UCR What Is Sociology the Four Sociological Theories & Culture Discussion – Assignment Help

I need help with a Sociology question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.

What Is Sociology

What is Sociology? If we look at the definition, Sociology is a scientific way of thinking about society and its influence on human groups. From this definition, we really do not get a clear picture that we can use to discuss what society is.

Discussion Preparation:

Part One:

  • Read Chapters
  • Do Circle Exercise
  • Understand Theories

Part Two:

Read Chapters 1 and 2

Circle Exercise

  • On a piece of paper draw a circle, does this look like society? I hope not.
  • Fill in the circle with smaller circles. We are getting closer.
  • Fill in the smaller circles with what you think, makes up our society. These are called social institutions. Social institutions are the established and organized systems of social behavior with a particular and recognized purpose. I will start you, Family is a Social Institution. Save this paper as a reference for the semester.
  • Post all the social institutions that you can think of in this discussion.

Points To Remember:

  • Understanding diversity is crucial to understanding society.
  • Patterns of social change and social structures are patterned by diverse group experiences.

Sociological Theories

  • Functionalism interprets each part of society in terms of how it contributes to the stability of the whole.
    Conflict theory sees society as organized around the unequal distribution of resources and held together through power and coercion.
  • Symbolic interaction theory emphasizes the role of individuals in giving meaning to social behavior, thereby creating society.
  • Feminist theory is the analysis of women and men in society and is intended to improve women’s lives.

Discussion Part One

  • For each of these theories, discuss and give examples of how it applies to our society. Post in your discussion.

I assisted you through chapter 1 to help develop how we will be approaching our discussions.

Discussion Part Two

  • Define culture.
  • Using your culture, discuss how it fits in and affects how you function within society.
  • Discuss how media affects culture and how it affects society.

Remember to keep up on your discussions and participate in reading your classmates posts and make comments to them. The discussions are very important in building this course. They are your best form of communication and understanding. Please contact me or post questions and I will answer them for you. All discussions are due one week after posting.
