How does a group of car enthusiasts reach out to the surrounding community to get support for their events?

SCENARIO: Imagine that you work for a nonprofit organization that is focused on increasing diversity in community groups in your area. Your supervisor asks you to develop a sociological study concerning topics of diversity and collaboration in a specific community group of your choice. Eventually you will prepare to share your research with colleagues.
ASSIGNMENT: For this Touchstone, you will begin by formulating a question about diversity in a community group that you have access to. Then you will use the steps of the scientific method to prepare a research plan, including a bibliography for a literature review. As you learned, sociologists follow the scientific method so that their results are both scientifically valid and useful to the greater sociological community. A literature review allows researchers to learn from completed studies and to build upon their conclusions.
Use the following Touchstone template to fill in your research plan as you develop it. When you have finished, submit this template to move on to the next unit.
Touchstone 1 Template
Touchstone 1 Sample
A. Directions
Step 1: Pick a Topic
Select a community group to study. Some examples of community groups you might explore include:
An activity-based group like a book club, a soccer team, or a community choir
A religious or ideological community such as a church congregation or a local political party
A community organization like a Parent Teacher Association (PTA), a neighborhood association, or the volunteer committee at a local soup kitchen
An identity-based organization such as a social club for veterans or a fraternal type organization
It should be a group in which membership is voluntary and recreational. Avoid:
Families
Workplaces
Ethnic or racial categories
Friend groups
You might wish to choose a group that you are a part of, or you might not. You can use your personal experience with the group to form the basis of your research question. Or you can ask members of the group about their experiences, which will help you develop your research question.
In the template, write a paragraph (approximately 6-8 sentences) describing the community group you have chosen. In particular, be sure to answer the following questions:
What is the community group?
What are the attributes or characteristics of this community group? (e.g. What activities does this group do together? What element of the members’ interests or identities brings them together? How is membership in the group defined, if at all?)
What kind of experience with or access to this community group do you have?
Step 2: Ask a Question
Next, you will formulate a question related to this group, and to topics related to diversity and/or collaboration. You might think about diversity in terms of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, religion, socioeconomic status, or along multiple intersecting identities. Be sure to use what you learned in Unit 1 about the ways sociologists ask questions.
Examples:
What are the challenges of a mom’s community organization in appealing to moms with children of different ages?
How does a group of car enthusiasts reach out to the surrounding community to get support for their events?
How has the Boy Scouts accepting girls impacted their mission and programs?
Do gender segregated sports teams for kids help maintain traditional gender roles?
In the template, write the question you have formulated for your study. Be sure to identify the Independent and Dependent variables and identify them correctly. (HINT: Refer back to Lesson 1.3.3: Asking Questions and Lesson 1.3.5: Formulating a Hypothesis for help.)
Step 3: Prepare a Bibliography
Finally, you will begin developing a bibliography for a review of the existing literature that relates to your question. Before conducting a full literature review, a sociologist will build a bibliography, or a list of potential sources that they will read and study in greater depth in the review.
Collect 4-6 articles, books, or other resources that relate to your question and list them in your template. You don’t have to look into these materials in depth right now! You’ll review this literature more closely in a later Touchstone, and you will also be exposed to additional relevant research and frameworks in Unit 3. You’ll also be able to add to or amend your bibliography before your Touchstone in Unit 3.
Attributes of good readings for your literature review:
They are academic, scholarly works about research findings or they are reliable journalistic reporting based on scientifically credible and reliable data.
They should have been published in the last 20 years—unless they are a landmark work on the topic and provide important background or as a comparison.
They look at different sides of the argument and a variety of perspectives.
They do not have to be written by sociologists or published in sociology journals, but they should be academic and not popular works.
Where to find readings: More than likely you will use a major search engine like Google Scholar. Start your search by identifying key search terms related to your research question, to generate relevant results. Google Scholar specifically searches scholarly literature. However, keep in mind that much of this literature may have limited or paid access. Another good place to search is in a public library or university library catalog or database. You might also want to try regular Google, but you will have to be careful to screen your results and make sure you only select academic sources. Whichever way you choose to search, make sure that you are selecting credible sources.
What makes a source credible? Credible sources are written by authors who are well known in their field. They are based on scientific data—not opinions or with biased observations. Sources should be from reliable outlets, like major publishers, universities, think tanks, and credentialed current practitioners. (HINT: Refer back to Lesson 1.3.4: Researching Existing Sources for more guidance.)
How to format sources in your bibliography: Sociologists use American Psychological Association (APA) format for their research. However, you will use a more simplified method to format sources for your bibliography. You will include five key elements for each source, with each element separated by a period:
Author’s name(s)
Publisher and publication date
Title of the source, in quotation marks
Page numbers (if applicable)
Source’s location for web-based texts (URL)
EXAMPLE Alireza Behtoui. Journal of Sociology, 2015. “Beyond social ties: The impact of social capital on labour market outcomes for young Swedish people.” p. 711-724. journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/1440783315581217

Please read the scenario carefully.

Question
Read the following scenario carefully and make appropriate reference to its content in the answers you provide to each of the subsequent questions. PLEASE READ THE SCENARIO CAREFULLY. PLEASE USE EXAMPLES TO BOLSTER REASONING.
You are the head of regulatory compliance at Worldwide Organisation (WO), a firm regulated in the UK, and you have been with the firm for four years. Energised by the high level of interest in the products and services offered by the firm over the two years before the global pandemic (both within the jurisdiction in which the firm is located and overseas), and keen to capitalise on this interest, the board and senior management of WO had been enthusiastic about recruitment during this period. The firm employed large numbers of new sales employees throughout its numerous offices, many on short-term contracts. Unfortunately, this attitude to recruitment was not replicated in the assurance functions within the firm, many of which are now extremely
short staffed and under increasing pressure. Throughout the period of expansion, as numerous employees joined WO, alongside the
introduction of new products and services, your team regularly urged caution. In particular, you highlighted concerns about the inadequacy of customer suitability assessment for certain higher-risk products and about potential inadequacies in the
recruitment processes for new employees.
You also raised concerns about the attitude towards risk management apparent among some of the business managers within the firm, particularly those who were new to this business
sector. It is apparent from your compliance activities, your observations, and your discussions with members of other assurance functions within WO, that there are some managers
who have demonstrated little understanding of the risks inherent within a regulated business offering products and services such as those supplied by WO.
Furthermore, there appear to be some who have little appreciation of how aggressive sales practices could be detrimental to the firm and lack understanding of the potentially negative aspects of the products and services offered by the firm and the ways in which these might be targeted by criminals.Although you have pointed out the potential risk implications of these findings (both verbally
at the board meetings you have attended and in the reports you have produced for the board and senior management), to date little appears to have been done to address them. Your
focus on training and education to address some of these concerns has been restricted to a significant degree by both staffing limitations and other business needs. You have therefore
attempted to alleviate these difficulties through a risk-based, focused compliance reporting and monitoring regime undertaken by members of your compliance team, allowing potential
issues to be identified and flagged speedily to the board, senior management and business units.
In practice, this too has been made more difficult by high turnover of employees within the team during this period, resulting in the loss of a number of experienced individuals to other parts of the business. You have recognised the need to recruit a number of more experienced compliance professionals but have yet to take any further steps to do this; you are also concerned that your request for additional resources may be denied so want to take time to consider how best to approach this.
Owing to the global pandemic, there has recently been a reduction in the level of interest in the products and services offered by WO and consequently a number of the newer posts across the firm have been eliminated. This has placed additional pressure on remaining employees, many of whom are beginning to complain about their increased workloads.
Having examined the output of the recent monitoring activities, which focused on the risk management systems and controls within the firm, you note several aspects of this that still give you cause for concern, requiring immediate attention, together with several additional findings that raise further concerns. You schedule a meeting with your senior compliance team members to agree a plan of action to address these issues before presenting this directly to the board.
Writing with reference to the above scenario and drawing on your understanding of the topics covered in the Diploma in GRC, set out the issues to be addressed at the meeting, as follows.
a) Identify the risks to WO arising from the weaknesses apparent in the above scenario and explain why these should be of concern to the board of directors of a regulated firm.
(Please allocate about 1000 words for this question
My notes: This question seems to be referring to responsibility and accountability. Tables can be used to demonstrate understanding and set out a clear response. Identify the risks and say why they are a concern to the Board)
b) Explain why the attitude and approach of the various stakeholders referred to in the above scenario would cause you concern. Support your answer with examples and evidence drawn
from the above scenario and elsewhere.
(Please allocate about 700 words for this question
My notes: This question seems to be a follow on and asking what I think are going to be the additional blockers/problems further to a above)
c) In preparation for the meeting referred to in the scenario, produce a high-level plan to act as the basis of discussions at that meeting. The plan should address the risks and weaknesses
identified, creating a schedule of activity, allocating responsibilities and setting appropriate time frames accordingly, all supported by clear reasoning in support of the approach adopted.
(Please allocate about 1500 words for this question
My notes: I believe a and b should be referenced but more the remediation plan. Clear reasoning why and who and how I will get around it.)
Attached are three units that should help with the assignment.

Click on the “real time world population growth” link and look at how fast the world population is growing, even when taking deaths into account.

Assignment Details for Discussion Post: In about 300 – 400 words, post some insights into what you have learned through these four links (the first one is the schedule and purpose to help you focus).
I will be looking closely at your organization, grammar, and ability to write a clear paragraph: i.e. your ability to write using a topic sentence with organized thoughts and specific details from the links in this week’s module. You may use “I” in this particular Discussion Post to be specific about what you are learning, what is new to you, and your reaction to the information in the links.
ou have three links to engage with and then write your insights and observations in an organized paragraph or two. Here are guidelines to help you focus.
Your purpose this week is to think about where humanity has come from over the centuries, our growth and impact on the Earth. As you think about the information, consider not only our past, but our current dominance on the earth and future projections as a species on this planet we share. We are interconnected with all other species, even if we don’t always see ourselves that way.
Click on the “Overpopulation: Exponential Growth” link; then click on the “Real Time World Population Growth” link and look at how fast the world population is growing, even when taking deaths into account. Scroll down on that page to see population broken down by countries. What do you notice? Scroll down again to see the exponential growth curve. Why has population grown at such a tight upward curve since the 1700s? How might the industrial revolution and medical advancements since that time affected population growth? The second link on the page in this section is interesting because it shows the impact of the Black Death Plague that supposedly “depopulated western Europe” (quite a small dent, actually, no?).
Then read the “Ego vs. Eco” link and consider how our view of our place in the natural world has shifted as our knowledge in science has grown. How are we interconnected? Do you see examples? I shared a picture and story about my bird friends. Do you have a story you’d like to share? I’d love to hear it. 🙂
The last link is about the current Six Mass Extinction on planet earth. These facts are science, not opinion, and should help you think about humanity’s impact on the earth in a thoughtful way. Also, there are links at the end that show the crisis of the endangered elephants and orangutans, which are possible topics for you to choose as your research project.

Ego vs. Eco: Where Is Humankind’s Place in the Ecology of the Planet?
Ego Eco.jpg
This “Ego vs. Eco” visual shows a fundamental difference in two ways of thinking about humanity’s place in the world. “Ego” suggests that man (even higher than woman and whales) is the pinnacle of creation, dominant and “above” all other creatures. This visual was common in classroom science books in schools during the last century. “Eco” suggests that humankind is interconnected with all other living creatures, a part of and not separate from the complex web of life on earth. This type of visual is what we see in more updated science books today. (Note: this is not a “creationist vs. science” debate but an ecological statement about what we know in the natural sciences as ecological balance of an ecosystem).
If we live in a community of houses or apartments without interaction with animals or nature, we may forget that our reality is much more “eco” than “ego” in the world, from a wider perspective.

Photo of me in my yard; I have had bird feeders in my yard for years, and the birds born and raised in the wetland behind my house sometimes land on me. The photos on the main page were taken in my yard as well. While I don’t suggest you try to make friends with wild raccoons, the one in the picture befriended me by the pond in my yard. My lesson: we are not separate from other creatures but interconnected with them.
William Blake (1757-1827), an English poet, wrote this about the creative imagination:
To see the world in a grain of sand
And Heaven in a wild flower,
To hold infinity in the palm of a hand
And eternity in an hour.
One Way Overpopulation Is Impacting the Earth: The Sixth Mass Extinction Is Now Underway
Earth’s sixth mass extinction event is under way, scientists warn. Researchers talk of ‘biological annihilation’ as study reveals billions of populations of animals have been lost in recent decades. Reflect on how the “ego” pyramid of seeing the world has contributed to this sixth mass extinction.

How does overpopulation and the mass extinction relate to this class? You need to find an unresolved environmental problem to research. Overpopulation or the sixth mass extinction are true but too big as topics.
One way to narrow down a topic for this class is to look at how human activities have impacted a specific endangered species, like elephants or orangutans:
Elephants are being hunted to extinction because of the value of their ivory tusks and loss of habitat to human population growth:

Orangutan’s habitat is being lost. In Indonesia, deforestation for palm-oil plantations due to human consumption demands is causing environmental destruction of habitat for endangered orangutans:

Science

Your task is to create an interesting, engaging lesson plan for an average Tuesday during the spring semester. Your lesson plan must meet the following requirements:
There must be a cohesive theme for the day that’s present in every activity and lesson throughout the day.
Every lesson must incorporate an art project, music, or movement activity. It doesn’t have to be the main focus of the lesson, but it should follow the criteria outlined in the text. Remember, a coloring page where each student will end with a similar final product doesn’t count as art. Double-check your text for the definitions of art, music, and movement if you feel unsure.
You must include your accommodations for the child with a hearing impairment and the child with a visual impairment. Reference the end of each chapter for specific ideas.
Each lesson should account for students’ level of development. The independent activity shouldn’t require a sustained focus greater than 20 minutes.
Your plan must include a lesson for each of the following subjects:
Science
Mathematics
Reading
Learning to Recognize/Write Letters of the Alphabet
Social Studies
Art
Physical Education
Cultural Appreciation
Conflict Resolution
Technology
As with all ECE exams, begin with your Title Page formatted in APA style. (Refer to the assignment’s open office hour for a sample image of the Title Page in APA format.) Format your paper using a standard font such as Times New Roman or Arial, 12-point type. Set the margins at a standard 1 inch on all sides. Set your line spacing for double-spacing. Because you’ve already provided your information (your first and last name, your student ID number, the examination name and number, the course name and number and the date of submission) on your Title Page, no running header is necessary. Be sure to give your plan a title based on the theme you’ve chosen. The standard style format for citations, if required, is American Psychological Association (APA).
For assistance with proper APA in-text citations and references, please see the Research and Writing page in the Virtual Library.
Each subject must follow this formatting:

Subject: Reading
Topic: Everyone is Special
Materials Required: The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister, white paper, colored tissue paper, shiny foil cut into small shapes, crayons, glue sticks, teacher’s example
Introduction: Reading the story, The Rainbow Fish, and have a discussion about why the Rainbow Fish is still special, even though he’s not the most beautiful fish in the ocean anymore. Key Question: What makes someone special? Is it their appearance or what’s inside? Or a mixture of both? What makes you special?
Guided Practice: If I were a creature that lives in the ocean, I would be an octopus. Because I feel like I’m always doing so many things at once. I feel like this fish is the best example of myself. It will be colorful and contain a single, shiny foil piece to represent my shiny scale.
Instructions to Students: You’ll be creating your own fish! This fish should be what you think you’d be if you lived in the ocean. Know that it doesn’t have to be a fish; it can be any creature that lives in or around the ocean, like an otter or a penguin. It should be just like you, though! You’ll use your hands to rip the tissue paper into smaller pieces, and you’ll glue them onto your page to create the shape of your fish. You’ll be allowed one shiny scale, and you can use your crayons to draw a face or other features you’d like.
Art/Music/Movement Element: Students will be creating their idea for what they’d look like as a fish. This qualifies as art because no two fish will look similar, and this isn’t busywork. Students are working on their self-reflection skills to find representations of who they are as individuals.
Accommodations: The student with the visual impairment can touch the book as it’s read to feel the shiny scales on the page. This student will also be given assistance to help glue and attach his or her fish scales. The student with the auditory impairment can sit more closely as the story is being read to hear better. Also for the hearing impaired student, a second reading of the story can occur if necessary.
Approximate Duration of Solo Activity: 15 minutes
Please use a single page for each subject. Therefore, you should have 10 pages, plus the title page, when you’re done.
Summary
The concepts for integrating art, music, or movement into your lesson plans and curriculum are outlined thoroughly within your text. There are even sections dedicated solely to conflict resolution, technology, and other various subjects. Use the index of your book to help you find those specific readings.
Be sure to make the lessons engaging. Remember that preschoolers are only 3–5 years old. They enjoy fun, novel activities that require hands-on experiences. The more you can get them on their feet or with hands on materials, the more likely they’ll enjoy the activity and remain on-task.
Your final project should be at least 11 pages, depending on the amount of descriiption you use in each section. Use APA formatting to create your document.
