Learning Goals and Assessments

- To strengthen collaboration and presentation skills.
- To draw on sociological concepts and materials to develop a potential solution to their social problem.
- Students collaborate to create a presentation documenting and analyzing a social problem.

- Students present their proposed solution in their presentation, and they are assessed on its applicability and feasibility.
