Social Context & Ethics
Prior to beginning work on the discussion forum, be certain to have read all the required resources for this week.
All evaluations are conducted, and ultimately exist, in a social environment and have the potential to be affected by a variety of social, cultural, political, and economic forces. Based upon what you have learned through working on your Final Paper, put your selected topic in its appropriate social context, and identify important ethical considerations inherent in the evaluation. Identify and explain the impact of political issues associated with the proposed evaluation. The discussion should focus both on political factors such as socio-economics, race, or gender, as well as political nuances that might include issues pertaining to city or state government. In addition, identify and discuss the most surprising thing you found in your research that caused you to reevaluate a previously held opinion.
