The Application of the Saul Alinsky Approach

The Industrial Areas Foundation of Saul Alinsky has been referred to numerously in community organization.  Review the Saul Alinsky, Community Organizing and Rules for Radicals (Links to an external site.) article, research the roots of this method, and then discuss its application of “the ends justify the means” in today’s economy.  Address whether this theory is still applicable.  Why or why not?  Under what circumstances?  Provide a specific example to illustrate your perspective.  Prepare a two- to- three page paper (excluding title and reference pages) with a minimum of two scholarly, peer-reviewed sources that were published within the last five years, in APA format.

I am re-posting the following to make sure you understand the following.

All papers should be in the APA format and have a separate title page and a separate reference page.  If the paper is to be 2-3 pages long, then you should have a 2-3 page paper in addition to a title page and a reference page.  For help with the APA format, please see the Purdue Owl website http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/ or ask me.

Class,

Please read the comments on the paper and if I included a Turnitin report, please read it. You cannot use someones words as your own. Please be aware of the plagiarism policy of Ashford University. Go to the Ashford University writing center to get help with your writing. They have great resources to help you.

Also, please do not list sources if you are not using them in your paper. In addition to running every paper through Turnitin, I check the sources against your paper. Check your grammar and sentence structure.

I try to be more lentient the first week, but I do expect you to read the comments. If you don’t, it is apparent in the next week paper.
