identify a geographic community and conduct a study of the community.
For this key assessment assignment, students will identify a geographic community and conduct a study of the community.
Identity communities (or target populations) are not to be subjects of this paper. The emphasis must be on a geographic community that can be visited, observed, and researched as municipality. The geographic community should have both an easily researched social strength, as well as an easily researchable social problem area.
In the process of identifying the assets and needs of the community, you will make recommendations for community development and developing a community organizing strategy to address a particular problem. The product will be a written plan that will be developed by the student. Netting et al. (2019) is an excellent resource for beginning this assignment. The paper should be formatted according to APA requirements. An abstract, an introduction, a conclusion, reference page, and headings are all expected for this paper.
