EDU 644 Week 6 Final Creating a Web-Based Resource for a Population At Risk

Throughout this course, you have had the opportunity to examine various
populations at risk and learn about strategies and resources to support these
groups. You have reviewed many websites that offer services for a variety of
populations at risk as well, which have hopefully served as models for your website
that is finalized for this Final Project. In the Final Project, you will demonstrate
mastery of the five course learning outcomes by completing the website resource
you have been designing throughout the course that describes what you learned
about children and families at risk as well as a specific population you selected as a
focus during Week Five. Additionally, the website you create here may be an
effective artifact to include in your MAED program eportfolio during your enrollment
in the Capstone, EDU695, and will likely be useful to you as a resource for future
professional work with your chosen population at risk from this project.
Create your Final Project to using the content and written communication
instructions below. Use the Grading Rubric to review your Final Project before
submission to ensure you have met the distinguished performance for each of the
components described below. For additional assistance, review the Week Six
Instructor Guidance page and, if needed, contact the instructor for further
clarifications using the Ask Your Instructor discussion before the last day of the
course when this Final Project is due.
