“Age-Friendly Community Assessment” :
The purpose of this assignment is to conduct a community assessment in order to find out how suitable the community is for older adults and to identify areas for improvement. This assignment is worth 20% of your grade.

The assignment requires you to select two categories from the Checklist of essential features of age-friendly cities and assess a community on the categories you have chosen. -> I have chosen “Outdoor spaces and buildings” and “Transportation”


Some general guidelines for the assignment :

-The assignment should be formatted as a report with a title page, introduction, conclusion, and appropriate headings and subheadings

-For the two categories you choose, each criteria for the category should be addressed in the report. There should be an analysis for each criteria of how the community does or does not meet the criteria and also any recommendations you have for improvement

-Recommendations should be presented in a list format, and can be presented at the end of the report, at the end of each category, or after each criteria. Recommendations should be organized so they are clearly linked with the criteria they are addressing.

-The pictures for the assignment should be taken by you. I realize for some categories it may be difficult for you to take pictures, in which case you may supplement your pictures with other materials (eg., brochures, maps, etc.) or pictures from other sources as long as they are properly cited. Please try and take your own pictures whenever possible though, and make sure you have at least a couple of your own pictures for each category.


Clarification about assignment length :

For this assignment I would suggest approximately 10-15 pages single spaced, plus appendices if desired. The reason I have suggested this length is because in a report format, with the using of headings, subheadings, etc. normally there ends up being a fair bit of white space on your pages. Also, most students prefer to put their pictures directly into the body of their report rather than as separate appendices, in which case the pictures will contribute to the page count and pictures tend to take up a fair amount of room in the report. If you are submitting your pictures separately then your report likely will be shorter. Ultimately though, 10-15 pages is just a suggested length and it is up to you to decide how long your report needs to be.



Grading Scheme :

Discussion of the Community: Comprehensive use of the checklist to assess community resources in terms of services, organizations, infrastructure, etc. Relevance and level of detailed information (50 points)

Quality of writing: Includes: clarity, coherence, sentence/paragraph structure, spelling, grammar etc (10 points)

Use of Photographs: Representation of the various aspects of the two categories with visual materials. Usefulness of information/content of the photographs and their integration with the text (either by notes attached to the photos or links with the main discussion) (20 points)

Recommendations: Appropriate and thoughtful recommendations related to the issues identified in the two categories (20 points)

There are 2 parts of this course work: 1.a draft of “white paper”(1500 words) 2.a Combined Memorandum and Progress Report for white paper. (800 words)

1. The main document in this course will be a ‘white paper.’ This is a type of research paper that examines a certain topic and presents itself as an authoritative voice. Review the links in Resources (White Paper folder) on the nature of a white paper. The goal of the white paper is for you to argue, discuss, or present a position on technology and education from the perspective of your dream job. While you may voice your opinion in the white paper, each of your opinions should be supported with information from credible, reliable, and verifiable sources.
The use of sources from experts helps to support your position presented in your white paper. It is important to consider all sources of information – negative and positive – to respond to the negative, while highlighting the positive. Your goal is to help the reader make up their mind on the subject, based upon the information that you have gathered.

Format: For the draft of the white paper, use this structure:

Cover page: Indicate the title of your report, your name, date, and the dream job company; include the word count also
Introduction (outline a problem and include thesis statement)
Discussion (evaluate the historical background of a problem using supporting evidence and conclusions)
Recommendations (offer generic concepts that might pose a solution and the associated benefits, and then introduce your unique solution to the problem):
Resources (documentation and verification of discussion points)
1. Goal:
To identify the progress you have made on your white paper, and what steps are needed to take to complete the document. The memorandum and associated progress report should be at least 800 words.

2. Format, pp. 153-154 (memorandum) & 139-140 (progress report):
Use the structure of the documents that are presented in the text, where the sections are used as headings (review chapter 6). This progress report will be written as a memorandum for the supervisor or manager at your dream job. Review the structure for a memorandum (chapter 10), especially noting the differences between the letter and the memorandum.

Memorandum:
Use the proper memorandum format. This memorandum should be directed to the supervisor or manager of your dream job, using a name, if possible, or simply a position. Locate an appropriate individual, other than simply using “Human Resources.” This may mean that you will have to do some additional exploring of the company or organization, to locate an acceptable individual. You should provide some type of introductory paragraph that allows the individual to understand the purpose and nature of the relevant progress report.

Progress report:
The following sections are fully detailed in the text, and are not meant to substitute for that information.
Introduction:
This should be a 150- to 200-word summary of the subject/purpose of your white paper, where you discuss how you will consider the impact of education and technology for your dream job. You may wish to review your comments in blog 2 on your focus for the white paper.

Project description:
Describe your work on the white paper report, stating its purpose and scope that covers any specific steps you need to undertake. This could include writing an outline (chapter 3), identifying appropriate images (chapter 6), and locating credible sources (chapter 7).

Work completed:
This should highlight your white paper efforts to date, including the preliminary research that you have accomplished, identifying reputable or reliable sources of information. Here is where you may wish to include discussions on Classroom at the End of the ‘Line.’

Work planned for future periods:
This should reflect work that is planned to complete the white paper, and a schedule for accomplishing those tasks.

Appraisal of progress:
Reflect on your progress on the white paper, identifying where you are ahead of schedule and where you are behind schedule.

1) Since “Son” is the continuation story of “The Giver”, what do you really want to see happen? Think of “The Giver” characters and tell me what you hope happens to them in this story (100+ words). 
2) Will this be the last novel in this Quartet for Lowry? Why or why not? (100+ words).

*If you would like to cite quotes from the novel, please watch this short video on how to cite “in-text” citations, aka, Parenthetical Citations in the MLA format:
Answer each question separately. 


http://courses.aplia.com/images/spacer.gifInstructions:
Now that you have read all four novels in this Quartet, by Lowry, create “Your Perfect World.”
POST: “Your Perfect World: The assignment where you create your own planet and social system,” follow the directions below  and post your answer.
It is the year 2020.
The Earth has been destroyed. The last nuclear bomb has exploded. When it was obvious to everyone that the war would come, a world famous scientist had filled a spacecraft with scientifically sleep-induced children. His name was Dr. Kafka.
The children ranged from pre-born embryos (in a kind of warm yellow gel) to 12-month-olds, from a wide variety of groups, from all over the world. Years before the war, Dr. Kafka had found, orbiting a distant star, a planet that was a nearly perfect copy of Earth, the same atmosphere, plants, forests, islands, deserts, and animal life…except there were no people there. Dr. Kafka dreamed of saving the human race. With the end near, he planned to build a colony on that “sister planet” of earth. He wanted to start over from the beginning, fresh, with a  generation raised in innocence, humans who had never heard of war, or hatred, or any of the problems on earth. One of the children on that spaceship was your brother, Stephen, a three-month-old infant. You came aboard the ship secretly, and when the steel door slammed shut, you were taken by surprise, and trapped. The floor began to tremble. You were in a room surrounded by sleeping, dreaming young lives. The ship began to break the earth’s atmosphere just as the bombs began to fall…You never found Stephen among the “nursing capsules” that survived take-off. After a time, you found Dr. Kafka in another part of the ship. You were amazed; his experiments with radiation had left him sick and pale. He did not have long to live. Indeed, after four terrible months, Dr. Kafka was dead, leaving the project of designing a new way of life in your hands…
Your job is to describe the colony that Dr. Kafka dreamed of.

Don’t worry about how to raise those babies! They were all raised fine. TEN GENERATIONS HAVE PASSED. Those children have grown up, and their children, and their children, etc. The population is in the hundreds of thousands. All your plans have succeeded! They are living in the world YOU designed, under the system YOU established. What is that system?

RULE: You have access to any kind of technology that exists on our world (television, computers, etc.) BUT you DO NOT HAVE TO use it, and you CANNOT use any science fiction new technology that does not really exist. (Also: Do NOT just copy ideas from The Giver, of course.)
YOUR ASSIGNMENT:
What is the system you set up in the world?
Describe:
§Your system of laws, rules, and punishments
§Your system of how people are educated
§Your system for finding and choosing leaders, and how the government runs
§Your social system & how people raise families, and find enjoyment

Those four (4) categories will be the biggest part of your planning. But you can also think of city plans, music, sports, and anything else that comes to your mind :-) 

What will the final project look like? 
It has to include lots of information about how your world works…
• It might be a poster, with pictures and text. 
• It might be a story or diary entry, as long as it tells all of the information above.
• Be creative, as well as informative. You need the information and content; the style is up to you.
• You will present your project orally to the class in a creative way.
Answer each of the four (4) categories below on your “system” separately.
§Your system of laws, rules, and punishments
§Your system of how people are educated
§Your system for finding and choosing leaders, and how the government runs
§Your social system & how people raise families, and find enjoyment
Please write at least 500+ words to show depth, thought and creativity.
