    Write a 700-word response to one bullet at the end of the chapter.

Sociology matters because it raises your awareness of cultural patterns you would otherwise take for granted.

  • What culture and/or subcultures do you belong to? Have you ever questioned your culture’s norms and values?
  • How does your culture relate to cultures in other societies? Do you feel comfortable in mainstream society?

Sociology matters, too, because it shows you how you became who you are.

  • How do you view yourself as you interact with others around you? How do you think you formed this view of yourself?
  • What people, groups, or social institutions have been particularly important in helping you to define who you are?
