Hang in there! We only have three more weeks of content and “instruction” for seniors!
You’ve spent the past few weeks of online learning focusing on activists and experts as claimsmakers while you look more in depth at a few social problems. For the remaining time we have together, I wanted to shift and have us look at some more hopeful, active key players in the social problems process called “social entrepreneurs.” Through this, we will recognize that we can influence, for the better, social problems we see in the world.
MONDAY & TUESDAY:
Critically read Chapter 1 from the book How to Change the World: Social Entrepreneurs and the Power of New Ideasby David Bornstein. If you do not have access to a printer at home, take electronic notes and upload those as well. It is available in the downloads section.
WEDNESDAY & THURSDAY:
Select one of the following chapters/individuals to read. (They will be posted by Wednesday…scanning takes time.)
Read your selected chapter and write a brief paragraph about your thoughts, impressions, and questions. Post this to turnitin.com by midnight on Friday.
Watch the two videos about social entrepreneurs and issue of plastic pollution.
Brainstorm what social issues you see in the world and potential ways you could engage in social entrepreneurship. (Don’t stop thinking about this, because it is your final project for the last two weeks.)
