Media Analysis

Select two recent news or information media article (published within the last year) concerning a social welfare issue in Canada. This could be a newspaper article, magazine article, radio podcast (there are many on the CBC radio website), website (e.g., POVNet, Fraser Institute, etc.––if you choose an agency’s website, please check with your Open Learning Faculty Member before beginning your work).Provide a link to, or copy of, the media article you are responding to.

For each article you choose, provide a maximum two-page (double-spaced, 12 point font, APA-referencing) summary and analysis of the article. There is no necessity to include a separate introduction and conclusion. Your assignment should include:

 
  1. summary of the article that clearly expresses the main point that the author intends the reader to understand. This should be no more than two or three sentences.

  2. Identification of the political ideology and social welfare approach that is inherent in the article; ensure that you provide evidence of how you came to that conclusion

  3. Analyze the perspective of the article using an inclusion lens. (Refer to Chapter 2 in Chappell; and: An Inclusion Lens: A Workbook for Looking at Social and Economic Exclusion and Inclusion to assist with this analysis.)

  4. Provide a critical reflection of the author’s perspective of this social issue. This may include identifying any critique of the ideas, inclusion of a missing point, or by providing more supporting information.

 

Letter in Response

For one of your chosen articles, write a response either as a letter to the editor, or to a public official such as a Mayor, MP, or MLA, or to bureaucratic leadership (such as the Deputy Minister of the appropriate Ministry), or to an office of the Legislature (such as the Ombudsman or the Representative for Children and Youth). Other choices may be available, but please check with your Open Learning Faculty Member.

The letter in response must conform to the requirements set out by the organization you are writing to. This may require some research in terms of number of words and/or format. If you cannot find any guidelines, identify how you approached trying to find the guidelines. For the purposes of this assignment the response can only be MAXIMUM one page

It is NOT part of the assignment to actually send the letter (or post it to any website).

You can choose the content of your response while ensuring that it is consistent with being a representative of the social work community. It must be professionally written in a way that you believe will have the most impact.
