A one-to-two page (250-500 word) paper
Step 1 Write an essay response to the following question. Different sociological theories can have various explanations for the same phenomenon.
Consider crime rates in the US. Try to think how three sociological theories—symbolic interactionism, functionalist theory and conflict theory—would explain the kind, distribution, or changing crime rates in the US.
In your response, make sure you have an introduction, one paragraph per theory, and a conclusion.
Forum posts should be based on sociological sources other than our textbook. Each of your three required forum posts must include research from other sources than the text. Even when your forum question is based on an article, video/ audio clip or asks your opinion you must include sociological research. You must post for instance “I agree John in an arti- cle by XYZ entitled …. it states that ………..” Every week you will have an assignment and a quiz to do. As- signment must like forums include outside sociological re- search and paper citations. Do not use references from Book posted Below. Thanks again.
