Writing assignment #1: introduction of your sociological imagination

It has only been a few weeks since you were introduced to sociology, but I hope that you are just as enchanted as I was when I took Soc 1….For this week’s writing assignment, scan the textbook, the news, or your everyday lives. Pick an issue that intrigues you. Describe this issue and what makes it sociological. How would a sociologist understand the issue that you identified…? Try to reference at least one course reading (the text or the readings on Moodle) as you explain the sociological significance of the issue that you identified.

Your write up should be 1-2 pages in length (double spaced, one inch margins, 12 point font, MLA format)

Here are some wide areas for you to think about that you might draw a more narrow example/idea from:

  • Police Brutality
  • The Media and Sexuality
  • Plastic Surgery Trends
  • Technology & Society — selfies, cell phones, facebook….
  • The High Costs of Education
  • Obesity
  • Same Sex Marriage
  • The Death Penalty
  • Terrorism
  • Racial Climate in the US 
  • Immigration
  • Health Inequality
  • The Role of Animals in Society
  • Food Inequality

You will be graded based on the following criteria:

  • Identification of an Issue 15 Points
  • Sociological Explanation of the Issue 15 points
  • Reference to at Least 1 Course Reading 10 Points (you can always cite Mills’s The Sociological Imagination)
  • Formatting (MLA format, page length, inclusion of a works cited page) 10 Points

Well done. I just needed to rephrase a few things, but overall good.

This week's paper was written really well; however, I could immediately ascertain that a different writer had written this paper because there was some minor formatting errors that needed to be corrected. Also, I had to re-write a couple of sentences, but it was not anything major to request a revision for. Overall, the paper was good, but I would like to see consistency in the papers regardless of different writers.
