After reviewing this unit’s video, Module Two the Stafford Act, you will create a blog post that addresses the following.
Explain the disaster declaration process and role of the federal government in times of disaster.
Identify the individual programs available to disaster victims through the Stafford Act.
Give your opinion regarding whether individual and public assistance programs provided through FEMA help fulfill the federal government’s role and responsibilities during times of emergencies.
Make at least one recommendation for change, and give an example of the anticipated effect.
There are two essentials to good blogging. First, remember that a blog should be conversational and be an extension of your own thoughts and opinions, not merely a list of facts. Your post should have a topic, have a purpose of presenting a point of view, and indicate an openness to dialogue by inviting comments. Since this class is your audience, you can assume a basic understanding of homeland security terms, phrases, and acronyms.
Be creative, while still meeting the requirements of the blog’s content listed above. The Blackboard Blog Tool will allow you to include text, images, links, multimedia, mash-ups, and attachments to your blog entry.
Second, responding to those who comment will foster dialogue. After your initial blog post, you must provide at least one comment to another student’s blog. You should be sure to respond to everyone who comments on your blog. It is best to post your initial entry early so that you have time to respond and can receive full credit.
To create your blog, you will utilize the Blog Tool in Blackboard. This is accessed in the left main menu of your course under Course Tools. The following Blackboard resource can assist you in accessing the tool and creating your blog.
Your blog post should be a minimum of 1,400 words, and you must reply to at least one other student with a minimum of 100 words. While the format of your post is not required to be in APA style, keep in mind that you must provide strong evidence and/or references to support your opinions. References should appear at the bottom of your post.
