Social Injustice/Justice Website or blog
Choose one of the forms of social justice we have discussed in class. Create a website dealing with the form you’ve chosen. You do not have to use blogger.com, although it is a simple system that is quite easy to learn. Include the following things in blog posts or other formats within your website:
A: Definition: Define clearly the type of social injustice/ justice you will be discussing throughout the webpage. Give 3 general examples/hypothetical situations explaining how an individual’s rights could be violated though this type of social injustice.
B. Links to two news article dealing with they type of social injustice you are reporting on. When you post your link, you should also have an introduction stating the main topic/issue of the article, the points of view involved, and how it is related to social injustice. BBC news is a fine source for finding news articles on the various forms of social injustice; you can’t search for your topic, but you should be able to review headlines and find some related articles. READ the articles for understanding. Don’t just read the headline and assume you understand the issue. This takes a little research on your part.
C. Social Justice Amendment: Consider the ways that your form of social injustice is misused. Write a formally worded Constitutional Amendment designed to limit social abuse. Your Amendment must be well thought out and considerate, not limiting the regular rights of any group, but preventing social abuses.
D. Reflection on our community: Think about Abu Dhabi. Have you seen this form of social justice be violated? What can you do to prevent your form of social injustice within our community? This should be a full, thoughtful reflection.
Grading: Each section is worth equal marks. I’m looking for thoughtfulness within reflection and writing. Spend time on these sections; these are serious topics that touch each of us in different ways and you need to give each section time. Writing should be fluid and use appropriate vocabulary. Streamline your ideas by cutting out boring, repetitive details and using action verbs.
Due Date: Your blog/website address should be emailed to Mrs. Rasmussen no later than Sunday, March 18.
