Learning is enhanced when you take time to reflect on the process. This week, you will have a journal that asks you to discuss your thoughts in relation to the topic for the unit. Your reflection and writing will help with your understanding of the content covered.
Your response to this journal should be clear, concise, and organized. The expression of information must be well written and original, with few or no errors in format and mechanics.
You have learned in this unit that gaining an understanding of the community is an important aspect of community organizing.
Please respond to the following questions:
What social issue are you most passionate about?
If you were seeking to organize a coalition based upon a cause that is important to you, what resources would be most beneficial as you strove to garner support and get the word out to your community?
Some organizers choose to send out surveys to understand the community, while others prefer to engage in meaningful discussions with residents. Please share what you would do to identify the issues of greatest concern within a community.
