I have two essay questions as part of my final exam for Sociology. Here are the instructions:
In a single Word document, please type your response to the 2 essay questions listed below. Each answer should be approximately 2 pages, double spaced (approximately 4 pages total). The paper should be Times New Roman, 12-point font with 1” margins. Please feel free to use your textbook and notes to help you answer these questions.
- List 3 sociological concepts, ideas, or facts that you have learned about social stratification (inequalities across class, race/ethnicity, and gender) that you feel will help you in your nursing career. Explain why these three things are relevant to nursing and being a nurse, and explain how you will apply them. You will be graded on the appropriateness of the 3 items you select and the quality of your argument for how they can be applied practically.
- Identify a deviant act in society (this cannot come from your text or lecturette notes) and discuss what aspects of the deviance a 1) functionalist, 2) conflict, and 3) interactionist sociologist would care about and why. Be sure to explain why this is a deviant act. You will be graded on your ability to properly identify an act of deviance and your application of the different sociological perspectives to understanding it.
