Written Application Assignments Weekly written application assignments of 2–4 pages may also be assigned to facilitate the integration of social work knowledge, skills, and values. Written assignments are designed to provide students with the opportunity to apply their newly gained knowledge to professional situations, case studies, or other scenarios. All assignments must adhere to APA guidelines. Journal Assignments In this course you will be asked to provide journal entries on various topics. The intent of the journals is for you to reflect on some of the more difficult topics we address in this course. It should be a safe and confidential outlet for you to explore a little more deeply your thoughts and emotions surrounding that week's topic. Grading Criteria and Total Components of a Grade Course grades will be based on participation (Discussion postings) and completion of assignments listed below. Please refer to the Course Information area of the course navigation menu for specific grading criteria (rubric) for each activity.
