sociology assignment 44

From Kennedy, Exploring the Roots of Social Theory & Inquiry:

Read Chapters 5&6 (Murray), Chapters 7&8 (Alexander) and Chapters 9&10 (Wolff).

Having read these chapters, go to pages 166-167, the end of Chapter 13; see “Assignments,” items 1 and 2.

Make an outline relevant to each author (item 1) – one for Murray, one for Alexander and one for Wolff.

Then, complete item 2 by choosing one of these three authors for whom you will construct an essay that uncovers, describes and evaluates that author’s theorizing. You may find the information in Chapter 13 helpful in writing your essay.

Guidelines for Assignment

these should be included in a bibliographic reference – no separate page is needed; place the references at the end of the text.

The length of your response is neither specified nor evaluated, yet it is to be in expository essay, paragraph form! See the writing evaluation rubric in the attachment for a general guide. Specifically, for full credit:

Respond to each question with the key point(s), idea(s) and/or term(s) presented by the author noting the page (in parentheses) from the text. Respond directly and coherently in complete sentences; make certain that you have answered the item by focusing on what has been presented in the reading.

For each question, include a specific, concrete example, preferably from your experiences or understanding. When you make reference to an example from another source that is not a personal anecdote, support your response with a citation (using APA format citations).

Finally, and to repeat, be certain to include bibliographic references at the end of the assignment, for the pdf’s and/or for the text by Kennedy. For items from class discussions, use the following: Class session, then give the date of the discussion.
