Assessment
and Goals
:

GOALS: This course hopes to introduce students to East Asian Women's history and gender studies. It will also work to develop critical thinking skills among students through frequent reading and writing assignments. ASSESSMENT: The course will assess its efficacy through student evaluations and the improvement of students' writing and reading skills.

Rationale for
Changes or
Exceptions
:

THE COURSE FILLS A CRITICAL NEED BY INTRODUCING UMM STUDENTS TO THE GENDERED DISCOURSES OF EAST ASIAN HISTORY. IT WILL ALSO ADD A NON-WESTERN COMPONENT TO THE WOMEN STUDIES PROGRAM.
