A goal of this course is to expose us to the history of the profession. Many social workers have pioneered new areas of intervention and practice. Each student is expected to select a social work pioneer and write a formal research paper on the pioneer and their contributions to the field. This paper is historical in nature. Students are expected to use both primary and secondary sources for the research; thus, while the internet can be a great resource it is not considered an adequate source for this kind of paper. The paper should not exceed 10 doubled spaced pages, using a 12-point font. Page borders must not be less than 1 inch. All references must be in the format of the American Psychological Association.
