Sociology Jan 25-29

On Monday, you will write your essay for the documentary, True Cost. As stated in class, you can choose one of two options: choose one perspective and provide in depth evidence or cover all three perspectives and how they relate to the global fashion industry. You should follow this format:

In the introduction you should write a brief definition of sociology, mention of current perspectives in sociology (conflict, function, symbol), introduce the documentary and give short summary, and provide your thesis statement. The rest of the essay is providing evidence from the document that shows you can apply your understanding of the perspectives. Each body paragraph should have three strong examples, and of course, you should conclude the essay with a restatement of thesis and a bold statement. Here you could include quotes or ideology from the early sociologists to weave everything together.

On Tuesday, we will start the next section, “What is culture?” I know most of you know the definition of culture, so I want to go further and get you excited and interested. You will be creating a Google Slide of an indigenous culture that you get assigned at random. You will have Tuesday and Wednesday to create this product. Here are the requirements and each are worth 10 points: 5 traits of culture from the textbook, material and nonmaterial culture,  outside influences or conflict, rituals, history, and future. You will present these to the class and you will come up with a comparative analysis for three of the cultures using a triple Venn diagram.
