Final Project Rough Draft (Optional)

Final Project

For the Final Project, you will synthesize the knowledge you have gained about diversity throughout this course and use it to make recommendations to professionals who work with children and adolescents. You have chosen one diversity topic on which to focus for your paper. Consider what factors related to diversity professionals should consider when communicating, instructing, and supporting the development of children and adolescents.

To prepare:

  • Consider the role of diversity in childhood and adolescence and how individual characteristics of diversity could positively or negatively impact development and learning.
  • Revisit your approved topic from Week 2, along with the resources developed throughout the course, as the focus of your paper.
  • Consider the constituencies to which social change can be applied.

Submit an 8- to 10-page paper on the topic approved in Week 2 using the resources developed in the course. Develop recommendations for professionals (e.g., teachers, counselors, social workers, or other professionals) who will be working with children or adolescents in a variety of capacities. Be sure to include the impact of the environment in which these professionals will be working (e.g., classroom setting, neighborhood, community mental health). Be sure to remember that any one characteristic does not operate in a vacuum. Therefore, include and discuss how other characteristics of diversity impact your main topic for this population.

Three projects have been uploaded that can assist with assignment. Please view previous assignments that have been uploaded.
