Gned 500 Assignment

GNED 500: Self-Reflective Social Action Model Reflection Individual Assignment - 10% Use the social problem focus of your social analysis report group assignment to complete an individual social action reflection using the Self- Reflective Social Action Model (pg.85). Your reflection submission should be 400 to 600 words. The goal is for you to reflect on your own personal learning about the issue, how did you understand the issue, has thisunderstanding changed in any way? How? Do you plan to do anything differently? Has your behaviour and or actions changed in any way? Consider these questions in the contextof the social action and social analysis concepts of the course. As you will recall from the text, this model suggests that our understanding of social problems are shaped by anumber of factors: our experiences, our ideologies and our relationships with institutions/structures of power and the hegemonic discourses that circulate in these spaces to shapeour views and perspectives. Often times, as our worldview is challenged by facts, and social analysis we may experience cognitive dissonance (pg. 84-89), this is what the primaryfocus of this assignment should be. Start with the relevant Social Problems questions that apply to you located at centre of the model (pg. 85) and briefly summarize how you viewed the social problem beforebeginning your analysis for the report assignment. Next move to the On-going self-analysisbox, here again briefly respond to relevant questions from your perspective. Continuethe reflection by responding to relevant questions in each section of the model to develop a complete personal reflection on the social problem of focus.

We strongly encourage you to schedule library and research skills instruction classes for your students. The librarians will customize sessions that focus on a particular assignment or research need. All classes are based on the ACRL Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education, adopted by Centennial College Libraries.

Contact a librarian at your campus to arrange a class. 

Examples of popular classes include:

  • Introduction to the library catalogue, e-resources, and effective search strategies
  • Critical media literacy sessions for GNED 500: Global Citizenship
  • Advanced health science research skills for nursing students
  • Finding information about current events and issues in tourism
  • Information sources for the biotechnology research paper
  • And many more...

See Library Class Handouts for examples of handouts from recent sessions.

When and where?

Most library sessions take one hour, but for more advanced research skills instruction, the classes may run for two hours or more. Depending on the campus, you may be asked to bring your students to the library computer lab, or the librarian may visit your classroom. At the Progress and HP campuses, the library sessions are usually held in the library computer labs.

We recommend that you book the library session at least two to three weeks ahead of time. Requests may be accommodated within a week's notice, depending on lab availability and the librarians' schedule.

What will your students gain from a library session?

The amount of information available to students through the library's e-resources and over the Internet is truly overwhelming. We teach your students the skills they need to search for information effectively and efficiently:

  1. the technological skills needed to use the library as a gateway to information

  2. the critical and evaluative skills needed to select appropriate resources

  3. how to avoid plagiarism and cite sources in APA or MLA style

Contact a librarian at your campus to arrange a class.
