Ethnic inequality is omnipresent and readily apparent in communities and nations around the world. Issues related to ethnic inequality consistently occupy headline news, disrupt neighborhoods, influence national policies, destabilize borders, and heavily impact the lives of human beings.
To prepare for this Discussion, select a social change movement, policy, or program about which you will address concerns of ethnic inequality. To further research this issue, use a variety of resources, including popular media as well as academic sources. Consider the following: Was the movement, policy, or program grounded in evidence-based research? Was it the result of popular rather than academically-supported information? How might the movement, policy, or program have been improved if it were better informed by scholarly research? Also consider the role of psychology in this social change movement, policy, or program.
By Day 3
Post by Day 3 an evaluation of the social change movement, policy, or program you selected. Indicate whether it was supported by research. Evaluate the role of psychology in addressing this movement, policy, or program. Explain research-based changes that you would make to the program to increase effectiveness in addressing ethnic inequality. Be sure to include citations to any local or popular media information sources used.
Read your colleagues’ postings.
By Day 5
Respond by Day 5 to at least one of your colleagues by offering at least two additional suggestions for increasing the effectiveness of the social change movement, policy, or program your colleague identified. Support your response with citations from this week’s Learning Resources and/or additional research.
Remember to always support your statements with appropriate literature where necessary.
The initial post is due this week by Day 3. The response post is due by Day 5.
