This project was difficult, emotionally, to do, especially with a topic like physical assault. The project followed the fifth final course outcome, “understand how the knowledge, skills, and values learned in general education are interwoven and interrelated, and how they can contribute to the process of citizen leadership.” With this course outcome, my group (Alizaih Suarez, Mariah Strock, and myself) were able to create a website and brochure for not only those who have been in a domestic violence situation or had been assaulted, but for those who would like to help others, whom they might know, in a situation that has been listed. This project allowed me to connect everything into one large ball of information and share it with everyone who might find it useful and connect it to other information available. The Common Good Project also followed course learning outcome number three, “choose appropriate formats in writing for a variety of purposes” by having me to find an appropriate way to present a serious topic matter. We chose to do a brochure, instead of creating a video because physical pieces of literature is sometimes more accessible than a video, and it gives more information sometimes as well. This project had also helped me come to terms with having been a victim of aggressive stalking and assault on numerous occasions and allowed me to be an active citizen in my global community, helping others who had faced these problems and giving them a brighter future.
