and society? What do you think?
Lastly, according to our course material, who are Billy Mills and Charlene Teeters? What others folks are highlighted and why? Will they win this battle? Why or Why not?
According to Siskind, what really occurred that gave rise to the current myth of that first “thanksgiving” in US society. Is her argument compelling why or why not?
Lastly, you must use a current source (beyond those provided in the canvas module/ one that you locate and include) to bring the discussion current. This article that you will choose must be current 2020, 2021, 2022 and use it to support your ideas, concerns, or views for how to resolve this contemporary social issue.
NOTE: Cover page/ slide and Reference page/ slide are needed, but do not count towards the max of 15 slide
Use the criteria in reflection grading rubric, and follow the rules for avoiding plagiarism found in your syllabus.
Be Clear, be original and be creative (over 24% similarity score will not be accepted) and do not write an essay paper
and paste it across multiple PPT slides; this will not be accepted
Include evidence from our source materials (Bucher and Sernau textbook, thanksgiving article by Siskind, and documentary Dishonorable Mention, and at least 2 outside scholarly article or credible written news source) to support your arguments… discussing contemporary issues such as Native americans and Covid 19, Alcohol on reservtions, Income disparity at present, Columbus Statues, Confederate Statues and Name Changes of schools, Universities, buildings and/ or military bases and sports teams will all require outside sources so again, properly reference your answers/ sources within the presentation and at the end of your CREATIVE powerpoint presentation include in your bibliography/ reference list.
