**Adhere to the Formatting & Grammar Guidelines, under the Module tab on the course website. Consider them to be part of the directions for this and all modules. Exercise 1.1: Societal Problem and Societal Categories Your Total Score: __________ (Maximum: 10 points) A. Define the term “societal problem” by quoting a full sentence directly from the Maxwell Manual . (2 points) Part A score: ____ Place quote: “A societal problem is when some aspect of our society, or, as we will call it, “a societal condition,” fails to meet one or more of the six goals.” (Coplin, 2007, pg. 4) B. Choose one of the following societal categories: Crime, Education, Environment, Health, Housing, Jobs and Economic Development, or Poverty. Find, reference, and attach the first page of a newspaper article from a print or electronic source that discusses some aspect of the societal category. Attach the first page of the article behind the entire 1.1 exercise. In a paragraph of no more than 200 words, explain your interest in the societal category and quote one full and relevant sentence from the article. (8 points) Part B score: _____ Write the societal category you choose, exactly as it is stated in the Part B directions: Education Write a paragraph of no more than 200 words explaining why you are interested in that societal category (including newspaper article quote). Start your answer on the next line. I chose the societal category of Education because it is a wide scale issue in the United States at this point in time and it affects the lives of millions in the U.S daily. Education is one of the most important issues, because the education system is responsible for adequately educating students so they can go on to college to receive a degree. Additionally, by acquiring a degree they may join the work force and help make an impact in America. I can relate to this issue because I was fortunate enough to go to a very good public school in my home state of Connecticut. But not all schools meet the minimum academic standards that should be required in our country. That is why it is sad seeing low graduation rates and extremely uneducated students just 2 or 3 school districts over from me. According to the NY Times “Only 7 of 10 ninth graders today will get high school diplomas.” (Levin, Rouse, 2012, pg. 1) By raising academic standards in some failing school districts, I feel there will be a major impact made in the success and performance of the students.
