Alice Lloyd Hall residents are paired up with elementary students in a Detroit school for a variety of volunteer programs. The main vehicle is a pen pal program between the college and elementary students and a Kids-Fair that brings over 1,000 kids to campus. Additional activities, include the BookMARK reading/mentoring program, and other in-school and residence hall learning projects. You will engage with the younger kids through one of these programs, as well as help plan a fun and educational project for the students.

Have you ever lain in bed on a stormy night and contemplated what your life would be like if you were homeless? Or thought about the issue of affordable housing in our society today? Or maybe just had a dream to wear a tool-belt and really get to build something? Habitat for Humanity is an international, nonprofit organization working with volunteer builders and donors to create decent and affordable houses for those in need of shelter. Students in this section will participate in the construction of a house in Washtenaw County under the guidance and leadership of Habitat for Humanity.

Can you count how many times you've been asked, "what do you want to be when you "grow up?" Did you know the answer? For many of us, we still don't know the answer to that question, and, if we do, we're still working on how to get there.

This class is for people who know they want to do great things in their lives, but aren't exactly sure what that is. It is also for people who know what they want to do, but aren't exactly sure of how to go about doing it. We will explore issues around academic and career goals. Additionally, we will discuss strategies and opportunities for achieving those goals.

This course will meet for eight consecutive Tuesdays, from 12-1 p.m., starting on January 9 (no meeting on February 26 due to Spring Break).

Course Homepage: http://www.umichstudent.com/getonthebus

If you like boring lectures, multiple choice tests, and lots of assigned readings, then this course is not for you. This course is for people who want something different from their university and themselves.

In this course, we will study the most successful non-violent movement in American history: The Civil Rights Movement, 1956-1965. At times, we will learn about this movement from books. Just as frequently, we will learn from experience, traveling throughout the South and designing a social activism project of our own. Make no mistake: This academic term you will do more than read about the Civil Rights Movement; you will experience it.

The course is divided into two parts. In January and February, we will discuss the history of the Civil Rights Movement, discovering its origins and defining its conclusion. After spring break, during March and April, we will consider the Movement's legacy in such issues as affirmative action, racial profiling, and capital punishment. Just as important, we will explore the role of social activism in our own lives, designing an activism project in conjunction with the Ginsburg Center for Community Service and Learning.

During the academic term, you will write two essays in two drafts, one before the trip, one at the close of the class. You will also keep a detailed journal of your experience on the trip and with the activism project, putting your journals in a web site of your own design.

This course is offered concurrently with LHSP 151.008, a trip to visit famous people and places in the Civil Rights Movement over spring break. You do not have to register for LHSP 151 in order to take this course. If, however, you wish to take the spring break trip, you must register for this course (LHSP 113.001).

For a description of the spring break trip, you may wish to visit the web site from last year's trip: http://www.umichstudent.com/getonthebus.

Come join us. It will be a course (and a trip) that you will not soon forget.

Would you like to affect change in a local community? This course will focus on urban neighborhoods: what issues do they face, how could they be planned and designed to better serve residents' needs and promote healthy local ecology? Using a neighborhood in Ypsilanti as a case study, we will examine these issues in a real context.

We will explore the local environmental and human history not only through readings, but also through field trips, discussions with residents and working in conjunction with students from a local middle school. Working in small groups, you will create a vision for the future of this neighborhood. You will communicate your vision through written recommendations that include commuter graphic images. And finally, you will present your vision to community members and local officials. Not only will you be effecting change; you will also be building better writing, computer graphic, and public speaking skills.

Section 001 You Don't Choose Your Family?! Critical Perspectives on Families

Prerequisites & Distribution: (4). (Introductory Composition). A maximum of 20 Lloyd Hall Scholars Program credits may be counted toward a degree.

Credits: (4).

Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

How do you feel about living with your parents in your thirties? Do you often remember how tough it was to be a five-year-old? What do you think of same-sex families? Do you want to have children? How would you balance career and homemaking? These are very personal questions. Yet our answers depend not only on personal inclinations, but also on values and customs shared by others in our society. What can different perspectives (economic, psychological, sociological, historical, and anthropological) tell us about our personal experiences? What can different families teach us about the things we take for granted?

In this course, we will discuss families using insights from different academic disciplines, such as anthropology, sociology, history and cultural studies. We will also look at the ways past societies have defined what is a family and what are its obligations to its members. You will then write five essays about topics such as family portraits and what they conceal, about state policy and their effect on family life and about TV families and their relationship to reality. You will develop writing skills that will allow you to take a critical look at your personal experience and to examine it in the wider context of contemporary and historical societies.

Credits: (4).

Everyone has an opinion about the guilt or innocence of O.J, but how many people have thought about the complicated dynamics of domestic violence that led to the trial of O.J Simpson?

In this class, we will examine the cultural and legal history of domestic and sexual violence and explore how this type of violence affects families, communities, and individuals. We will also explore a variety of issues that many people identify as the sources of sexual and domestic violence, like pornography, prostitution, media representations of women, and gender roles of men and women.

Many sexual assaults that happen on college campuses involve acquaintances and go unreported. We will explore why women are not reporting these assaults. We will also look at how other factors, like alcohol, play a role in campus assaults and examine some of the myths about sexual assault. For example, is acquaintance rape just a matter of women not being forceful enough when saying no?

Assignments will include outside of class activities, five papers, and selected readings.

Section 003 The Quest for a Real Tribe: Breaking Down Stereotypes about Africans

Instructor(s): Jordan Shapiro (jors@umich.edu)

Prerequisites & Distribution: (4). (Introductory Composition). A maximum of 20 Lloyd Hall Scholars Program credits may be counted toward a degree.

Credits: (4).

Do you remember the terrible slaughter in Rwanda when you were a kid? If so, did you see or hear about two "primitive" tribes with strange names, the Hutus and the Tutsis, killing each other? Maybe you learned that these two tribes have hated each other for centuries like the Serbs and the Croats, or the Israelis and the Palestinians? If that's how you remember things you are not alone. When most Americans hear the words "African tribe," they think of uncivilized, poor people living in villages without any clothes on. And, the logic goes, when you hear about "African tribal warfare," it is just "primitive" people acting irrationally, there's nothing you can do about it, that's simply how "they" behave.

Through reading and writing, our class will explore these Western stereotypes that so many Americans have about Africans. Students will probe the assumptions many of us have about tribes and discover how weak or strong a foundation they have in reality. On a broader level, "The Quest for a Real Tribe" will provide students with tools for questioning accepted truths about the way any society or community works. The class will also discover how changing events and circumstances often determine the way people think about their own ethnic identity and affiliation. Our readings will include depictions of village life, works about European colonization in Africa, and coverage of the recent Rwandan tragedy. Armed with realistic, more complex understanding of the changing affairs that govern tribal definition and behavior, you will be able to think beyond the simplistic, popular representations of Africans we so often see in America. On a broader level, "The Quest for a Real Tribe" will provide students with tools for questioning accepted truths about the way any society or community works. The class will also discover how changing events and circumstances often determine the way people think about their own ethnic identity and affiliation.

Section 004 John Wayne Meets GI Jane: How Do We View the Military?

Were Black soldiers cannon fodder in Vietnam? Was the draft a fair means of raising an army? Is today's military culture isolated from, and at odds with, civilian 21st century America?

America has a military institution that broke some enormous class, race, and generation barriers: they racially integrated, a full decade before the rest of the country, African Americans into their corps; they sent an entire generation to college and made the first serious attempt at correcting adult illiteracy; and they made long-lasting efforts at providing a middle-class living to many Americans who would otherwise face spare economic opportunities.

At the same time, the military is said to breed an air of contempt for civilian life and values. It is a culture where anti-gay and sexist rhetoric and violence has been tacitly endorsed among the ranks.

The military at one time or another has been all of these and more. So how has the perspective of the military changed over the past fifty plus years? In this class, we will look at four main issues regarding the military: women in the military; integration of the races; a draft versus volunteer military; and the potential split between military and civilian societies.

Our class will learn about the changing perspectives of the military through assigned readings, class speakers, movies, and taped interviews. The goal of this class is to gain an understanding of how society and the military interact and perceive one another. The above topics will be addressed through assigned articles, chapters from books, taped interviews, class speakers, and movies. The movies viewed will be bi-weekly showings in the evening (bring your snacks). These will include: Born on the Fourth of July, Full Metal Jacket, Courage Under Fire, Dr. Strangelove (How I learned to stop Worrying and Love the Bomb), A Soldiers Story, Saving Private Ryan, and The Longest Day.

Grades will be based on five, five-page papers, including one revised paper. Each of these papers will cover one of the four main issues to be covered in the class. We will also respond to several specific readings through two page response essays. These are to help students think more deeply about each reading.

Tired of writing literary criticism? Wondering how writing skills will fit into the rest of your life? This class will focus on the roles writing will play throughout a person's life from work, where the smooth cover letter will pave your way to a swell job, to public life where a passionate letter to the editor changes the course of public discourse. After writing for the workplace and the public realm, we will explore the more personal aspects of writing, where the process of writing is used as a tool to explore our own thoughts, and to capture our ruminations on the meaning of life. How can writing serve us as a device to think? How can we use writing to leave a legacy?

Writing is a personal endeavor, but it is also public, as the published ruminations of writers show us. We will read examples of each genre of writing, critique them, and then write. Everyone will be expected to contribute to class discussions about assigned readings, and the work of other students. Critical, yet constructive, editing and critiquing skills will be emphasized. Each student will develop an individual voice as different roles in life are considered, and the multi-dimensionality of life is documented through writing.

The class will focus on the process of writing, from our own stream of consciousness, to getting it down on paper, to the rough draft, and then through refining the final version. The connection between thought and pencil will be strengthened, and you will be encouraged to examine and refine your own writing process which you can then use throughout your college career.

"A recent survey indicates that 68% of all college freshmen have smoked marijuana."

"Polls indicate that George W. Bush has taken the lead in New Hampshire."

"Violence in schools has risen 1.3% since the Columbine shootings."

Every day we are assailed with information, from the news media, from advertising... even from professors. But what does it all really mean? A survey of whom? How do the polls obtain their data? Just how do you calculate the rate of violence in schools? Asking questions such as these is not simply blind rejection of authority. Educated skepticism is based on asking the right questions to recognize false arguments, identify meaningless statistics, and uncover biased information. It is a vital tool for analyzing and evaluating information effectively. This course will introduce you to methods of critical thinking and show you how to apply them in a variety of situations in and out of the classroom. These methods will help you to become a better reader: one who knows how to pick out useful information, view it with a critical eye, and retain the most important points. And they will help you become a better writer: one who can identify relevant information, decide what data to include, and present it convincingly. These are tools for survival, and will change the way you view information, both in the college classroom and in the world beyond it.

Do you believe that divine fate, free will, or random chance guides your life? Do you choose who you want to be or does your DNA determine your personality? If you've ever wondered whether you are in charge of your heart and mind or if invisible strings manipulated by god, your culture, your subconscious, your language control your choices, then take this class. We take these questions on our voyage into the deepest recesses of ourselves through two forms of creative expression: poetry and memoir.

We will read poems and memoirs by creative writers who live to write because they write to live writers who work by Hemingway's precept that their root charge is to distinguish what they really think from what their culture would have them think. This "honesty-principle" will guide our trip into ourselves, as we forge our own languages and personal mythologies. After all, how can we live freely, on our own terms, if we don't even know what our own terms are?

You will have two main writing projects: (1) a journal where you will record and interpret your dreams daily; and (2) a polished chapter from your memoir or a collection of poems. During the course of the academic term, you will explore both genres by reading great poets and writers and then emulating the techniques of their craft. You will compose approximately 100 pages of writing by April. You will draft poems and memoirs, exploring each of these forms until you feel confident enough to compose a final prose or poetry project of your own. We will work as a team, workshopping every draft in peer or full-class editing sessions. Because this class is about self-discovery and creative communication, you must be prepared to take risks, battle with your beliefs, and (most importantly) give thoughtful, honest feedback to your peers.

Have you ever tried to describe yourself in twenty words or less or tried to draw a picture of yourself with only twenty lines? If you had to choose a specific color, landscape, and animal to identify with, what would they be? This course will give you the opportunity to explore the self portrait by gathering and combining words, lines, shapes, colors, and images which, when brought together, create an image of yourself. You will receive instruction in basic drawing, painting, printing, and collage to assist you in creating your self-portrait. We will also look at a variety of artists and their expressions through self-portraiture. A $25 lab fee is required which will cover the expense of all materials which are provided for you. No previous experience in studio art is necessary.

J.R.R. Tolkein's Lord of the Rings is one of the most widely read, and beloved, books of the second half of the twentieth century. Perhaps as remarkable as its success is the fact that it was ever written at all. Tolkein was not a writer of fiction by profession, instead he was the notably under-productive (even in Oxford of the 1930s-50s) Rawlinson and Bosworth Professor of Anglo Saxon at Oxford. With few (but excellent) works of scholarship to his credit, colleagues at times wondered what he was doing. The Hobbit appeared almost by accident: he lent the manuscript to a friend who had the flu and she passed it on to a former student of Tolkein's who worked for a publishing house. The Lord of the Rings sprang from the rejection of the work that he really wanted to publish (and never did, in his lifetime). We can now watch him at work on the book through the publication of his early manuscripts, watch him struggling to find a story and then to give it meaning. The purpose of the course is to follow the emergence of The Lord of the Rings from Tolkein's drafts through his many explanations of what it meant, an interpretation that was continuing to evolve up to the end of his life. The existence of so many of Tolkein's papers and letters gives us a chance to watch the author at work, and to explore fundamental questions about what it means to be a writer.
