- Identify a current social issue or problem that is of personal interest to you that you believe your role as a social worker could address.

- Prepare a short 2- to 4- paragraph reflection about your interest in the problem, and discuss what research has found about the problem so far.
- Provide a list of three current journal articles you have located in the NCU library that discuss research that has investigated your selected social issue/problem. (These are the supportive resources mentioned below in the assignment criteria.)
