reflection paper

I need help with a Writing question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.

Reflect on a personal experience where you encountered some type of active or passive oppression related to power and privilege. The oppression may have been cultural and/or institutional, and may have taken place in an educational or professional setting.

Write about the experience and describe how it shaped your understanding of how the dominant group possesses the power and privilege to actively or passively oppress individuals. If you cannot identify a personal experience, then write about an experience of someone you know or something you have seen in the news. Be sure to refer to Johnson’s (2005) examples of privilege and consider the following concepts to guide your thinking: race/ethnicity, gender, class, sexual orientation, able bodiedness or disability, and religion.

The paper should include the following:

  • General description of the event (first person)
  • Analysis of how the event demonstrates issues of power, privilege, and oppression(third person)
  • Reflection of how your positionality (i.e., opinion and understanding of how the dominant group possesses power and privilege) was changed or reinforced by the event( first person)
  • * Application of Johnson’s (2005) diversity terminology(third person)
