Increasingly, funding bodies want to know the logic that makes sense of the plan, in narrative form. This is so they can be assured of a greater clarity of purpose in order to provide for increased accountability for scarce funds and resources.

You will develop and submit an individual program-logic narrative for a 'youth mental health first-aid' lesson plan for a two-hour session with a nominated 'vulnerable' group in a tertiary setting using a salutogenic approach.

This assignment builds on skills learned and attitudes developed in the tutorials and allows you to demonstrate higher order thinking in terms of applying what you have learned about lesson planning to a new situation.

You will have plenty exposure to this assignment and what exactly a program logic narrative is.

This assignment should be equivalent to 1100-words. It is due at 9am, 26 May 2014. Assessment comprises 30% of your overall mark.
