Community Based Learning Project
Typically, students would do 10 hours of community based learning (volunteer work) during the semester. However with the current state of things most places are not accepting volunteers. Also for your safety I do not want to encourage any face to face volunteer work at this time. So, for this project, students are going to think about the needs of their community. Students will consider needs in their community and write proposal addressing a way that need can be alleviated. For example, have you seen a big increase in homelessness? What about child abuse? Or crime? Or Poverty? ANYTHING that you determine is a social need or social problem in your community can be addressed in this project.
Pease make sure that you watch the video on Canvas that explains this project. This is an involved project, one that you cannot complete successfully last minute
Please follow the instructions below and type this project up in the order of the topics. Students can choose to do this as a word document OR as a power point if you wish. As long as I see the answers and parts to the project, the format is up to you. If you do a word document you do NOT have to write it in paper form, so to speak. You CAN number as you go.

Think about the current state of things in your community. What are some problems people in your community face in your community? Poverty? Crime? Transportation issues? Please list at least 5 areas of concern that you have for your community. Feel free to talk to family and friends (please observe your local social distancing, face covering ordinances etc. per the current WCHD recommendations) about what they feel are issues. Keep in mind we are looking for areas of concern but ones where a group might be able to make an impact and lessen the effect of the issue.

Pick one of those areas of concern that you mentioned. Tell me more about it. For example, if you said people do not have access to bathroom tissue, tell me more about that (Don’t use that! That is just a crazy example) What is the problem? Why is it a problem? How are people reacting to the problem? What is felt by people because of this problem? Feel free to talk to family and friends (please observe your local social distancing. face covering ordinances) about how they feel about it. Really THINK about what is going on. Think deeper than just surface issues (for example with the lack of bathroom tissue example, is it REALLY lack of it or is it something that is a bigger concern). MANY times the issue or area of concern is outside of the topic in front of you. THINK it through. This should be a fairly long section – at bare bare minimum a page but more like 2 pages is definitely a possibility ( but DON’T ramble!)

Now, think about what a group, you etc. could do to help FIX or temporarily make this situation better. This will be a challenge for you. REALLY THINK about what would make this better. Think outside of resources at hand. For example think about it as if you had a little bit of money and people and time you needed to make something work, what would you do. Do NOT plan this as if you have a million dollars and 500,000 volunteers. Go at this as if you are broke but see a need and that you will be able to recruit several people to help plan and implement your event. Again for example if the bathroom tissue issue lead you to the conclusion that people are afraid of lack of supplies what could you do to HELP with supplies ( Not just purchasing things ). What could a group do to say get donations, distribute them etc.

Plan that event. As you plan what is your goal? What is your mission statement? This will help to keep focus on what your intention is of the event. What is the issue? What is the solution as you see it? What needs to happen? Donations? Purchases? Where is the money coming from? Who is your target group that you will serve? How will you get information out to those who need it? If something tangible how will you get, say that bathroom tissue, to people? Where will you hold your event? Do you need permission from say a property owner to hold your event there? What are you going to do about traffic? Can people get out of their cars or are you going to require that people stay in their cars? What about masks and social distancing? Safety of customers/clients as well as volunteers? Where will you get volunteers?

REALLY think about this as if you are actually going to hold this event. Think about ALL avenues, ALL issues, etc. etc. etc. Go as FAR out of the box as you like. Be completely creative. Come up with a new idea. Take bits and pieces of other events you may know of to create a new one. This will be the longest section – multiple multiple pages. 5 or more is definitely a possibility. I might suggest that you list each question, say in bullet format, and address each one, as part of your grade will be did you answer everything but also did you do more than just answer the above questions.

If you happen to have been involved in some sort of event since COVID 19 shelter in place, etc. issues you can use it BUT I want to see what you would change, what would have made it better, what were some issues or areas of concern. Really delve into improving something that has happened already.

Have fun with this but also really think about the impact you are able to have on your community. Be creative. Be specific. REALLY plan this as if, say, a group on Rockford University campus wants to help the community and they asked you to plan it. Hey you never know! Maybe your group CAN implement your idea, when it is safe!
As long as you clearly have thought this out, you have all parts (numbers 1-4 above plus all questions answered), you are giving me more than just a blanket simple answer etc. you will earn all of the points. Don’t forget that you need to upload your completed project (whether a word document or power point- or something else? Let me know!) by the due date. Creativity is 10000% encouraged!

Please choose one of the following prompts and respond to it in no less than 300-400 words. In your response, you must fully answer all aspects of the question and support your answer with reference to course materials (textbook, supplementary readings, videos, etc).

Many social scientists and theorists have observed that whiteness is typically not a relevant form of identity for most white Americans, whereas other racial groups closely identify with their race. Given what you now know about social stratification, social identity, and culture, why do you think whites in America typically do not consider their race relevant to how they understand themselves?
In America, people often believe that success is based on merit – effort, talent, and so on. Evidence, however, says otherwise. Considering the sociological theories and concepts you can now work with, why do you think members of societies hold true to beliefs that are not supported by evidence? What purpose might these beliefs serve for people and their societies? How might it be possible to change people’s minds?[supanova_question]

Gender Bias

Sociology Question Sociology Assignment Help For the first part of your final project, the critical analysis portfolio, you will select an issue or event in diversity and critically analyze it through the four general education lenses: history, humanities, natural and applied sciences, and social sciences. By viewing the issue/event through these lenses, you will gain insight into how the intersectional nature of diversity affects society, as well as both your own individual framework of perception and the choices, attitudes, and behaviors of others in the world around you.
For this second milestone, due in Module Four, you will analyze your issue/event from Milestone One through the history and humanities lenses. This will provide you with a chance to practice analyzing your issue/event through these lenses and receive feedback on this practice attempt.
