#3: What connections do you see between how race, gender, language, and dis/ability are tied to power and/or in/equity?
You are required to turn in three 3 paged critical reading reflections (Times New Roman, 12 point font, double spaced). These should not be summaries of the readings, but instead should engage with key concepts. You will be graded on your ability to synthesize ideas, critically analyze the readings, cite evidence from the text, build connections to current day schooling, and present an organized, grammatically correct, and thematically sound paper. Substantive reference to the readings is required. Assignments are due to Canvas, please reference the TA for any additional guidelines for assignment submission.
Questions that could guide these assignments are: Was there something in the readings, course materials, or films that you had never considered? Are there ideas you agree/disagree with (make sure to base this on evidence and not opinion or emotion)? How have these ideas deepened, challenged or changed your understandings of inequity? Did any of the ideas presented help to frame experiences you have observed in schools?

Read each question carefully. Make sure you are answering what the question is asking. Do not include
filler like biographical backgrounds or explain the theorist’s other concepts, (unless they are directly relevant to the theory in question). Responses that add unnecessary filler actually work against you, as it leads me to believe that you are confused about the theory referenced in the question, and are “throwing things against the wall and hoping something sticks.”
 Remember that you are explaining the theories from the perspective of the theorists. Do not conflate
your opinions of a topic with the views of the theorists. This is not meant to be dismissive of your views
– they have a valuable place in the learning process overall. For this exam, however, your task is to
demonstrate that you understand the theories, as the theorists intended.
 Examples are not definitions or explanations. Examples can be helpful in illustrating a concept, but you
need to be able to articulate definitions and explanations clearly and concisely without relying on
examples. Only include examples in places where I ask for them, and even then, I will ask you to define
and explain something before I ask you to provide an example.
 Write in a clear and concise manner. Do not try to be too verbose. Explaining the theory accurately and
clearly is more important than trying to impress with vocabulary.
 Your responses should be based primarily on the things we covered and emphasized in class. There are a
lot of information sources available on theorists and theories, but not all these sources will address or
emphasize the same key points or address them in the same way. Responses that do not address the
key points we covered in class will have points deducted, even if the content is generally accurate
regarding the theory. This issue is common for students who do not attend class meetings and utilize
internet sources as their primary source of information.
 Do not plagiarize in any way. Some students are confused about what constitutes plagiarism. If you
plagiarize, it will show up in the TurnItIn report, and your grade will be penalized. Plagiarism includes,
but is not limited to the following:
o Directly quoting any content without proper citation and without formatting the content as a
quote (quotation marks and properly formatted in-text citation).
o Having a source in front of you and writing your response by using some of the words from the
source, but trying to change enough words that it isn’t technically plagiarism (or so students
think – if you haven’t properly cited it in text, it’s still plagiarism).
o Using a source to inform your writing (getting ideas from the source) without citing it – even if
you are using completely different wording. If something has informed your response, you need
to cite it.
o Copying parts or the entirety of the answers of your peers.
 With this said, do not rely on quotes for your answers. I want to see that you understand the concepts,
not that you know how to Google a question and pick quotes or paraphrase.
 Finally, if you are confused about something, email me.
How to complete and submit your exam
For each question, you must include the text of the question, followed by your typed response.
There are no formal word counts, but responses must fully and effectively cover the concepts. The exam is due
by 11:59 PM on Tuesday, December 6th. Late exams will be penalized 20 points for each day they are late, and
exams will not be accepted after Friday, December 9th.

Discussion Question Late postings will not be accepted. Postings will be graded

Discussion Question
Late postings will not be accepted. Postings will be graded based on academic relevance and must display some analytical ability and the criteria for grading your discussions in D2L (Discussion Grading Rubric). Postings that essentially are “verbal nods” to another’s postings (ie. “Suzanne, I totally agree with you!”) are ineffective and not appropriate. It is also ineffective to purely quote from the text—we are all reading the same materials; effective and appropriate deployment of course concepts/terms within context demonstrates comprehension and engagement.
Missed assignments CAN NOT BE MADE UP unless it is a University accepted excused absence.
Answer the following question(s). Make sure as well that you respond to three other students’ posts.
One general goal of sociology is to encourage you to develop and learn to apply your sociological imagination.
1. What is one fact about society or social life which you have learned in this course, and why is it an important issue to know about?
2. Describe your sociological imagination and discuss how it has helped you to comprehend this issue.
3. How might your sociological imagination influence the way you look at things in the future?
