Summary of Civil Rights Leader’s Change Influence Using Organizational Frames
In Week 1, you pre-selected an American civil rights leader (Charlene Teter) to research this week.
Within your small group, each person will individually research your group’s chosen civil rights leader. Be ready to share contributions you have learned about your civil rights leader on Thursday in your small group’s synthesized PowerPoint presentation using Bolman and Deal’s (2017) organizational frames.
You should have prepared for this week’s deadlines by delegating the duties as soon as possible after choosing your civil rights leader in Week 1. The duties include each person reading the required studies and conducting additional research, writing the synthesis essay, and creating the PowerPoint. In addition to the resource, American Civil Rights Leaders Study – EDGR 626, you may need to use several other websites, such as Biography.com or scholarly resources, but please do not use Wikipedia. The provided PDF includes links to a variety of useful web resources, which you may find sufficient. When you research your famous person(s), do so with Bolman and Deal’s (2017) four frames in mind.
Research your chosen American civil rights leader and construct a short collaborative discussion post with your group partners. (You may choose to collaborate using cloud services such as Dropbox or Google docs.) Decide which group member will be responsible for posting the synthesized PowerPoint on Thursday. Each of you will need to copy and paste it into your replies as quoted material so your instructor can grade you accordingly.
Note: We understand that students may live in various time zones or locations. It is important that you plan ahead to coordinate these asynchronous or offline tasks.
