|SOS||SO–SRSophomore–Senior||16||16||Day||F 15 Fall||This one-quarter, student-centered program allows students to study social work as a career option. The program is designed to meet the needs of students with differing interests in the social work field. Because of this, we will create the syllabus as we proceed to include a variety of student interests. Students are encouraged to invite guest speakers, bring videos, and suggest books. The faculty will work with students to ensure that their learning goals are met. Program activities will consist of lectures, guest speakers, seminars, videos, etc. As foundational information, all students will read by Paulo Friere. From there, students will create their own reading lists based on their areas of interest. A history component will introduce students to the historical and cultural experiences of groups served by the social services system, such as women, Native Americans, African Americans, the poor, youth, etc. A cultural competence component will be self-exploratory, enabling students to understand what they bring to a cultural encounter in a service-providing role. Students will use online tools and related readings to gain an understanding of the Indian Child Welfare Act and the cultural factors to consider when handling cases involving Indian children and families.Students may work in groups on projects of common interest. Students are encouraged to present what they learn to the class as well as write reflectively. Students will write at least one poem, based on George Ella Lyon's poem, "Where I'm From." A portfolio of student work will be maintained.||Gary Peterson||Sophomore SO Junior JR Senior SR||Fall||Fall|
