sociology final paper


Question Description

Dear Sociology 1 Students,

Your final paper (which is worth 200 points/20% of your grade) will be due by 5pm, Friday, December 6th.

For the final paper, I want you to write 100-150 words that expresses the most impactful lesson you learned during each week of this Sociology 1 course. That means you will produce ten distinct entries of 100-150 words each, and each entry will convey just one distinct/specific lesson you learned during that week. As stated in the syllabus, here are the ten distinct units of this Sociology 1 course:

Week 1: Sociology and Common Sense

Week 2: Norms, Sanctions

Week 3: Classical Theorists and Their Ideas (Part I)

Week 4: Classical Theorists and Their Ideas (Part II)

Week 5: Basic Debate: Choice and Constraint

Week 6: Social Class

Week 7: Race Matters

Week 8: Doing Gender

Week 9: Identity and Intersectionality

Week 10: The Sociological Imagination

In summary, you will produce a final paper that is 1000-1500 words, and this paper will highlight ten of the most important lessons you learned in Sociology 1. Throughout, as you draft this final paper, you should primarily draw upon lecture content, in-class exercises, and your own notes. Writing an introduction and conclusion is strongly encouraged.

You will be primarily graded on (1) the clarity with which you articulate your ideas and (2) demonstration of Sociological Growth/Development.

Please submit your final paper to Canvas by 5pm, December 6th. Late papers will not be accepted for credit.

And all notes in

understanding of the societies and changing dynamics. Also, common sense helps one evaluate
their behavior and decisions thus adopting knowledgeable reflections to conventional aspects in
life. Such influences personal beliefs and position in society.
Secondly, norms and sanctions are beliefs and values held by society. The fascinating thing
about this lesson was the comprehension of the social norms that bind the community together. I
realized that norms are community-specific and typically define proper and inappropriate behavior
for a particular people. Besides, sanctions govern people’s behavior thus ensuring social order.
