This assignment utilizes the Macro Planned Change Process to assess the change potential around a specific social issue. The completed paper will cover the tasks of engagement and assessment as described in the text. SECTION 2, due in this module, begins the Assessment Phase.

As a reminder, the Macro Change Project is split into three sections, and each section will be scored for an individual grade. The goal is to have one complete paper at the end and that you are able to use feedback from the instructor to improve future submissions (you may use feedback on Section 1 to strengthen Section 2, etc.). Refer back to the SECTION 1 assignment for a video explanation.

This project covers the breadth of material presented in this course. It requires a thoughtful application of macro concepts and processes. As this is an academic exercise rather than live practice, you must use creativity in presenting hypothetical situations. Please be as realistic as possible, but understand that the assessment and engagement of the macro population require imagination.

SECTION 2: Assessment
1. Identify the problem

You are expected to do a thorough literature review of the problem you have chosen. At this step, a problem statement should be developed that includes the specific dynamics and dimensions of the problem, the impact of the problem on the functioning of the community, the history of the problem in this community, and social policies relevant to the defined problem. Identifying the problem often takes the most time to complete and the most pages to articulate. This section should take about five pages of text.

Be sure to include:

Prevalence and demographic statistics
Statistics on outcomes and severity of the impact of the problem
History of the problem
Relevant social policies
Section 2 should utilize a minimum of four peer-reviewed journal articles that help to understand the macro problem as well as a handful (this varies, assume at least three or four) of sources such as government websites, etc., to help provide your statistics and demographic information.
