Question description

Instructional Objectives for this activity:
  • Model a personal perspective through the lens of sociology.
  • Apply the basic ideas and focus of the following three major theoretical perspectives: the structural-functional paradigm, the conflict paradigm, and the symbolic interaction paradigm.
  • Sociology is a social science. It studies human behavior, social relationships, society, and interactions. It's an interesting field as it connects so strongly to the world around us.

    For our first discussion, you will define sociology. From there, think about the role of the sociologist. Is it their job to observe society or to reform it? Are we all sociologists to some degree?

    Please respond to all of the following prompts:

    • Define sociology. Are we all sociologists to some degree?
    • Explore the role of the sociologist. In your opinion, should they observe society, or should they try to reform it?
    • Define each of the three main sociological perspectives: functionalism, conflict theory, and symbolic interactionism. Which do you think fits the most closely with how you see the world around you?
