Ashford 3: – Week 2 – Discussion 2
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
In Using logic models to bring together planning, evaluation, and action: Logic model development guide, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation (2004) defines a logic model as “a systematic and visual way to present and share your understanding of the relationships among the resources you have to operate your program, the activities you plan, and the changes or results you hope to achieve” (p. 1). Review the Theory Logic model on page 11 of the guide (adapted from WKKF’s Comprehensive Community Health Models of Michigan) and discuss whether or not their logic model is clearly understandable. In addition, select one item from each component (resources/inputs, activities, outputs, outcomes, impact) and provide a narrative of the linkage between the items. Your post should be 150 to 250 words in length.
Guided Response: Review several of your classmates’ posts and reply to at least two of your classmates by Day 7. Identify at least two ways in which your evaluation of the logic model is similar to and/or different from your classmates’ evaluations.
