CEL 202: Knowing Your Issue
This course will allow spring semester, sophomore students in the Bonner Leaders Program the opportunity to craft their Capstone Proposal Plan by the end of academic year 2022-2023. The spring semester will conclude with students submitting a Capstone Proposal Plan that outlines their selected capstone project and overview of work they will begin in the Fall 2023 semester. The theme for CEL 202 is "Knowing Your Issue." Now that sophomore Bonners have been at their internship sites for at least three semesters, they will begin to examine and study root causes of issues their sites address that, over time, will develop into their Capstone Proposal Plan. Specifically, CEL 202 will focus on 4 subthemes:
• Researching the Scope of a Problem • Researching Current Programs / Policies • Identifying Proven Programs / Policies • Finalizing and Sharing Issue Brief
Students will participate in classroom activities, reflections, and draw from experiences at their internship sites to identify issues for their Capstone. Ideas will be drawn up in the summative Capstone Proposal Plan to be completed by the end of the Spring 2023 semester. Students will use their plan to begin their Capstone work in their CEL 301 Fall 2023 class.
