Write an analysis of values/beliefs in social welfare policy

Discussion Board 1. Analysis of values/beliefs in social welfare policy

 

Competing values and beliefs shape how we define a social welfare problem and how we develop a social welfare policy response to that problem. Choose a current/ historical event that involved a conflicting value or belief and explain how it might have impacted the creation of social policy.

 

Contributions reflect exceptional preparation. Ideas offered are always substantive, provide one or more major insights, and spur discussion in new and interesting directions. Challenges are well substantiated and persuasively presented. If this person were not a member of the class, the quality of the course as a whole would be diminished markedly.

Unsatisfactory Contributor

Contributions reflect inadequate preparation. Ideas offered are seldom substantive; provide few if any insights and never a constructive direction for the class. Integrative comments and effective challenges are absent. If this person were not a member of the class, valuable class time would be saved and the quality of the course improved.
