The mid-term is “open book,” meaning that you can look at your notes, books etc. You must complete two essays. You must complete essay 3 but have a choice of essay 1 or 2. You will be expected to make a critical, thoughtful argument about the issue at hand and use historical details and examples to support what you are saying. Given that this is a “take-home,” I expect that the essays are well-written and well-organized. You must cite all your sources according to the APA style guide. Please note that you should not use outside sources for this exam. Students tend to do best when they cite multiple sources from the class (text, articles, podcasts, lectures etc.) Responses should be 1-2 pages single spaced or 2-4 pages double spaced per essay.
The best way to prepare for this exam is to do the reading, listen to the lectures, and participate in the discussions. My experience has been that if students do the work and critically think about the material that is presented, they do well. I am happy to answer any other questions you have about the mid-term at this point. My suggestion is to post them in the virtual office, as I’m sure other students are interested as well.
My strong suggestion is that all students complete the exam in a Word file, save a copy for their records and past their responses into the course page.Please answer two of the following questions. Submit your answers separately.
Question Choice 1
The evolution of American social welfare policy has had a profound effect on the lives of children. Please discuss the historical development of child welfare provision from the colonial period through the Progressive Era. How did the changes in child welfare provision reflect changing perspectives on childhood, the relationship between the family and the government, and family roles (i.e., father, mother, child)? Where appropriate, include a discussion of the perspective of social welfare reformers and pay particular attention to the experience of “vulnerable” children (i.e., children living in poverty, immigrant children, African-American children etc.). Use historical details to support your claim and cite your sources according to APA expectations.
Question Choice 2
Women have played a major historical role in reform efforts. Please discuss women’s contribution to reform efforts from the beginnings of the 19th century through the Progressive Era. What factors have contributed to women’s historical involvement in social reform? How did this involvement shift over time? How did prevailing gender norms and ideologies encourage and/or discourage women’s involvement in these efforts? How did gender based arrangements in work and family life encourage/discourage these efforts? Use historical details to support your claim and cite your sources according to APA expectations.
Question Choice 3
Please define the following terms: social justice, human rights and environmental justice. Based on course content, please provide at least one detailed historical examples of social welfare efforts aimed at promoting each of the three terms above (i.e., one detailed examples per term). Please explain how your example illustrates/reflects a human rights, social justice and/or environmental justice agenda. Use historical details to support your claim and cite your sources according to APA expectations.
