Total Points: 120 Due Date Please see the due dates below. The Late Assignment Policy applies to this assignment. Requirements This paper will be in APA format, Times New Roman 12-point font, at least five pages, including title page and reference page. References to the textbook are not necessary; provide evidence of your analysis of a behavioral problem using academic articles and investigative journalism. Your force field analysis charts should be integrated into the paper using Word document tools. For the RPS and Social Thinking sections, use these prompts: Rational Problem Solving Decide on a goal or target: Gather information about the problem: Generate alternative solutions: Assess and compare alternatives: (Force Field Analyses go here) Choose the best solution: Develop a strategy or plan of action: Implement the strategy: Evaluate the results: Social Thinking Eliciting cognitive dissonance: Accessing feelings: Engaging values: Stimulating cognition: Obtaining information: Internal reflection: Use imagination to envision: Move to action: Closing the Circle: Grading Criteria and Directions Your paper will be graded on your ability to apply the steps of both Rational Problem Solving and Social Thinking to a current social problem. Having contemplated these steps for the effects of racism on African American neighborhoods, choose another issue that places vulnerable families and communities at risk. Trace behavioral problems like violence against Native American women, or low academic achievement related to contaminated drinking water back to their sources in organizational, institutional or systemic deviance. After introducing the problem using current statistics and analysis of root causes, follow the format we used for Rational Problem Solving and Social Thinking and answer all prompts. At the appropriate place, insert a Force Field Analysis for two alternative plans to address the problem. Estimate the weights of each driving and restraining force, calculate the overall power and direction, and explain why you are choosing one alternative over the other. Then conclude with a discussion of how you see RPS and Social Thinking complementing each other in working toward solutions to this problem. Category Points Description Analysis of social problem 24 Using current statistics and sources, explain how the problem is rooted in systemic deviance from social goods. RPS approach 24 Using the steps defined in the text and module, identify the goals, objectives, tasks, tactics, targets and strategy you will use, as well as how you will evaluate your success. Force Field Analyses 24 Using the textbook example on page 117, make a chart for two different solutions and compare their relative advantages from qualitative and values-based perspectives. Social Thinking approach 24 Using the steps defined in the text and module, respond to all prompts. Imagine you are leading a task group and design Open-Ended Questions to heighten dissonance and elicit responses. Conclusion 12 Discuss how you will integrate the strengths of RPS and Social Thinking to optimize results while empowering the community. Clarity and Format 12 Writing is objective in tone, clear, with no grammatical errors, and follows APA format with relevant references.
