SOC- 481: Action Research Project

Action Research Project Proposal
Instructions: This is a three-part assignment, in which you develop a proposal for a viable action research project. The purpose of the proposal is to engage and inform potential funders of the project, as well as other key stakeholder groups invested in social change initiatives. The proposal should clearly and succinctly describe all aspects of your proposed project, clearly explaining what you will do and why.
In PART 3, you will develop a PowerPoint presentation, to include an overview of your proposed project, as well as a completed SWOT Analysis which could potentially be used to guide further development of the proposed project.
In this part of the assignment, you will develop a PowerPoint presentation in which you provide an overview and summary of your proposed community-based action research project. In an actual community setting, the intended audience for this type of presentation would be prospective funding entities and key stakeholders from the community such as representatives from a human service agency, nonprofit organization or university. The presentation should be developed with this audience in mind.
