2-2 Project Draft: Social JusticeIDS 105 Module Two Project Draft Guidelines and Rubric Overview

In this assignment, you will explore key concepts related to social justice, including justice, fairness, equality, and bias. You will also explore how narratives affect perceptions of social justice and core principles of social justice. This part of the project will be the basis for the rest of your project and will help you apply your knowledge of concepts related to social justice.


First, consult the Project Guidelines and Rubric to review the scope of the project and the provided scenarios. Next, review the Scenario Profiles document, which provides information related to the scenarios and potential conflicts, and select a scenario. (You will select and analyze one of the three conflicts associated with your chosen scenario in a later module.) Choose a scenario for this assignment carefully, because you will use the same scenario for the project. Then, with your chosen scenario in mind, address the assignment prompts by completing Part One in the Project Template. The following is a preview of the scenarios and conflicts:

  • Scenario 1 – School

You are interacting with a very diverse group of peers this term who come from different cultures, socioeconomic statuses, ability levels, learning styles, career goals, and more.

  • Scenario 2 – Personal

It’s the time of year when you gather with friends and family. Recent events in the news that impact different cultures have caused differences of opinion related to issues of justice and fairness, creating conflict with those you care about. You are hosting the next holiday celebration with your family members and friends with diverse thoughts and opinions.

  • Scenario 3 – Workplace

The organization you work for is expanding and acquiring an international business, increasing the total employee population from 500 to 10,000. Employees are located in multiple states and countries across the world.
