Assignment: Capstone Project Part II: Needs Assessment

 

People often use advocacy to create positive change for society. Advocacy represents the strategies devised, actions taken, and solutions proposed to influence change for the betterment of society. The key to successful advocacy and creating a successful strategic plan is to conduct a needs assessment to determine the needs or priorities for a given agency, organization, or community.

A needs assessment is a systematic way of determining the gap between what an agency, organization, or community has and what is desired to meet the needs of individuals, groups, communities, or societies. The needs assessment will reveal whether there may be unmet services. It can then provide information about those needs and help inform your planning to meet them. The needs assessment also consists of planning who you need to target, how you will effectively gather new data, and/or how you will use existing data to inform your planning decisions.

To prepare: Think about the needs of the agency, organization, or community that you identified as being the focus for your strategic plan. Consider how you might collect data from stakeholders regarding met and unmet needs. By Day 7

The Assignment (2–3 pages): Outline/describe steps you would take to conduct a needs assessment. State which stakeholders you would contact and why you would contact each. Develop a stakeholder survey related to your professional or societal issue. The survey must be at least 10 questions. Provide a justification for each question on the survey. Provide a rationale for the type/format of questions on the survey. State how you would vary items on the survey based on the role of the stakeholders who would complete it (administration, leadership, staff, recipient of surveys).

Support your Application Assignment, citing all resources in APA style, including those in the Learning Resources.

Website Project: Let’s Explore the World through Music

In this project, you will create an informative website featuring the traditional music of a specific non-Western culture that is not covered in Chapter 8 of the course text. (Note that the term “world music” in the context of this assignment refers to music that is not based in the Western tradition of music. See below for more information about choosing a topic.) A link to your completed website will be posted to the WK8 “Let’s Explore the World through Music” Forum.

You will be building your website using www.wix.com, which is free and easy to use. Wix features user-friendly drag and drop technology, so you can easily change or customize your website. All that is required is to set-up an account using your email address and password. Here is a beginner’s guide for creating Wix websites. There is also a good video explanation of building a website with Wix. Wix also has an excellent Help Center to address any questions you have while creating your website. 

The website should include the following:

1.     A summary of the chosen culture including a short history. 

2.     A brief explanation of some beliefs and traditions of the culture. 

3.     Description of the instruments used in that culture’s music. 

4.     Explanation of some of the key attributes of the culture’s music, such as melody, harmony, timbre, texture, rhythm and form.

5.     Specific Introduction to one piece of music from the culture. Include at least one example of the music, such as through linking to YouTube performances.

The above elements can either be included on one page of your website or separated into different pages. 

Include your name on your website. Your website should include photos and video (either linked or embedded). Embedded photos and videos need to be cited. 

Your choice of world music must be a style of traditional music that is non-Western or not from the Western tradition of music, therefore avoid choosing styles of music from the U.S., Canada, or Europe, including Jazz or any type of pop music (including hip hop). For example, a pop or rock band from Europe or Japan would not be appropriate for this assignment. Celtic or Irish music are also not appropriate styles of music because these are European styles of music. Also, because most students are already familiar with Reggae music, do not choose Reggae for your topic. 

There are hundreds of styles of music from each continent that are not covered in the course materials. For example, Dagomban and Ewe music is covered in the Africa section of our e-text. This music is from Ghana, but there are other tribes in Ghana, such as Ashanti and Akan people, who have a unique style of music. Another example is Southeast Asia. Javanese and Balinese music is in the course reading, but there are many Southeast Asian countries and cultures that are not addressed in the course materials. If you are not sure if your chosen topic is a style of non-Western music, contact your instructor, who will provide guidance on your topic selection. 

Sources must be valid, academic sources (i.e. Please do not use non-academic websites, such as Wikipedia or About.com). Your website should not contain more than 15% direct quotes and direct quotes must be in quotation marks. Direct quotes and paraphrased material must be cited in the body of the text and in a reference section. 

After your website is completed and published, post a link to your website in the WK8: Exploring the World through Music thread in Forums by Sunday of Week 7 at 11:55pm (Eastern time). It is not required to post your website link in Assignments, although you can if you would like. 

Your project will be evaluating according to this grading iRubric. Here is a sample website that met all of the assignment requirements. 

Note: If you are a military member serving overseas and have limited internet access that would prevent you from completing this project, contact your instructor for an alternate assignment. 

Here are some samples of Wix websites. Let your creative imaginations inspire you to create your websites!
