We need to write a paper about a cultural group and a social problem within that cultural group. I would like it to be about the Iranian culture and the social problem being public killings that children are exposed to, the effects on the children of witnessing these killings, and how the cycle repeats itself and continues to be a social problem.

Then, make objective observations about them.

I​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​n this module, you learned about identity, groups, culture, prejudice, and stereotypes. You will apply that knowledge to the analysis of your advertisements. For this activity, you will focus on making objective observations about the groups and cultures in your advertisements.
PromptUse the provided Module Three Activity Template Word Document to complete this assignment. First, look closely at your four advertisements and identify the groups and/or cultures present in the ads. Then, make objective observations about them. Finally, reflect on how your beliefs, assumptions, and/or values may have impacted your analysis.
You are not required to answer each question below the rubric criteria, but may use them to better understand the criteria and guide your thinking.
Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:
Describe how groups and/or cultures are presented in all your advertisements.
Your analysis is limited to the people in your ads who form groups and/or represent various cultures. Remember, culture is not limited to race and ethnicity. You are not examining settings, logos, taglines, mood/tone, or any other element of the ads. Objectively describe the groups and/or cultures. What characteristics can you objectively observe using your senses?
In this step, do not make interpretations or judgements about the groups and/or cultures.
Describe the representation of stereotypes in all your​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​ advertisements.
Your analysis is still limited to groups and cultures, but now examine your ads for the presence of stereotypes. You should refer to specific details in the ads that communicate a stereotype. If you do not believe stereotypes are present, you must explain why and provide examples from your ads to support your point.
Discuss how your beliefs, assumptions, and/or values may have influenced how you analyzed your advertisements.
As you’ve learned, your subjective perceptions of the social world are influenced by your attitudes and biases. Check in with yourself. Did you make any assumptions about the groups and/or cultures in your ads? Did past experiences influence how you interpreted the presence or absence of stereotypes?
Guidelines for Submission
Submit the Module Three Activity Template. While references are not required, if you reference sources in your responses, they should be cited according to APA style. Consult the Shapiro Library APA Style Guide for more information on citations.
Please use this template for complete this course work

Why or why not?

I​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​n this week’s readings, Shaw (2013) seems to be arguing for a new approach to activism; this week’s Crash Course video emphasizes the changes social media have had on how we interact with the world. The discussion this week asks you to consider social media and how it has affected and been used by social justice movements. In short, t the strategies and tactics employed by social justice movements are changing, for a variety of reasons.
In order to examine the changes to social justice strategies and tactics, we must first describe the previous generations’ methods.
• Introduction: In your own words, what is a social justice movement? Why is it important to study social justice movements?
• What are the 3-4 most important concepts or ideas covered so far in the course?
o For each concept or idea, identify 1) how it is used by social justice movements and 2) why you identified it as one of the 3-4 most important concepts.
• Using the concepts/ideas you identified, how do you think social justice movements have worked in the past? How do you think they’re working now? How much change has happened in how social justice movements operate?
• Conclusion: Given what you have read and discussed so far in this class, do you think that social justice movements have been effective at producing social change? Why or why not? (Note, this is something we will talk about next week, so not looking for you to have answers here—just for you to draw some conclusions based on your experience).
• Include in-text citations in APA format for at least 4 of the required or recommended readings from the first 6 weeks of the course. You may also use scholarly or other credible sources from your own research if you wish.
• Include a references page at the end of your paper with complete APA references for each source that you quoted or paraphrased in your paper.

He wants you to observe your work unit (not the entire organization) unobtrusively for a period of one week (5 work days or until you accumulate information about 10 disputes/disagreements) and record those instances of disputes/disagreements in detail including their nature, persons involved, and any other relevant details pertaining to those disputes or disagreements.

T​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​his project introduces you to the operational part of qualitative research. You are expected to carry out the research and present the results in the form of a research report.
Your employer is interested in improving your work environment. His hypothesis is that disputes and disagreements among workers are the main factors relating to an unhealthy or unhelpful working environment. Since you are a methods expert, your employer has asked you to undertake a study to uncover what types of disputes regarding work occurs on a daily basis, and the type and nature of the persons who are involved in these disputes. He wants you to observe your work unit (not the entire organization) unobtrusively for a period of one week (5 work days or until you accumulate information about 10 disputes/disagreements) and record those instances of disputes/disagreements in detail including their nature, persons involved, and any other relevant details pertaining to those disputes or disagreements.
At the end of the week you are expected to go over all your observations and c​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​ompile a report regarding types and nature of disputes in your workplace. You must present your journal entries for all days you observed in your workplace, as well as the final report. Make sure your final report includes your recommendations to improve the working environment.
Your report must include the following sections with appropriate subheadings.
1. Introduction: The nature of your assignment and a description of your work unit (not the entire organization: Just your immediate working unit)
2. How you organized your study and used unobtrusive observation as your method of observation
3. How you maintained your journal for one week
4. A brief overview of what you observed (this will be a summary of findings from your journal entries)
5. What your journal contents reveal about the assignment with a description of how you arrived at those conclusions
6. Your recommendations to improve the work environment based on your observations
7. Conclusion
8. References

How mass protests end – the atlantic

P​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​art 1
Almost by definition, social justice movements are organized. They have distinct goals, identifiable and charismatic leadership, and clear claims to authority – just as traditional mass media rely on authoritative voices, strong gatekeeping, and a clear view of the source of that media. But Shaw (2013) argues that mass media is less important to people under thirty years of age than social media, and that a new set of media tools are now available.
Watch the video of a 2015 interaction between then-Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and Black Lives Matter activists. (The interaction is in two parts; there’s a transcript posted, but I suggest you watch the video, so you can observe the tone and pacing.) Look for a conflict in the strategies each seems to think will result in social change. Using quotes from the video and the Resources to support your argument, answer the following questions.
• Is Black Lives Matter less centralized than the 20th century social justice movements that we have discussed previously (and that Hillary Clinton may have been a part of)? Why do you think so?
• Does Black Lives Matter use different tactics for direct action than earlier social justice movements? How do their tactics relate to the use of social media?
• Which approach, Clinton’s or BLM’s (as represented here), do you think will be more effective in the next decades? Why?

In the readings, Connor (2020) makes the point that there are a variety of ways that social justice movements may define for themselves whether they are having a positive impact, while Almeida (2019) provides a look at how social scientists determine whether a movement is successful.
Choose one of the social justice movement organizations from this list: Social Movement Organizations for Week 7 Discussion. Then, answer the following questions:
• If you were a member of this organization, how would you define success for this social movement? Why?
• As a social scientist, how would you determine whether this social justice movement has had a positive societal impact? Be sure to describe what measures you would use to make this determination.
• How are your answers to parts 1 and 2 similar? How are they different? Why?

Part 3
The Covid-19 pandemic has caused wide-scale disruptions in societies around the world, and social justice movements have not been immune. As you read this week, social justice movements have had to adjust their tactics and goals in the wake of the Covid-19 crisis. At the same time, the pandemic has exacerbated existing inequalities, providing more space for social justice movements to act. And vaccine and masking mandates have spawned their own sets of protest movements.
Given what you read for this week and what you have experienced living through the Covid-19 pandemic, answer the following questions:
• In your opinion, what are the two most important ways that social movements have had to adjust their tactics in response to the Covid-19 pandemic? Why are these the most important? Be sure to cite the resources to back up your choices.
• What effects has the Covid-19 pandemic had on the effectiveness of social movements? Do you think these are long-term effects? Why or why not?

A​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​re social justice movements conducted on-line vulnerable to misinformation? Find a relatively short, non-academic mass media article online (i.e., NOT a private post on social media, a social media summary of a newspaper article, etc.) that describes one social movement or one event related to a social movement (e.g., a protest). Find a second source that describes the same topic, but from a different perspective. Note, the Allsides website is a great resource to use to find articles on the same issue with different perspectives.
For each, describe your source, then conduct a brief analysis of the authority and perspective. Is the authority and perspective represented within the source clear? Does it seem to be valid? How do you know that these two articles take different perspectives?
G​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​iven what you read this week and your experience analyzing these two sources, what characteristics of a social movement would result in it being represented positively in mass media?
Based on your own experience, how do you think the representations of a social movement in mass media would be different than the way the same movements would be represented in social media? How does social media affect the way mass media coverage of social justice movements is viewed and spread?
