Aspects of Social Understanding

[WLOs: 3] [CLOs: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5]

Prior to beginning work on this assignment, review the Week 1 and Week 2 textbook readings: Chapters 1 through 4 and Chapter 12, perform your own research, and watch the following videos:

An important aspect of public sociology is gaining an understanding of our social world and coming to informed conclusions based on what we know. Social problems can often occur due to a clash of difference in social understanding, and so sociologists can gain considerable value in understanding the nuances of different perspectives. These perspectives can also change over time as society evolves and individuals develop. The importance of this assignment is to acknowledge that there are varied forms of knowing that form our perspectives in society and presenting how these varied forms of knowing have impacts and value. This assignment is a “thought-piece” that requires you to academically support your ideas, as a presentation of your own developing and evolving social understanding.
