Learning Issue Paper Description and Rubric
The Learning Issue paper requires each student focus on one of the many learning issues discovered in their group’s Problem-Based Learning activity.
Student is given a unique Learning Issue, completes the necessary research (including utilization of three sources) to provide case-specific information in order to provide the group guidance in clarifying hypotheses (and in making related recommendations). This case-specific Learning Issue information is to be presented in a 3 – 5 page paper, utilizing APA guidelines.
A case involves a twelve year old Jewish boy who mentions bar-mitzvah considerations – i.e. he is concerned that he hasn’t the time to contribute to an ongoing investigation/trial preps, etc. due to his pending Bar Mitzvah, scheduled for 10 months from today. He therefore is begging the team to no longer pursue charges on his matter, even beginning to recant his disclosure.
This case presents a few Learning Issues; one is that not everyone in the group (reflective of a Multi-Disciplinary Team of professionals) knows what a Bar Mitzvah is, what it entails, or how such may possibly impact a child abuse investigation.
In this example, one of the students would conduct research into Bar Mitzvahs, to include the definition, related child and family expectations and other information or observations, in order to make a recommendation to the family in the best interests of the child. This student would outline their findings in a 3 – 5 page paper, using the rubric below.
