Cultural awareness | Social Science homework help

In this unit, we consider the experience of women. Regardless of their race, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, women continue to confront sexism, sexual harassment, and issues related to inequality. Even where there are laws against it, sexual discrimination and harassment continue to occur. Many women continue to receive lower salaries than men, experience greater psychosocial issues relative to the aging process, and disproportionately experience victimization and symptoms of depression.
For this unit, you are encouraged to examine both your assumptions and biases related to women and women’s experience of cultural oppression. You will examine identity issues and how women are affected by sexism and gender bias. We will explore why women struggle to establish a firm identity and claim their power in a male-dominated workplace.

Project Outline and Literature Review

Overview

Entering an academic conversation involves many steps. Two of the most fundamental of these steps involve reading material in the field and forming a perspective on what you have read. Academics demonstrate their perspective on the material in the field by composing a literature review.
The purpose of this assignment is to assist you in gathering pertinent research for your final project. Begin by developing an outline that presents categories such as the background, theory, and challenges of the cultural conflict that you identified for your research topic. Then complete a literature review for each category. In brief, a literature review covers multiple areas on the topic including:

  • Key concepts.
  • Existing theories.
  • What is known.
  • What is not well understood.
  • Why it is important to study this topic.
  • What research methods seem most appropriate.

A literature review traces the genealogy of a topic in the field; it notes the history of the topic and the notable perspectives of others in the field who have addressed the topic. The purpose of a literature review is to demonstrate that a writer has insightfully and critically surveyed relevant literature in order to convince a targeted audience that this topic is worth addressing. The literature review is not intended to report the literature, but instead to synthesize it.
By successfully completing this assignment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the following course competencies and assignment criteria:
Competency 2: Analyze individual cultural competencies.
Competency 3: Analyze culturally and developmentally appropriate intervention strategies.

  • Analyze findings on intervention strategies published by cultural and ethnic researchers.

Competency 4: Apply theories, methods, and research in cross-cultural awareness.

  • Interpret scholarly resources for cultural theories and practices relevant to the proposed topic.
  • Examine the research on challenges facing a population.

Competency 5: Communicate in a manner that is scholarly, professional, and consistent with expectations for members of the human services profession.

  • Communicate in a professional manner using scholarly resources that support the analysis through clear, concise, well organized, and grammatically correct writing that incorporates appropriate APA style and conventions.

Assignment Instructions

Complete a 3–5 page literature review that cites 8–10 recently published (within the last five years), peer-reviewed resources that inform your research topic. It will be helpful to consider making an outline for your final paper. The literature review should minimally include:

  • Restatement of the cultural conflict identified in your Unit 2 assignment.
  • Discussion of the population or populations.
  • Theories and research that explore the problem.
  • Challenges facing the population or populations.
  • Identification and analysis of personal competencies.

While you may find additional resources to use in your final submission, these sources should provide a conceptual framework of theories and strategies for your intervention.
Your literature review should cover the elements above and provide enough detail for your instructor to assess the relevance of your research and the application of the research to develop an evidence-based intervention plan for your project.
Submission Requirements

  • Written communication: Written communication is free of errors that detract from the overall message.
  • APA formatting: Resources and citations are formatted according to APA (6th edition) style and formatting.
  • Length: 3–5 double-spaced, typed pages.
  • Font and font size: Times New Roman, 12 point.

Unit 10 Course Project and Reflection : Introduction

During this course you have focused on topics that influence workplace effectiveness and communication. You examined issues in multiculturalism, including ethical and legal considerations and racial, ethnic, and cultural identity developmental models. You then applied them to the examinations of specific cultural groups such as African, Native, Asian, and Hispanic Americans and groups with the primary diversity characteristics of gender, age, sexual orientation, and disability. At the end of the course, you had the opportunity to study and apply theories about communication with diverse work groups and managing in a diverse workplace.

 

Exploring an Ethnic or Multicultural Challenge Assignment

Overview

As professionals who are seeking graduate education to enhance leadership ability, we are conscious of our responsibility to develop awareness and skills that will assist us in the world of work. We recognize that we participate in a large, multicultural workforce that demands a cultural understanding of our co-workers. Even if we are well intentioned, the potential for miscommunication and conflict always exists.
This final project is your opportunity to demonstrate the cultural competencies that you have developed in this course. In Unit 2, you identified an area of cultural conflict for your course project and addressed your current level of cultural competence. In Unit 5, you conducted a literature review to serve as a theoretical foundation on which to base conclusions for the course project.
In this final part of the project, you will further define key elements of the issue or issues. You will then apply theories on cultural awareness you have studied to analyze the issues defined in your problem statement to make intervention recommendations.
By successfully completing this assignment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the following course competencies and assignment criteria:
Competency 1: Analyze the influence of culture on attitudes, values, perception, human behavior, and interpersonal relations.

  • Examine the ethical considerations for an intervention.
  • Analyze how the intervention methodology might be interpreted by various stakeholders.

Competency 2: Analyze individual cultural competencies.

  • Analyze issues defined in a problem statement.

Competency 3: Analyze culturally and developmentally appropriate intervention strategies.

  • Analyze an appropriate intervention recommendation.

Competency 4: Apply theories, methods, and research in cross-cultural awareness.

  • Apply concepts, theories, and research on culture and ethnicity to a multicultural conflict.

Competency 5: Communicate in a manner that is scholarly, professional, and consistent with expectations for members of the human services profession.

  • Communicate in a professional manner, using concise, well organized, and grammatically correct writing that incorporates appropriate APA style and conventions.

 

Assignment Instructions

Your required readings, discussion questions, and assignments in this course have been preparing you for this final course project. Here is a roadmap that will help you organize and complete this unit.
Begin by rereading the first requirement in your Unit 2 assignment. Here is where you described a fictional or real-life, work-related conflict that was complicated by cultural differences. You were asked to discuss the cultural identity of the participants, provide a clear statement of the conflict and research question, add any relevant details leading up to the conflict, and share your rationale for the relevance of this scenario. This information needs to be clearly stated at the beginning of your final project, so the reader understands the scope of the problem and is engaged by the topic. Do not simply borrow your words verbatim from Unit 2. Instead, use economical language and synthesize ideas about the cultural problem that you are investigating.
Important: The second part of the Unit 2 assignment asked you to address your own cultural competencies. Do not include this information in your final project. Instead, use your self-assessment as a baseline when you reflect on your personal and professional growth in the Unit 10 discussions.
You may have constructed an outline for your paper when you were writing your Unit 5 literature review assignment. If so, consider any revisions you might want to make. If you have not yet made an outline, you are encouraged to do so, as it will keep you organized as you move forward.
Review your literature again. Consider what you have learned from the resources you found, and think about how you will apply it to your topic. Have you have found at least 10 current (written in the last five years) books or peer-reviewed journal articles? Weave your literature review into the various sections of your paper. Add to your references if you feel that you have a gap in the professional literature.
In this assignment you will:

  • Analyze issues defined in the problem statement.
  • Analyze an appropriate intervention recommendation.
    • What interventions strategies or theories are appropriate for the scenario? Analyze why they are appropriate.
    • Who should initiate and conduct the intervention?
    • What managerial skills and tools might be required?
  • Analyze how the intervention methodology might be interpreted by various stakeholders.
  • Examine the ethical considerations for an intervention.
    • Does the intervention ask stakeholders to adapt or change in some way? If so, are those changes ethical?
    • If they are not asked to adapt, what are the ethical implications of not doing so?
    • What personal biases or prejudices should you be aware of, as a person making the intervention recommendation?
  • Apply concepts, theories, and research on culture and ethnicity to a multicultural conflict.

Submit your final project into the assignment area.

Submission Requirements

  • Written communication: Paper should communicate professionally with writing that is clear, effective, and persuasive about ideas and positions presented in the paper. These ideas and positions must be relevant in the profession and discipline.
  • APA formatting: Resources and citations are formatted according to APA Manual (6th edition) style and formatting.
  • Length: Paper should be at least 10 pages but no more than 14 pages, including the references but excluding the title page and the table of contents.
  • References: Paper should include a minimum of 10 references from peer-reviewed journal articles or books that have been written in the last five years.
  • Format: Paper should have a title page, a table of contents, the text, and references. References are listed on a separate page.
