Conditions and Considerations
Brief Activity DescriptionPenny Stallings, an organizer of Woodstock, will lecture on the significance of the event in our English/History 430 class on "The Cultural Revolutions of the 1960's and 1970's." Woodstock was the pinnacle of the Youth Movement, and Ms. Stallings discusses how Woodstock articulates the achievement and limits of that movement. Both our English and History students learn about oral history, determining validity, the history of that period, and living history.
Learning Outcomes and Relation to IRA to Course OfferingsEnglish/History 430

This lecture is open to all students and community, and in the past has drawn many who are interested in Woodstock. It's an opportunity to examine a piece of history recent enough to evaluate and understand through the viewpoints of people who were there. Ms. Stallings is our lead lecturer - and brings with her the analysis she did for PBS' McNeil Lehrer News Hour - but others from our community, who were also at Woodstock, attend as well and offer multiple perspectives. This has been our most popular class, and has become a kind of tradition at CSUCI, with word of mouth drawing other students.
Description of Assessment ProcessWe ask our students to write a reflection after the event and this year we'll send those along with the assessment report. The reflections are always immensely enthusiastic and express gratitude for what they speakers have brought to them. Several students write about this event for their term paper and use Ms. Stallings as a resource.

Target Audience/Student MarketingStudents in the class are required to attend. We let all English and History students know about the lecture via email.
Bring Benefit to CampusI'm not sure what this question means. The English History 430 class is a loved course, and this lecture is one reason why. Many of our students tell other students to take the class. They discuss it with their peers.
