This assignment provides you the opportunity to begin early construction of your website by building a foundation from which to continue development during the remaining weeks of this course and finalize in the Week Six Final Project. To prepare for this assignment, review the website creation options listed in the Recommended Resources for Week Two and the Week Two Instructor Guidance. Next, begin creation of your website using the content and written communication instructions below.
Note that for the two topics learned thus far; poverty and child protection, only pages with placeholders are created. Summarized information and artifacts pertaining to these topics will only be evaluated in the Week Six Final Project. However, at any point during the course, you may consult the Final Project requirements and add things at your own pace. Use the Grading Rubric to review your assignment before submission to ensure you have met the distinguished performance for each of the components described below. For additional assistance, please contact the instructor using the Ask Your Instructor discussion.
In a single-page Word document, include a link to your website and the title of your website. Also include your definition of at risk. Submit your assignment to the course for evaluation.
Second part: Separate but follows first assignment
Throughout this course, you have had the opportunity to examine various populations at risk and learn about strategies and resources to support these groups. You have reviewed many websites that offer services for a variety of populations at risk as well, which have hopefully served as models for your website that is finalized for this Final Project. In the Final Project, you will demonstrate mastery of the five course learning outcomes by completing the website resource you have been designing throughout the course that describes what you learned about children and families at risk as well as a specific population you selected as a focus during Week Five. Additionally, the website you create here may be an effective artifact to include in your MAED program eportfolio during your enrollment in the Capstone, EDU695, and will likely be useful to you as a resource for future professional work with your chosen population at risk from this project.
