Module 1: Everyone Plays a Role
Begin by reading the chapter by Lina Dominelli. Post a brief (around 100 word) summary to your team.
Watch the 2 YouTube videos (links are provided). Post a short response to the questions provided to share with your team.
As a team, divide up the five readings listed below between you so that you each work on one article. Read that article and using the reading template provided, create a summary of the ideas, find a relevant quote within the text and note 5 key points. Once you are done, post your summary to the team so that each of you can benefit from the reading summaries of the other members of your team. Using reading templates like this can be a useful way of recalling the information later as you write your assignments.
Module 2: Community Development
Begin by reading the chapter by Michael Reisch and post a brief summary (approximately 100 words) to your team.
Similar to the task in module 1, here you will divide up the 5 set readings so that each of you reads one, uses the template provided to create an annotated bibliography and then share that with your team via your team blog

Ernesto Sirolli, (2012) Want to help someone? Shut up and listen?
3. Next, read the AASW Code of Ethics. When reading, look closely for the terms, community, communities, inclusion, rights, advocacy and social justice. Take notes about these terms, your observations and thoughts. You are welcome to use the readings template to do so. Save these notes to your computer so that you can use them when working on your final assignment.
4. Now read this version of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), take notes as you go and save them on your computer. Do you notice any contradictions in the terms or language used? Given that one of the core tenets of social work is human rights, how does what we do in practice, policy or research align with or ignore the UDHR?
5. Read the Uluru Statement, a document recently created by First Nations Australians.
6. Keeping the 3 previous documents in mind, plus your own life experiences, values and reasons for wanting to be a social worker, create your own rights document that lists 3-5 rights that everyone should have. These should not be just copied and pasted from the UDHR, the Code of Ethics or the Uluru Statement, but must be your own set of rights, in your own words. Post your Human Rights Charter on your teams blog, including a sentence or two about why you chose them. Again, save these notes as you may wish to use them in your final assignment.
Module 3: Community Development as Rights from Below
1. This week you will read the book by Jim Ife, Human Rights from Below: Achieving Rights through Community Development. This can be accessed through the required readings on FLO. The ideas in this book provide the theoretical framework for the Community Development aspect of this topic. It is an expectation that the ideas and concepts in this book will be used in your final assignment. You may use the template provided in previous weeks or, you can use another method of recording the ideas and concepts that you read about. Unlike the 2 previous modules, this work will remain your own and will not be shared among your team members. This work will become a resource for your final assignment.
2. Think about what you read in this book compared to what you learned last week, including your own statement of human rights. What are your thoughts? Has Jim Ife’s book challenged your own concept of human rights as they are deployed by social workers–especially in terms of community development? Post a reflection within your team blog.
Module 4: Using the arts in Community Development
Watch the short, 4 minute video about an arts based community development initiative with elderly people. Afterwards post your thoughts on how this activity challenges stereotypes and why this might be beneficial for the community.
Similar to the task in modules 1 & 2, here you will divide up the 5 set readings so that each of you reads one, uses the template provided to create an annotated bibliography and then share that with your team on the blog. However, you will need to find these readings yourself. To do so, first head to the Flinders University Library Homepage. Copy and paste the title of the article into the Findit@Flinders search tool to access these readings.
To accompany your reading summary, post your reflections on why participating in ‘arts-based’ community development activities may help build a sense of community and/or belonging.
Finally, to prepare for next weeks intensive, read the two attached documents, 40 Icebreakers for Small Groups and Setting up a Community Group. It is an expectation that you will use some of these icebreakers in your groupwork activities next week. You will also be called upon to refer to the Setting up a Community Group later next week.
