Module 8: Portfolio Project

Portfolio Project (300 Points)

Important! Read First

Choose one of the following two assignments to complete this week. Do
not do both assignments. Identify your assignment choice in the title
of your submission.

Option #1: The Community Action Plan: Written Report and Slide Presentation

Your Portfolio Project for this class is a community action plan designed to alleviate or correct a public health issue in your community. Your community can be your business, school, neighborhood, town or city of residence or birth, or county.

For option 1, your community action plan will be a professional
portfolio that includes a written report and a slide presentation.

Below is a useful site where you can find an example of the elements of an action plan.

Preliminary Deliverables: These deliverables must be submitted in the assigned week:

  • Week 2: Written Response and Project Selection (20 points):
    Provide a brief one-paragraph response indicating which assignment
    option and public health issue you have selected and why. This will help
    your instructor to be aware of your plans and support you in the
    development of this project. Upload your response as a Word document.
  • Week 7: Preliminary Written Report and Peer Review Feedback (30 points) Submit
    a preliminary (rough) draft of the written portion of your Portfolio
    Project as well as proof of peer review. Remember to include the
    following sections: introduction, symptoms, diagnosis, cure, prevention,
    and summary. Peer review feedback is also included in this assignment.
    Create a post that includes your written report as an attachment using
    the Portfolio Project Milestone discussion forum for peer review
    feedback. Provide feedback to at least one of your classmates. Choose a
    classmate with no other feedback first, to ensure that everyone receives
    some feedback from their peers. In this preliminary draft submission,
    indicate which project you responded to.

Final Paper Instructions:

  • The case study, with four sections (Symptoms, Diagnosis, Cure, and
    Prevention). Each section should be about a page in length. Your entire
    paper must be 4-5 pages in length not counting the title or reference
    pages, which must be included. Your paper must follow the CSU-Global Guide to Writing & APA (Links to an external site.).

    • In the Symptoms section, describe the public health issue that you
      have observed in your community. What “symptoms” does it exhibit? Think
      about whom it affects, where it affects them, and how (Refer back to
      module 5 CT 1).
    • In the Diagnosis section, discuss the causes of the issue, and give
      examples of other communities that have suffered the same problem. How
      did those communities solve or attempt to address the issue?
    • In the Cure section, discuss possible options for a cure for this
      public health issue. How can you get rid of it, or reduce its occurrence
      in your community?
    • In the prevention section, discuss possible options for prevention
      of the public health issue that you have selected. How can you reduce
      the chance of people being impacted by your issue in the future?
  • You must back up your sections using at least two scholarly
    articles. You may use readings other than the textbook to meet this
    requirement. The paper should be based on references to scholarly
    materials (rather than on introductory textbooks, popular website
    writings, or musings, for example) and should support your claims with
    evidence.
  • Incorporate into this final plan any classmates’ critiques that you found useful as well as your instructor’s feedback.
  • The key community members or partners that you plan on contacting,
    with an explanation why these individuals or organizations make sense as
    potential partners. This could include partners from your list of
    potential partners created in week 4 Critical Thinking Assignment Option
    #1, or your interview of one key partner completed in week 4 Critical
    Thinking Option #2. Incorporate them into a discussion of your plan, do
    not just list them.
  • A special emphasis on either the demographics of the affected
    population or the economic implications, depending on what Critical
    Thinking assignment you completed for week 5.
  • A realistic timeline for your plan. Discuss the time needed for
    campaigning, education, funding, building, and implementation. Use ideas
    created during week 6 Critical Thinking Assignments, either the option
    for annotated bibliography or that for the brainstorming draft feedback.
  • The paper shall comply with the requirements defined within the CSU-Global APA guidelines.
  • Refer to the Portfolio Project rubric for grading criteria.

Final Instructions for Slide Presentation:

  • The slide presentation describes the problem in your community and your action plan.
  • Your presentation must be 8-10 slides in length not counting the title and reference slides.
  • Your presentation must be supported by at least two scholarly articles.
  • You may use a Web-based slide presentation software such as Prezi,
    for example, or you may use PowerPoint. If you use a Web-based tool,
    include the URL to your presentation in a Word document and upload with
    your presentation.
  • The audience for this presentation will be community members or
    organizations you wish to educate about the public health issue and your
    proposed plan.
  • The purpose of this slide presentation is to educate the audience
    about the issue. Keep in mind that in real life you will have limited
    time to convince people of the gravity of the situation and to come on
    board with their support, so you want to be persuasive and get to the
    key points quickly and effectively.

Note: Be sure to submit both your written report and
your slide presentation for this assignment. Both files should be
uploaded in a single submission to the assignment submission page.

The paper and preliminary deliverables must be well written and formatted in conformity with the CSU-Global Guide to Writing & APA (Links to an external site.).

Review the Sample PowerPoint Presentation (linked at the bottom of the page) in the CSU-Global Library as well.

For option 2, your Community Action Plan will be a professional portfolio that includes a written report and a handout.

Below is a useful site where you can find an example of the elements of an action plan.

      the chance of people being impacted by your issue in the future?

    Assignments, from either the annotated bibliography or the feedback on
    your detailed outline.

Final Instructions for the Handout:

  • The handout that you will distribute to audience members describes the problem in your community and your action plan.
  • You may design this as an outline of your presentation or as a
    brochure, with highlighted key points, to accompany your presentation.
  • The purpose of this handout is twofold: to educate the audience
    about the issue and to help them follow along as you speak. Keep in mind
    that, in real life, you will have limited time to convince people of
    the gravity of the situation and to come on board with their support. As
    such, you want to be persuasive and get to the key points quickly and
    effectively.
  • Your handout must be supported by at least two scholarly articles.
  • You may use the readings other than the textbook for this course.
