Social Structure And Social Interaction

Social Structure And Social Interaction

You’ve learned how important groups, roles, statuses, and social
networks are in the structure of society. In this assignment, you’ll
demonstrate what you’ve learned by identifying and describing
examples from your own life. You will also have a chance
to practice some smart strategies for managing your digital
presence in your own “online” social networks.
Instructions: Complete both parts of the assignment by following
the instructions below.
PART A: YOUR STATUS SET, ROLES, AND ROLE PROBLEMS
1) Status Set:
a) List a status set that includes at least five
statuses that you currently have.
• Remember: A status is simply a position you
fill in society. It may be a job title, but it could
also include a position you fill within a family
or a community. For more information,
review Section 4.3 in your webtext.
2
b) Label each status in your status set as ascribed,
achieved, or master.
• Remember: An ascribed status is one you’re
born with and have no control over. An
achieved status is reached through your own
efforts or simply good or bad luck. A master
status is so important that it overrides your
other statuses. For more information, review
Section 4.3 in your webtext.
2) Roles:
a) Choose one status from your status set.
b) Describe the role that is associated with the
status.
c) Describe how you learned that role.
• Remember: A role is the behavior expected
of someone with a certain status. For more
information, review Section 4.4 in your
webtext.
3) Role Conflict:
a) Choose two statuses from your status set.
b) Describe a time when you experienced a conflict
because of the demands of your two different
roles associated with those statuses.
c) List at least two different ways you could have
resolved the conflict. For example, could you
ask someone for help? Or could you go online to
research a possible solution?
d) Describe the approach you took to resolve the
conflict. What was the result? Would you do
things differently next time?
