Curriculum and Weekly Schedule

Each student is expected to attend each class, fully, and be on time. In addition, it is expected that, as adult-learners, you will make meaningful and informed contributions to in-class learning through frequent and ongoing participation. Students need to keep the instructor informed of progress and problems. This allows me to keep abreast of how well you are doing withrespect to integrating the learning in the course. It is far easierto deal with situations early rather than to wait until they become problems.

Note: Students and instructor will be given two 15-minute breaks and a one-hour lunch/dinner break per class day. The instructor reserves the right to revise the schedule if necessary to meet the learning needs of the class.

Assignments and Evaluation Criteria

Assignment Overview

All assignments submitted are considered confidential and will not be read by anyone other than the course instructor or his/her designee. Assignments are to be submitted electronically to the instructor through Blackboard or email. Assignments must be typed and comply with the format set forth in the PublicationManual of the American Psychological Association (6th ed.),which is often referred to as the APA Manual. A copy of the APA Manual is available in the Leddy Library. In- class assignments should be electronically submitted to Blackboard before the end of that selected class.

In-class group assignments

Students will work in small groups (3-4 students) to discuss and record answers to questions provided in the class. Questions will relate to the lecture notes, readings from the text, and/or films presented in class. There could be one or more in-class assignments per day. The date of in-class assignments will not be announced in advance. Students are expected to contribute equally to the assignments and each member of the group will receive the same grade on assignments. Please keep the records of your grades insofar as the instructor will not keep copies of the graded papers. No late assignments are allowed for this assignment.

First Paper

This individual assignment requires students to demonstrate their understanding of social justice and change in relation to multiple levels of social work practice (individual/family, group, organizational, community) discussed in weeks 1-4. Students are required to integrate course readings. Further details will be provided in class.

Final Presentation

In groups of 4-5, students will develop a case study and identify and address the social justice issues at each level of social work practice discussed in the course (individual/family, group, organizational, community) and develop an advocacy plan. Students are required to integrate course readings and external academic literature. Further details will be provided in class.

General Instructions/Requirements for Assignments

• Papers must be within the page limits that are given. Any paper that is not within the page limits will receive an automatic grade deduction of one-third letter grade (e.g., B+ becomes B). Papers that are excessively short or long (plus or minus 2 pages of stated page requirements) will not be accepted for evaluation.

• You may not submit the same work (or portions of the same work) for credit in different courses without each instructor’s consent.

• Assignments must be turned in on the date and time it is due. Late assignments will have the mark reduced by one-third letter grade (e.g. A to A-, B+ to B, etc.) per day and will not be accepted after one week. Extensions will be granted only with medical documentation stating that your medical condition prevented you from completing and submitting your paper by the due date, or because of some other severe circumstance, which must be documented and cleared with the instructor.

• The instructor will not accept papers, allow students to take exams, give presentations, or participate in any other type of evaluation in which the student was absent from class and thus unable to receive the material related to the assignment. Students requesting considerations for health, bereavement, or extenuating circumstances should refer to Senate Bylaw 55.

• All assignments will be evaluated using the University Grading Policy. The final grade for the course will be the sum of the weighted grades for each assignment.

• Students’ final grades for the course will not be released to students until they have been approved by the Director of the School of Social Work and the Dean of Graduate Studies and posted on the UWinsite.
