Description: Inspires students by tracing the careers of macro practitioners from grass roots organizers to agency executivesThis book develops a new paradigm suited to the quickly shifting dynamics of a globalized society, both more reliant on social networking, and yet seeking common connection and community. By focusing on how practitioners can make meaningful, strategic choices regardless of their formal roles and responsibilities, the author breathes new life into key issues ranging from how to respond to both diversity and oppression, the vital use of the internet for organizing and the limits to 'œvirtual trust,' and co-leadership development.Key Features Skill sets for every type of macro practitioner to use immediately in the classroom and the fieldÂ· A continuous open-chapter vignette follows the story of two young organizers as they choose different career options and the practice dilemmas these options createÂ· Applicable sections of The University of Kansas's Community Toolbox Web page provided for the reader and instructorÂ· Paulo Freire's methodology in Pedagogy of the Oppressed is concretely adapted to macro practice for organizer and agency leader alikeThis text is appropriate for upper-level undergraduate and graduate-level students enrolled in courses such as Macro Practice, Community Organizing, Leadership, and Management/Administration in social work and allied departments.
