My name Casandra Grant
1. Include a title slide, with your title, your name, class, and a visual that represents your topic choice. [1 slide]
2. Select a social problem of your choice, explain why it is a problem, and define the scope of this social problem (is it local, national, international, etc) [1 slide]
3. Explore the history of your social problem. Think about it has changed over time and what major milestones have impacted the problem. For example, if you are exploring racism, you will want to note major Civil Rights legislation, etc. What happen in the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and today? [at least 2 slides]
3. Next, analyze two major ways that the social problem chose currently impacts different groups of individuals.
