Project #49425 - Socioautobiography Assignment

Your socioautobiography assignment is due this week. The purpose of this assignment is to give you the opportunity to apply the sociological imagination to your everyday life: to make connections between your everyday life and the broad sociocultural structures within which you live. In this assignment, you will reference appropriate Terminal Course Objectives (TCOs) that relate to your socioautobiography. You can find the TCOs in this course listed in the Syllabus and in the weekly objectives. This assignment can be related to any and all of the TCOs.

The Socioautobiography is a reflective paper that allows you the opportunity to explore the interconnections between biography (a slice of your life), the social structure, and culture. In preparation for this paper, please read Socioautobiography Guidelines posted in Doc Sharing for detailed assignment instructions and grading rubric.

·       Papers should contain 3-to 4-pages of text, double-spaced (this does not include the title page).

·       Refer to and properly use at least six sociological concepts covered in the lectures or textbook reading.

·       Underline and boldface these concepts.

 

The final paper will be due at the end of Week 5. It should be three- to four-pages in length and may be in any format you choose. Feel free to get creative. You may choose to do a standard APA style paper or you can do your socioautobiography as a news story, movie review of your life, letter home to family, obituary, poem, lyrics, dialogue, old time radio program, or Shakespearean play whatever format you choose. Be sure to identify your format, double-space your paper, and correctly use a minimum of six sociological concepts covered in the weekly readings or lecture. Your six concepts should be in boldface and underlined. Consider the following example:

As I think about my college experience, because of my lack of English language skills, I realized that I was at a disadvantage with other students who were from upper-middle-class suburbs. I grew up in a farming community and, while there was the expectation that farm kids were going off to college, the community’s educational policy was based on the idea that farm kids would take over the family farm. As such, learning proper academic language was not a high priority (TCO 5 and TCO 9).

·       Connect your concepts to the TCOs. Indicate the TCOs covered in parentheses, as demonstrated in the assignment instructions.

TCO's are as follow 

1 Given a social problem such as homelessness, use sociological imagination to interpret the problem, assess possible solutions, and illustrate how a social scientist may view this issue in a cultural context.
2 Given a hypothesis such as, "Children who eat a good breakfast do better in school than children who eat a poor breakfast," apply the scientific method and use appropriate scientific techniques in refining the hypothesis, applying operational definitions, and selecting the appropriate research method for validating the hypothesis.
3 Given a social issue such as, "Who really receives welfare?" compare and contrast the major sociological theories, determine if one theory seems more applicable to this issue than another, and explain why.
4 Given a sample reading, such as Horace Miner's Nacirema (1959), or a film such as Lord of the Flies, analyze the meaning of culture within society and demonstrate how the concepts of culture and society are inseparable.
5 Given a case study dealing with issues of racial and ethnic discrimination within social organizations, identify areas of social stratification, differentiate between racial and ethnic groups, and illustrate stereotypes within the case study.
6 Given a series of short readings on the interactions of ethnic or racial groups in North America, analyze these interactions based on the cultural characteristics of the groups.
7 Given a case study on a multicultural issue beyond race and ethnicity, such as the aging North American population, changing family forms, gay lifestyles, etc., analyze this issue in the context of a subgroup within a larger "normative" population and evaluate the extent to which the subgroup fits in with society's overall norms.
8 Given a film involving a multicultural issue or issues, such as Higher LearningA Class Divided, or Do the Right Thing, extrapolate at least three major and two minor sociological concepts and demonstrate in a well written essay how these concepts are sociologically related through the film's storyline.
9

Given a case study involving an applied sociological situation, such as the current state of the educational system in a state or province, analyze the situation from a sociological perspective in order to provide basic guidelines for improving the system.
