Writing Guidelines


4.8. ASSESSMENT: Sociology and the Real World Paper

You will be required to write a 4-5 page, typed, double spaced (no larger than 12 point font, one
inch margins), social issue paper about something that you have experienced. You must
choose one topic from the list below.
Topic 1: Your socialization experiences as a child focusing on learned gender roles
Topic 2: Your experience with stereotypes, prejudice, and discrimination (based on race,
gender, culture, sexual orientation, mental health, disability — including learning disability, and/or
physical characteristics)
Topic 3: Your experiences with health/health care (think about access to health care/health
care costs, or health and stigma)
Topic 4: Your experiences with social stratification/social inequity and access to educational
opportunities
1) Clearly identify your topic and discuss how the issue has affected your life.
2) What have you done to overcome or deal with the issues covered?
3) How has it impacted others in our society? How have others responded to such
issues?
(Please note: You must use three sources when answering question 3 above. One reference
may be your textbook. The other sources should be scholarly articles. When in doubt, ask a
librarian or me. Please be sure to cite – in ASA format (Links to an external site.) – on a
separate “references” page).
4) Which sociological theory could you apply to your experiences? (Structural
Functionalism, Conflict Theory, Symbolic Interactionism) Use your book for guidance. For
example, how did the chapter on gender socialization tie in theory? Choose one of the three
theories and relate it in some way to your experiences. Use examples to further illustrate your
understanding of the theory. Please sure to cite your textbook on the references page.
5) Research various websites of non-profits, political, or educational organizations that
address your topic with the idea/goal of reducing the problem on a societal level (for example,
an organization created to promote gender equity/reducing the pay gap, or organizations to
improve health and/or education access based on income inequality, or organizations that
promote racial equality/tolerance). Choose one website to research in-depth. Carefully explore
the organization’s website. For the paper, describe what the organization does. What are its
goals? Then come up with one way the organization could improve. What additional resources
could they offer, or what new goals should they address? Be specific. Pretend you’ve been
hired by the organization to improve upon what they do. (Include the link to the website in your
paper.)
FORMAT
a) The first part of your paper should be an introduction to the topic or issue that you will be
discussing.
b) The main portions or the body of the paper should focus on explaining those main points and
on answering the questions on which I have asked you to elaborate (questions 1 – 5).
c) The last part of your paper should be the conclusion. This is the time to wrap up your ideas,
thoughts or ways of preventing/dealing with an issue. Go back and read your paper and make
sure any point you might have brought up has been resolved, discussed and dealt with in a
clear manner.
d) The last page will be your references page. If you use the textbook, please be aware that
public documents do not have a set standard format (for example, Purdue Owl’s website states:
Public Documents
Because the nature of public documents is so varied, the form of entry for documentation
cannot be standardized. The essential rule is to provide sufficient information so that the reader
can locate the reference easily.
So, here is how I would cite the textbook:
Openstax. 2017. Introduction to Sociology, 2nd Edition. Houston: Rice University.
Don’t forget to use check your spelling and grammar.
Note: Read over the attached rubric to get a clear understanding of what I’d like to see in your
paper.
