  3. Discuss one (1) sociological theory that relates to the selected contributing factor to obesity. 

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
  • To keep this essay short and manageable, your only sources for the essay should be the article from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute and the sections noted in your text. For this reason, APA citations or references are not required for this assignment.
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page is not included in the required assignment page length. 

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

  • Define the basic concepts used in the discipline of sociology.
  • Explain the major theoretical paradigms of sociology.
  • Use technology and information resources to research issues in sociology.
  • Write clearly and concisely about sociology using proper writing mechanics. 

Assignment 2: Field Observation

 

Purpose: The purpose of this two-step exercise is for you to conduct inductive and deductive research using qualitative methods. 

Note: it is important that you conduct the observations as two distinct events during this class; ‘recalling’ past observations is not the same as purposefully observing your surroundings from a sociological perspective, and applying two different types of reasoning to one observation will not be ‘truthful’ or successful.

The purpose of this exercise if for you to observe one social setting or social artifact to begin to detect patterns in human behavior – observance of norms and potentially behaviors that deviate from the norm.  This week’s exercise includes two parts.  First, without any prep work, you will need to go to one public place (or conduct content analysis with your social artifact) and observe the people/artifact for 25 minutes.  Social Setting: Note people’s behavior, their demeanor, their reactions/interactions to/with each other.  Social artifact: from second to second (for TV), or page to page (for print), Note themes, sounds (i.. music), texture of page (i.e. ads in magazine), etc.  Second, you will develop a research design with research problem, hypothesis and operational definitions for variables; then you will conduct another 25 minutes of observations.

Disclaimer
Originality of attachments will be verified by Turnitin. Both you and your instructor will receive the results.

 

Part 1

1)      Choose whether or not you will be conducting non-participant observation in a social setting, or content analysis of a social artifact

a.       Social setting: this should be a public place such as a park, mall, restaurant, etc.

b.      Social artifact: this may be ads in a particular magazine; one television show, a time-block of commercials, etc.

2)      For your inductive approach, you will simply choose a time and location/artifact for where you are going to conduct your observations

3)       

a.       Social Setting: Go to the specified location and proceed with your observations. 

                                                              i.      You must be a keen social observer; a ‘peeping Tom’ in the sociological sense.  Take handwritten (recommended) and/or mental notes of: 

1.      details about your chosen location (time of day, lighting, furniture, plants, sounds, temperature, smell, vibe/energy, etc)

2.      the people around you, not only their behavior but general information about their sociodemographic characteristics (age, race/ethnicity, gender, SES, etc);

3.      your thoughts and feelings while making observations

  1. Social Artifact: At a specified time (i.e. when a particular show is), carefully observe your social artifact

                                                              i.      Content analysis provides a sustained, systematic way to observe and measure the portrayal of that reality, as opposed to the quick, impressionistic way that we normally read consume media.  Take handwritten notes of:

1.      Details about the setting in the images you see (lighting, furniture, background, vibe/energy portrayed); if audio-visual (note sounds such as pitch of voice, music, etc)

2.      Note details about the people portrayed, not only their behavior but general information about their sociodemographic characteristics (age, race/ethnicity, gender, SES, sexuality);

4)      When you have returned from you observation, type up your notes.  Review your notes for patterns in behavior, socio-demographic characteristics, etc. 

5)      Write-up your observations using ‘thick description’ of the location (i.e. building you were in (what is the architecture like), descriptions of people there (in terms of socio-demographic characteristics: age, race/ethnicity, gender, socio-economic status), sounds, smells, temperature, time of day and week, etc);

6)      Analyze trends you identified in your observations/content analysis.  What is a possible sociological/theoretical explanation for the trends you observed?  This is best done by using sources to provide credibility to your analyses.

 

Part 2

7)       Based on your initial observations and written analyses, develop a specific research problem/question to be further investigated (i.e. the variation in behavior of males versus females when entering a store with a glass store front)

8)      Identify the key variables you are going to be investigating, and develop an operational definition for each of them  (this should include at least two variables, but not more than four). Your operational definitions will help to provide parameters for how record variations in your observations.

9)      Write a hypothesis for what you expect to observe in your second round of observations.

10)  Repeat observations/content analysis

a.       Social Setting – this should be done at the same social setting at approximately the same time of day (if you can do this one week later on the same day, it would be great!)

b.      Social Artifact – this should be done at the same time (if commercial block), or with the same show, or with a different issue of the same magazine , etc.

11)  When you have returned from you observation, type up your notes.  Review your notes for patterns in behavior, socio-demographic characteristics, etc. and how they corresponded with your expectations/hypothesis 

12)  Describe observations using ‘thick description’ of the location (i.e. building you were in (what is the architecture like), descriptions of people there (in terms of socio-demographic characteristics: age, race/ethnicity, gender, socio-economic status), sounds, smells, temperature, time of day and week, etc);

13)  Analyze your observations in terms of how they supported/did not support your hypothesis. 

14)  What is a possible sociological/theoretical explanation for the trends you observed?  This is best done by using sources to provide credibility to your analyses.

15)  Discuss the differences between your inductive observations and your deductive observations.  How did the way you were observing change?  How did what you observed change?

16)  Briefly describe your thoughts/feelings in the two steps.  Did you prefer one approach to the other?  Why/why not?


Evaluate a social concern, issue, event, or phenomenon from a sociological perspective; examine the social construction of personal identity; or evaluate the roots of a social movement.  The research paper needs to include key sociological concepts and theories while demonstrating the sociological perspective throughout.  The paper should be a minimum of 4-5 pages long in addition to having a title and reference page. It should demonstrate a strong thesis statement supported by research from at least 5 different sources. Include in-text citations from references using APA format throughout the paper.

The purpose of the myth/reality paper is to conduct some basic research and determine if common statements about society that we are exposed to are really true or are simply myths.

ï‚· After choosing ONE of the THREE options below, conduct some preliminary library research on the topic to determine if the statement is a myth or is actually true. If the statement is true, then please justify and/or explain why it is true. If the statement is found to be a myth, then you must also find evidence to support what the reality is!

Be sure to read the statement very closely! If you are unclear at all as to what I am asking, then do not hesitate to email me for clarification.

ï‚· Please note that you must quote sociological/social science-related books, peer-reviewed journals, and/or online peer-reviewed journal articlesto make your claim. If you are unsure about an article (i.e. whether it is peer-reviewed or not), then please ask before using it! Generally speaking, standard “online” articles are not peer-reviewed (unless they are found through a library website and are also printed in bound journals in the library).

ï‚· Note that there may be contradictory evidence available for a given topic, so as long as you support your claim with research then you will be successful (even if your response differs from another student’s response). You must cite the sources you use and you must use at least 2 distinct “peer-reviewed” sources.

ï‚· Please provide all of the relevant info for me to find the sources you have used. For books, this includes: author name, year published, book title, publishing co, and city/state of publication. For articles, this includes: author name, year of publication, article title, journal name, volume (and edition, if necessary), and INCLUSIVE page numbers. If any part of this information is missing, then I will NOT count the book/article as a valid source and your grade will be drastically reduced. Sources USED should be listed on a separate page/section of your paper.

ï‚· You must cite the sources you list in your works cited page/section in the actual TEXT of the paper. If you do not directly use a source in the paper, then it cannot be listed on your works cited page. Simply reading an article/book and “generally” using it to influence your paper is not a source that can be counted toward the 2 source minimum.

ï‚· Your in-text citations must conform to the following standard(s):

o General paraphrase or broad idea from a work:

 .. (Smith 2009).

o Direct quote from a range of pages inside a work:

 ” (Smith 2009: 43-45).

o Direct quote from a specific page of a work:

 .” (Smith 2009: 47).

When the work has 2-3 authors, your citation should look like this:

 ” (Smith and Johnson 2009: 43).

 ” (Smith, Johnson and Anderson 2009: 43).

When the work has 4 or more authors, your citation should look like this:

ï‚· …………..” (Smith et al. 2009: 43).

ï‚· The paper must be at least 1 page single-spaced (although it can be as long as you wish!).

Paper Options:

ï‚· Statement #1: The difference in IQ test scores between African Americans and non-Hispanic white Americans can be attributed almost entirely to different patterns of socialization and environmental factors.

ï‚· Statement #2: Minority group members (i.e. non-white Americans) constitute the largest group incarcerated in U.S. prisons (that is, in terms of raw numbers of inmates—not as a proportion/percentage).

ï‚· Statement #3: Based on his popular writings, Karl Marx would have clearly supported the Soviet and Chinese versions of communism that existed in the 20th century.

 

Grading Rubric: your grade will be based on a combination of the following 5 criteria.

1) Do you follow the formatting and structural guidelines?

2) Is your myth paper well written? This means that there are no errors, you use language properly, and you have the correct sentence structure.

3) Is the argument that you present in your response compelling and creative in nature?

4) Do you cite peer-reviewed material thoroughly and adequately and is it used to determine if the statement is a myth or not?

5) If the statement is found to be a myth, do you use research to discover the truth about this topic?

* Important note: A major portion of your grade will be based on the peer-reviewed research that you use and cite. As such, if your paper is well-written, but you fail to use peer-reviewed work, then your grade will be drastically reduced.
