To prepare for this Discussion:
Choose one of the three social change literature review articles found in this week’s Learning Resources and review the article in detail.
Explore the website that I choose and locate an additional document, video, or webpage that will inform your understanding of the meaning of positive social change. Reflect on any additional sources you find.
Next, write an analytic memo based on the information you gathered from the website and any other documents or websites that might inform your changing impressions about the meaning of positive social change.
Finally, review the media programs related to coding and consider how you will use this information to support this Discussion. Note: In your Excel Video Coding template there is a tab for your website data. Use this tab to place your content and codes for the website.
Prepare a brief explanation of your understanding of the meaning of positive social change thus far. Refer to the additional sources you have reviewed this week, and comment on how they are shaping your experience. Use the data you gathered from your analytic memo to support your explanation.
Be sure to support your main post and response post with reference to the week’s Learning Resources and other scholarly evidence in APA style.
