I’m working on a Writing question and need guidance to help me study.
To prepare for this Assignment:
- Review the social change articles found in this week’s Learning Resources.
Part 4: Trustworthiness and Summary
- Trustworthiness—summarize across the different data sources and respond to the following:
- What themes are in common?
- What sources have different themes?
- Explain the trustworthiness of your findings, in terms of:
- Dependability strategies
- Based on the results of your analyses, how would you answer the question: “What is the meaning of social change for Walden graduate students?”
- Self-Reflection—Has your own understanding of you as a positive social change agent changed? Explain your reasoning.
- Based on your review of the three articles on social change, which one is aligned with your interests regarding social change and why?
