Group Work Exercise #4 (Week 9):

Community Practice and Community Theories

Remember theories explain why something does or does not work and helps us predict the future and make informed recommendations.

The social issue of concern is low and disproportionate graduation rates. Each of the group has a different theory to focus on:

Group 4: Power, Change, and Politics-GENDER

My group is assigned to take the perspective of how “Power, Change and Politics” contribute to the difference in graduation rates. The source that we have to use, the article from Child Trends, focuses on race, gender, and immigrant status contributing to varying graduation rates. The population to focus on is GENDER, then explain how it affects rates & a policy recommendation for improvement

Please review this Child Trends here is the link (https://www.childtrends.org/indicators/high-school-dropout-rates) report and respond to the following questions as a group. We will then discuss in class next Thursday.

·         Using your assigned theory, discuss how you would explain the disproportional high school graduation rates.

·         Again, using your assigned theory as guidance, develop 1-2 recommendations of how to improve the graduation rates.
