Sociological theories and concept

I have attached PowerPoint slides for notes to help.

Purpose: For this assignment, you will demonstrate your ability to apply your sociological imagination to better explain current events. You can use your textbook and notes to help. This assignment will help you think more critically about the news and other media you consume on a daily basis, as well as to better understand and critique arguments using a sociological perspective.

Task: Your task is to identify one of the news articles from the list below that you are interested in writing about. Then, in your written assignment ( 1 page, 12 pt. font, single-spaced, with 1-inch margins on all sides) you will identify at least two sociological theories and/or concepts from our class materials and discuss how they can help better explain what is happening in the article. You should not simply recite what an article says, but instead, add some sociology in order to better explain what is happening around us. I must mention here that it is more important that you understand rather than agree with what you have read. Below are some tips that may help you get started.

  1. Sociological theories and concepts: Incorporate and explain at least two sociological ideas, theories, concepts into your response (10 pts each).
  2. Page length, grammar, spelling, and logic: Write in complete sentences and be sure to use proper grammar and spell-check. Your paper should be at minimum 1 page (5 pts.). Let your work reflect your best self. Proofread before you upload your assignment.
