What Roles Do Social Institutions Play In Your Life? In Society As A Whole? For This Assignment, You Will Evaluate Each Of The Three Sociological Perspectives (Functionalist, Conflict, And Symbolic Interactionism) On Social Institutions.

This Worksheet is designed to help you better understand the three sociological perspectives and social institutions, and to help you organize your thoughts for writing your Final Essay, due in Week 6. As you complete each section, keep in mind that you will be transferring and expanding upon this information in your Week 6 Final Essay assignment.


Compare and contrast each of the three   major sociological perspectives (functionalism, conflict, and symbolic interactionism)   discussed in Unit 2 of the Interactive Units. Be sure to address the   similarities and differences between each of the three perspectives.

Note: When looking   for similarities, consider what matches in the perspectives, or theories. How   are these things similar to each other? If you took notes while you were   reading, you would be able to review those and look for paired concepts.



Select and state one social institution   (education, family, or government, as discussed in Unit 2 of the Interactive   Units) to analyze. Identify and discuss a social issue or problem   related to the social institution.
Note: Pick a social institution that   you would enjoy exploring and reflecting upon. For example, if you are a   parent experiencing the challenges of raising a teen, you could write about   the social institution of the family.



Write three small paragraphs (2-3   sentences each)—one for each sociological perspective—in which you describe your   chosen social institution from the perspectives of functionalism, conflict,   and symbolic interactionism. For each paragraph, refer to at least one   specific example from the Interactive Units or Required Resources to support   your statements. In other words, support your ideas with evidence by   connecting them to Interactive Unit content; the Resources; or something that   you have read, heard, seen, or experienced. Cite your sources. Acceptable   citations include “According to the Stanford Social Institutions website…”,   “According to a January 5, 2015 article in the New York Times…”, and “According to Unit 2 in the Interactive   Units…”

For more information   on how to use evidence in an essay, please review the Walden Writing Center’s   material on using evidence:   http://academicguides.waldenu.edu/writingcenter/evidence



Create a rough draft of an   introduction and conclusion you might use in your Final Essay. State your thesis   statement clearly in each and support that thesis with three main points. The   introduction and conclusion should mirror each other but contain fresh   language. In other words, the conclusion should not be a word-for-word   restatement of the introduction or the thesis.
