Contemporary Social Issues Assignment Help

For this week’s assessment, you will create an audio or a video presentation that examines from various points of view a contemporary social issue you selected.

As the host of a television show (60 Minutes, VICE News) or radio program or podcast (Fresh Air, This American Life), you have been assigned to deliver an informative, 10-minute segment on the contemporary issue that you selected. As part of your segment, you will incorporate insights from two or more disciplines or professions, such as nursing and social work, or marketing, psychology, and biology. (These are only examples, and you should choose from professional insights that will best inform your argument.)

The intended audience for your segment is an intelligent but perhaps uninformed public, so this is your opportunity to engage them in an issue that matters to you.

In this assessment, you will demonstrate ethical reasoning by making sound decisions, taking appropriate actions with an awareness of the rights and well-being of others, and identifying the impact of personal and professional behavior.

Produce the segment as an audio podcast or radio show.

As with the video option, Kaltura is an excellent format for audio. However, you may also record audio over a PowerPoint presentation (with simply text and/or images on individual slides).

If you would like to use another technology to create your video, please ask your instructor.

You must also include one of the following:

A PowerPoint presentation with highlights from the segment.

A transcript of the segment in a Word file or other document.

The PowerPoint or transcript of the segment should include APA-style citations and references.
