To complete this assessment, you will:
Identify three social problems, such as child labor or tenement housing, discussed in the lesson and research ways in which government regulations or organizations have helped address these issues. Use this information to complete the Social Problems and Solutions Chart.
Explore the Interview Learning Object to learn more about the steps involved in conducting an interview. Select a community worker or volunteer to interview about one of the social issues you researched. Be sure to use the Interview Learning Object as a guide to learn how to contact a volunteer and conduct an interview.
Prepare questions for your interview. You will need at least 10 questions. Eight questions have been provided. Create at least two additional questions to round out the list.
Set up a phone or in-person interview with your volunteer, and conduct your interview at the scheduled time. Remember, if you are meeting your volunteer in person, you should arrange the meeting in a public place and with your parent or guardian’s permission.
Create a written report or presentation that reflects the information obtained from the interview. You may write a traditional report or use Web 2.0 tools to create a unique presentation. Your product should explain a social issue that the interviewee cares about and describe the reasons, rewards, and impacts of the interviewee’s volunteerism.
