I need support with this Sociology question so I can learn better.
Answer only 3 of the 4 questions below; they are each worth 5 points. These questions ask you to apply your sociological imagination and knowledge to social issues and data presented in linked articles below. You will need to read the linked article fully in order to accurately answer the question.
Questions are about this article by Professor Jennifer Lee. Read the article in FULL before you attempt to start answering your three questions. Be sure to directly explain each sociological term underlined below:
1) Why isn’t high educational attainment for Asian-Americans simply a question of culture, according to Lee? In your first paragraph explain the social structure of culture: its component parts, and how they relate to each other (see Week 4 lecture on structure, institutions and cultures). In your second paragraph, explain how Lee’s argument about hyper-selectivity challenges the model minority myth.
2) Does Lee’s argument about immigrant selectivity reflect a social constructionist, conflict theory or a functionalist view of race? In your first paragraph, explain the theoretical framework(s) you think Lee is employing as fully as you can, noting how this theoretical tradition understands the sociological concept of race. In your second paragraph, provide evidence from the Lee article to support your response to this question.
3) Based on your understanding of sociological research methodology, reconstruct two sociological research questions that seem to have guided Professor Lee’s research based on the data and argument she presents. First, explain what constitutes a sociological research question. Then formulate two questions that you think she has sought to answer through her empirical research. Identify the independent and dependent variables in each question, a possible hypothesis, and the research method Lee used to test the relationship between these variables.
4) What do the findings about educational attainment among the children of Mexican immigrants in LA County suggest about the relationship between ascribed and achieved status in socio-economic mobility? In your first paragraph, explain these forms of status and how they relate to each other. In your second paragraph, apply these concepts to Lee’s argument about mobility.
