Week 5 – Assignment
Group At-Risk Specialization Mind Map
This assignment provides the opportunity for you to specifically plan the Final Project in Week Six by brainstorming and outlining each required component of your website using a mind map. For this assignment you will select a specific group at risk as a specialization. There are additional groups identified this week and listed as recommended resources to select from. These groups include child immigrants of Central America, homeless veterans, and sub-groups relating to poverty. You may also elect to focus on one of the groups or a sub-group of those already researched during Weeks One thru Five, which comprise the sections of your website.
You will then plan your content and design of this assignment using a digital mind mapping tool, such as bubble.us (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site., coggle (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site., Popplet (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site., Mural.ly (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site., or any other free digital mapping tool of your choosing. Remember to view the privacy policies of each mind mapping option, which are linked with the Recommended Resource description for each recommended tool. If you are unable to complete this assignment using a mind mapping tool, communicate the issue with your instructor before the assignment due date.
