In the Social Sciences it is necessary to make connections between what is happening in the world and what you are learning in your course. You may be used to taking more traditional exams online. In addition to a short essay exam reviewing the textbook, you will need to complete several small assignments for a Final Project that builds upon each other to help you tie in the following key course concepts:
Civil Liberties & Rights
The role of Supreme Court decisions in policymaking
Civil Rights Legislation
What Do You Have to Do?
You have been asked to create a 3 double-page report on an underserved population, detailing the case law and legislation that has been passed related to the community/group you have chosen. You will need to have at least 3-5 external resources to complete your paper.
This report should include the following:
Definition of your community
Description of at least 2 Supreme Court cases and/or laws that have affected your community (either positively or negatively)
Your assessment of the current status of your community (think about whether anything else may be needed to ensure equality for this group)
Citations properly formatted
The first parts of your final paper will be graded based on the completion of the assignment and will help you do the research for your final paper. The final assignment will be graded based on the analysis of your findings and must include key course concepts from the Greenberg-Page text.
What communities can you choose?
Some examples of groups you can examine include:
Minority Group (African-American, Hispanic, Asian-American, Native American, etc.)
