Throughout this course, you have focused on a specific social issue for which you have a passion, a personal interest, or a concern. You have researched this issue, considered potential solutions and challenges to those solutions, and developed a publicity campaign proposal designed to encourage support for this issue. In completing these activities, perhaps your interest in extending your involvement in this issue has grown, and an even stronger activist spark has been ignited.
This week, you pull this information together to create a Final Presentation for your Course Project that you will share with colleagues in the Week 6 Discussion Forum. This provides an opportunity for collective review of ideas, insights, and practical action steps.

Project: Final Project
Walden University envisions a distinctively different 21st-century learning community where knowledge is judged worthy to the degree that it can be applied by its graduates to the immediate solutions of critical societal challenges, thereby advancing the greater global good.
—Walden University’s vision
What is your vision for social change? What outcomes would you like to see regarding the social issue on which you have focused during this course? What might you be able to contribute to the realization of those outcomes? This Assignment provides an opportunity for synthesizing the information you have researched and the ideas you have formulated regarding your social issue. It also provides an opportunity for peer review and collective comments in Week 6.
To prepare for this Project:
Review the Final Project section of the Course Project Overview and Guidelines located in this week’s Learning Resources.
Determine the format you would like to use for your presentation: PowerPoint or essay.
Consider the scope of what you have learned regarding your social issue. What insights have resonated? What inspiration have you drawn from examples in the Learning Resources? What can one person do to make a difference on this issue? What can many people do?
With all of this in mind, consider actions you can take that might impact this issue. What is the objective of each action? What might be gained?
BY DAY 7
Develop a Final Presentation in the form of a PowerPoint presentation (a minimum of 10 slides, not including title page or references) or essay (3–5 pages, not including cover page or references).
Include the following:
Summary of the problem
Key actions that you as an individual can take
Objectives/desired outcomes of each action
Expected objectives for the immediate future and 5–10 years from now
The following should be evident in the Final Project:
Research (using sources to formulate the presentation)
Explanation (articulating the issue or problem to be addressed)
Analysis (looking at the connections between the facts and assumptions when discussing your issue)
Stance (taking a definitive perspective and calling for specific goals)
Understanding (acknowledging any counter perspectives or problems related to proposed solutions)
Implementation (listing concrete steps—both personal and collective—that might be taken to solve the problem)
For both the PowerPoint presentation and essay format, be sure to support your statements with APA Style in-text citations.
