Foundations of Effective Group Work

In the Unit 4 assignment, you convinced your principal that you are capable of leading an effective group. Now, imagine you are going to prepare to lead a counseling or psycho-educational group at your school site to improve academic outcomes.

If you will not be working in a school setting, please modify the instructions and make them applicable to your site. For example, if you would be in a community setting, you would present this to your supervisor instead of a principal. The core concepts should be the same.

For this assignment, state what grade level you will work with and explain the target population. Research the foundations of effective group work. Next, analyze what outcomes you would like to see and how you plan to achieve them by reviewing relevant scholarly sources. Your analysis should address the following points:

  • Describe at least two theoretical foundations for group counseling and how you will operate from one orientation. Consider how this will be an effective framework when working in the school setting. (1–2 pages).
    • Assess your own theoretical orientation for group work, including an examination of how the theory will benefit group counseling and group work.
  • Consider different dynamics that may be associated with the group process and group development. Explain the initial, transition, working, and final stages of groups and what you might expect considering the grades you are working with. Synthesize approximately four concepts that may include, but are not limited to, trust, goals, resistance, fears, and self-disclosure. These are examples; it is up to you to decide which issues you would like to consider when thinking about possible group dynamics for this group. (1–4 pages.)
  • Consider some ethical dilemmas and how you might apply our ethical standards, and demonstrate your synthesis of the standards and how you might apply them in a group setting. For example, you might address concerns around confidentiality in the school setting. Demonstrate your preparedness by addressing approximately three possible ethical dilemmas. References should be made to ACA, ASGW, or ASCA ethical standards in your review. (1–3 pages.)
  • Describe your approach to forming the group, including how you will recruit, screen, and select members. Consider whom you might contact and how you will go about the process at your school site. (1–2 pages.)
  • Describe your proposed intervention and how it may improve academic outcomes. Integrate how you might measure the effects of the group. For example, perhaps, you targeted working with students who were failing one course. You would state that your goals would be to have the students reengage in their academic achievement, demonstrated by earning at least a C the following quarter. (1–2 pages.)

Submission Requirements

Your assignment should meet the following requirements:

  • Written communication: Written communication is free of errors that detract from the overall message.

Approaches To Learning Scenarios

The purpose of this assignment is to explore approaches to instruction that support adolescents’ physical, cognitive, or socioemotional growth and to understand the unique challenges adolescents face with regards to classroom learning.

Respond to each of the following scenarios with a 500-750 word rationale. Your response to each scenario should include the following:

  • Assessment of developmental characteristics of adolescent behaviors.
  • Explanation of specific challenges the student is facing, based on developmental characteristics and behaviors.
  • Approaches to instruction that promotes the physical, cognitive, or socioemotional development of each student.
  • Opportunities to facilitate learning with the use of technology.

Scenario #1

Marco is a senior in one of your classes. He has appeared to be depressed, showing signs of sadness, self-criticism, and hopelessness. As a result, his grades have dropped. You are considering whether to use the Response to Intervention approach to provide more guided, supportive instruction to Marco.

Explain how and why you might use Response to Intervention (RTI) to support Marco’s learning in your classroom. Offer specific intervention strategies and steps you will take, including the use of technology in your response.

Scenario #2  

Megan, a sophomore in one of your classes, has been struggling with substance abuse and chemical dependency for the last year. She is now on an Individualized Education Program (IEP). Tasks that involve memory and retention of information pose a challenge for her.

Explain how you might help Megan in the classroom by supporting her capacity to remember/retain information, enhance her study skills, and organize and process her thoughts.

What strategies might you use to support her learning? Explain why you selected these strategies. Include the use of a technological tool as a means of supporting her learning in your response.

Support your findings with a minimum of three scholarly resources.

Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.

stories of communities

Review at least three of the following videos that share stories of communities that have mobilized to make change:

Select one of the above stories to use as the basis for this assignment (you are encouraged to use the same one you chose for this week’s discussion). For this assignment, you will map the community’s needs and assets, determine how they proceeded through the community organizing process, and consider how you could work with the community to continue the momentum to make change. You may choose to do this assignment as a written paper or as a screencast presentation. In either a five to seven page written paper or an approximately 10 minute presentation:

  • Analyze the needs and assets of the community. You are encouraged to locate additional resources that describe the community to help you fully “paint a picture” of it.
  • Create a community needs map and a community assets map (two separate maps). Use this week’s readings and the textbook (specifically, Figures 9.3 and 9.4 in the textbook and the McKnight & Kretzmann (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. article) to help guide you.
  • Interpret the community needs map and community assets map. Questions to consider:
    • What is included on each map and why did you include it?
    • What particular strengths and challenges does the community have?
    • What appears to be the most critical health issues the community is facing?
    • Which strengths could be leveraged to work on critical health issues?
  • Compare and contrast the community’s mobilization efforts to Figure 9.2 in your course text, which provides a summary of the steps involved in community organizing and building. Questions to consider:
    • What did the community’s mobilization efforts entail?
    • What did the community do (or perhaps not do) in relation to each step?
  • Based on the community’s work so far and the maps you created, assess how your work with the community could proceed. Questions to consider:
    • What health issues could most effectively be addressed?
    • How could the community apply the needs and assets maps?
    • Where should the community go from here?
    • How should you (in your role as a representative from the health department) be involved in the community’s future mobilization efforts?

The Community Mobilization assignment

  • Must be either a five to seven double-spaced pages in length (not including title and reference pages) paper or an approximately 10 minute screencast presentation.

Bibliography Paper

For this bibliography, write a (6-page, double space, 12 pt. font) paper that is a variation of a book review; only in this case you are reviewing 4 to 5 books or professional/academic articles other than the materials in my textbooks. For an example of this approach see the attached Bibliography on “Retention and Recruitment” as well as other professional journals, where sometimes three or more books on the same subject are reviewed. In this case, I am asking you to take an HRM topical theme, e.g., performance appraisal, and find 4 or 5 resources that you think are valuable on this subject and critique them. (NOTE: General management topics are not appropriate here, e.g., “organization culture,” “leadership” or “performance management” which are covered in other EMPA courses.) You should draw your topic from the theme of “Job Analysis, Recruitment and Selection”. The appropriate citation format for this paper is APA. Your journal sources should be from reputable professional and/or scholarly journals, preferably from the journals cited below in Additional Reading Sources paragraph. The appropriate citation format for this paper is APA; this format is available in many writing books, e.g., Diana Hacker, A Writer’s Reference, St. Martins Press

The topic for my paper is Job Analysis & Design
