Resource: Ch. 2 of Social Policy and Social Programs

Write a 700- to 1,050-word paperin which you summarize legislative tasks and the overall role of the judiciary in shaping public policy.

HSM 240 Week 3 CheckPoint Policy Elements

HSM 240 Week 2 CheckPoint Court Decisions

CheckPoint: Court Decisions

Resource: Electronic Reserve Readings

Review one of the three Electronic Reserve Readings for this week.

Explain why you agree or disagree with the decision in your chosen Electronic Reserve Reading.

Provide specific examples or reasons for your opinion, such as outcomes, figures, statistics, and facts.

CheckPoint: Policy Elements

Resource: Ch. 3 of Social Policy and Social Programs

Write a 300-word analysis of a program sponsored by the same agency or organization you used in the Week One CheckPoint. Use the six fundamental policy elements described in Ch. 3 as a guide. Keep in mind that a mission is different from goals and objectives. A mission is a statement of what the program is, why it exists, and the contributions it can make. It is usually short and concise, and describes a program’s reason for existing or its primary concern.

Important Note:Ch. 1 covers the four dimensions to consider when analyzing a social problem, but Ch. 3 covers the six fundamental elements to use when analyzing a social policy or program.

Discussion Questions

DQ 1 Discuss three of the nine major forms of benefits and services in the U.S. social welfare system, referred to on p. 95.
