Sociology journal

timer Asked: Feb 22nd, 2016

Question description

Read or listen to the “The Way We Weren’t: The Myth and Reality of the ‘Traditional Family’” audio from the preeminent family historian and scholar Stephanie Coontz in your Module 3 folder in MySocLab.

For this journal entry, you may choose to discuss your own experiences or those of a close friend or family member. If you do choose to interview someone for your Milestone 1 journal entry, you will have to interview them for Milestone 2 and 3 as well.

Below is the outline that you will use to write your journal entry. I pulled it from your Milestone 1 rubric located in your Assignment Guidelines and Rubric folder. Read through this outline and use it as a guide as you write your journal entry. Your journal entry should be organized like the outline. You should have an introduction that covers all of the points in the outline, a few body paragraphs that cover points two and three (and all of the sub-points) in the outline, and a strong conclusion that brings all of your points together. Be sure to use examples to back-up each of your points.
