In our discussions of gender and sex we distinguished between the two and talked about the dominant and most socially valued versions of masculinity and femininity. in a 2 page essay, fully discuss, using examples where possible and necessary.
You are expected to demonstrate an ability to think critically and analytically about the issues discussed during this course. While you are encouraged to express your own views and reflect upon your own life experiences, it is important to remember that there is a difference between sociological analysis (based on evidence and logical reasoning) and purely personal experience/opinion (based on uncritical acceptance of commonsense). Your opinion and reflections MUST be informed by theoretical concepts and MUST provide reference to the literature on the issues and in support of your essay (PPLEASE ask for clarification on this if you are confused or unsure).
The main evaluation criteria for your essays are:
• Critical Thinking
• Analytical skills and abilities
• Organization of thoughts and materials
• Following guidelines as set out in the course and in the course outline
• Clear and concise expression and presentation of ideas and arguments
• Academic writing and referencing
• Spelling, grammar, consistent referencing etc.…….
I had the group read two pieces, “Engaging with the Social World,” and then “Sociology as Scientific Discourse for SOCY 401.” In that latter piece, I look at Jeffrey Alexander’s 1988 position that the core elements to a social theory
involve (i) the question of order, (ii) a theory of action, (iii) a theory the allocation of resources, and (iv) a theory of
the internalization of values, ideas, etc. So students didn’t have to go back to Alexander or Alexander and Colomy, although they certainly could but I think there is enough in “Sociology as Scientific Discourse” to give students an
idea of what I was looking for in the essay.
So students had two options really:
First, students could take any social theorist whose work interests them and provide an overview of the main ideas in that theorist’s perspective,
perhaps keeping in mind the four core elements that Alexander emphasizes (order, action, allocation,
internalization) and then engage in a more critical assessment of the theorist’s theory with respect to how
adequate the theory of order is in his/her theory, or how adequate is the theory of action? So that in the end,
students would give an overview and then a critical assessment of the theory.
The second option is to simply think about an issue that is of great interest to you and then write about it. That is
really the option that I think you wanted to follow, which gives you a lot of freedom about how you structure your
Earlier, you had written that for your paper, you would focus on Bourdieu’s reading of the “Paradox of the
Sociologist” and how he highlights how political powers and theories can affect social structures and ideologies.
You said that you would use the other two Bourdieu readings to discuss how his theory affects society and who
they hinder versus benefit. To apply contemporary views while relating them to more course content, you said that you would support your argument with Laslet’s journal on structure, agency and gender. Relating the work to
contemporary views on the mother’s role in family agencies and precarious sexuality.

The Power of Narratives & Imagination: According to Charles and Rah (2019), as our social reality is constructed, “the social imagination plays a significant role in the formation and sustaining of that social reality” (p. 24). 1) How is our reality about race socially constructed? 2) In what ways do egalitarianism and color-blind racism feed this reality? 3) How does our culture play a role in how we view race?

Pick your favorite show. Any show is appropriate but the emphasis should be placed on human behavior (not sporting events or documentaries). Take detailed notes as you go about the
characters. How are they dressed? What are their bodies like? Their faces? What do they do for a living? Are they rich, poor, or middle class? What race or ethnicity are they? How do they refer
to themselves? What is their age? Etc. One episode is likely not enough, so use a show you’ve been watching for a bit.
Share your findings with the class. Do not simply list the characteristics you found, but discuss what it means that the characters were portrayed in such a way. The characters are all DESIGNED,
meaning their clothing style, their speech, their job, their issues, their family structure, etc. are all specifically chosen. What purpose does this serve for YOUR show and its characters? Then, use
one or more of the three major theoretical perspectives to explain your findings (i.e. do you find that your show aligns more with the conflict, structural-functional or symbolic perspective?)
Be respectful of others
Do not initiate or participate in personal attacks
Do not use profanity
Do not post items for sale (including textbooks)
Do not post solicitations for businesses

I have the right to remove any posts or comments that do not follow these guidelines or that provide inaccurate information.
As an alternative to commenting on your classmates’ posts on each discussion, you will each be responsible for “moderating” one discussion post. Your duties will be to read and
respond to the class for that particular discussion post. I’ve split the roster between the seven modules and posted the list of students who will be responsible for each discussion post (the show I chose is THE FRESH PRINCE OF BELAIR)
Neighborhood Declaration (10 points): Send an email to Professor indicating what neighborhood you will be focusing on for your assignments and why. You should pick a neighborhood in which you lived at some point during your lifetime. If you have lived in more than one neighborhood, you can choose whichever neighborhood you are more interested in learning more about. Keep in mind that you will need to interview someone who has lived in the neighborhood for at least 10 years. You will be focusing on neighborhood changes.
The COVID-19 pandemic sheds light on many areas of sociological interest. For example, not all groups have been affected uniformly in terms of contracting the illness itself and dealing with those consequences, which include death, disability, large medical bills, and children becoming orphans. Social policies related to limiting the spread of COVID-19 have not been equitable. For example, remote schooling has further disadvantaged some children, and not all workers have jobs conducive to working from home. Some subpopulations were at greater risk of consuming misinformation about vaccines while others lacked access to the vaccines.
1. Choose one aspect of the COVID-19 pandemic that illustrates inequality in the United States. For example, your topic could explore the relationship between death rates and race or remote schooling and social class. Begin by explaining why you chose your topic.
2. How is your COVID-19 topic related to inequality in the United States? How is your COVID-19 topic related to inequality around the world?
3. Why might sociologists be interested in studying COVID-19 and its consequences? Identify three specific concepts learned in this course and explain how they support your answer
