Soci-243 Essay Questions for Exam 1 Due: at the beginning of final exam Direction: Choose one question from below. Define key terms, and provide enough evidences and examples to support your claim by citing appropriate materials . Follow the basic techniques and guidelines for writing; pay attention to run-ons, long sentences, and make sure that you include thesis statement and topic sentences. Do not copy any lecture materials and/or readings – you need to paraphrase them, if using. Please specify your choice of question in the header. Format: write brief introduction and conclusion. The length of the paper depends on how efficiently you can respond to the question – so long as you provide enough information in your writing, short essays are acceptable. You may cite your textbook (including chapters that are not assigned to read), additional reading materials, and other materials presented in class. When citing the readings from the class, just include in-text citation (author’s last name and page number, if directly quoting); you do not have to create reference list for this assignment. Please also submit your electronic copy of paper via SafeAssign prior to coming to class. Grading: I will examine how well you answered the question (including meeting the requirements), clarity of writing, and organization/format of your paper. The essay component makes up 90% of the exam. *** I will only accept stapled, hard copies at the beginning of our exam. *** You are allowed to seek assistance from tutors at the Writing Center. Question #1: Social Change & Responsibility When discussing inequality and ways to move toward a socially just system, some people say things like “well, minority groups bring on inequality themselves, so don’t call me an oppressor.” In trying to open the doors to change, Collins offers ways to address this problem. Summarize what Collins proposes as a step toward alleviating social inequalities. Where do Collins and other authors in this section place the responsibility for social problems/change? Do they address problems on a more individual, interpersonal, or institutional level? Cite at least one more source from the text to support your claim (in addition to Collins). Using the knowledge you have gained from readings and lecture, how do you think social change and social problems are most effectively addressed? Be certain to support your assertions. Question #2: Institutions and Maintaining Inequality This question asks you to consider the policies and practices of institutions that maintain social inequality. Explain the relationship between social inequality and life chances. Discuss how one (1) of the following institutions, the state, family, economy, or media participates in maintaining social inequality. Cite at least 3 readings from the text to support your claim (each point you make needs to be supported by at least one source). Why do the policies and practices of institutions continue to maintain inequality? Question #3: Inequality in Educational System Using at least 3 readings from the text, explain how social status such as race, class, and gender affect/shape educational experiences of children in the U.S. You need to touch upon the effects of all the three social categories (each point you make needs to be supported by at least one source). What needs to be done to alleviate such inequality in the educational system?
