In this assignment, you will provide an outline for your course project. The outline should identify
concepts you will be using to analyze, provide a brief summary of why each concept may be relevant,
and identify some resources that you intend to use.
The purpose of the outline is to make sure that you are actively thinking about and working on your final
project. It may be helpful, as we go through each unit, to determine which concepts in that unit you feel
are relevant to your Sociology of Me project and begin your analysis at that time. Complete the
Step 1: Section Outline
Outline what you plan to discuss in each section (including identifying concepts you will use). The
sections are outlined below and list potential concepts that could be used.
Culture and Socialization: Examine the impact culture and socialization has had on your life.
Socialization, agents of socialization, culture, culture, values, language, norms, subculture,
counterculture, ethnocentrism, and cultural relativism.
Social Structure and Groups: Discuss the impact social structure and groups have had on your life.
Social structure, hierarchy, power, bureaucracy, role, status, primary groups, secondary groups, and
group think.
Education: Discuss how a sociologist would explain your experience with education.
Hidden curriculum, tracking, social stratification, and stereotypes.
Professional field: Discuss the main sociological issues that affect your field of study.
All concepts from other sections are relevant.
Technology and Media: Analyze the role technology and media in your everyday life. Media, digital divide, framing, and social change.
Step 2: Identify Preliminary Supporting Resources
Your sociological analysis of yourself should be supported by credible, scholarly sources, such as those
from academic journals. You should identify at least one scholarly source for each section above. Provide
a brief summary of each source identified. Use appropriate citations and include a list of your resources
in APA format. Framing Deviance
Appearance, Role-Taking, and Reactions to Deviance: Some Experimental Findings" (link in the Resources
Sociologists argue that deviance that is socially constructed and our understanding of what is deviance
can vary from situation to situation. Address the following questions based on your review of Deseran
and Chung:
How does our understanding of deviance differ by group (for example, between children and adults or
people of different races)?
What are the norms that determine what is considered deviant?
Can you identify any deviant acts that may be considered deviant for one group but not for another?
Why is this the case?
How would a sociologist explain the different experiences (in terms of deviance) different groups have
with deviance?
Can you think of any similar examples in your everyday life?
Read Deseran and Chung's 1979 article, "Appearance, Role-Taking, and Reactions to Deviance: Some
Experimental Findings," in Social Psychology Quarterly, volume 42, issue 4, pages 426–430. The Policy Implications of Incarceration
The incarceration rate in the United States has seen a rapid increase in recent periods. As a result, the
United States has the largest number of prisoners than any other nation. Our understanding of deviance
and this increase in incarceration rates has significant policy implications. Respond to the following:
From a sociological perspective, what factors have contributed to this increase in incarceration?
What alternative forms of punishment could you suggest?
What can the United States do to address the increase in incarceration rates?
How might this affect how we understand or define criminal acts?
Introduce and discuss the policy (or policies) you discovered in your earlier research on crime and
deviance in this unit. Analysis of High Schools

Type (public, private, religious).
Socioeconomic composition.
Racial composition.
Rural, urban, suburban.
Percentage of graduates attending college.

unit. Respond to the following:

your high school experience?
What statistics did you find on the National Center for Education Statistics Web site that relate best to
your high school experience? Explain.

Sciences: National Center for Education Statistics. (n.d.).
State profiles. U.S. Department of Education: Institute for Education
Sciences: National Center for Education Statistics. (n.d.).
Fast facts. Cultural differences in education
(I chose China)
A country's education system is strongly related to its culture. Using the Internet, research the
educational system of another country.
What similarities and differences do you note between your chosen country and the United States?
What do you think explains any similarities or differences?
How does this relate to cultural differences?
Based on the studies for this week, what do you feel are the biggest challenges facing education in the
United States?
What solutions for these problems can you suggest? Discussing Peer Review
Why do you think peer review is important?
What are important questions to ask when reviewing a peer's paper?
What do you think are important elements of peer review?
What concerns do you have regarding peer review?
Guidelines for Effective Peer Review. U.S. Healthcare and You
With the aging of the population and attempted reform to our healthcare system, healthcare has
become a prominent issue in the media today. Refer to the video (see Resources Area), "World-Class
Healthcare: Why Isn't the U.S. the Best?", and respond to the following:
Why does the United States have poorer health outcomes even though we spend more on healthcare
than other countries around the world?
How can differences between American and Canadian healthcare be explained by culture?
Now, reflect back on your experience with healthcare and respond to the following:
How has your experience been impacted by social factors? For example, what kind of neighborhood did
you grow up in? What did you eat as a child? How much exercise did you get?
How might these factors have affected your health and healthcare?
How would the healthcare you receive be different if you had been born in a low-income country such
as Ethiopia?
World-Class Healthcare: Why Isn't the U.S. the Best?. Obesity and the Sociological Imagination
While we typically think of something like childhood obesity as a medical condition, we can use our
sociological imagination to further analyze this issue. Remember from Unit 1 that Mills (2013) made a
distinction between personal troubles and public issues. We can use our sociological imagination to
look at obesity as a public issue–one that has social and cultural causes.
Refer back to the research you conducted in your unit study. Summarize the article you found on
childhood obesity and respond to the following:
What does the article discuss?
What are its main points?
Does the article understand childhood obesity as a personal trouble or public issue?
Using your sociological imagination, what do you believe are the social and cultural components of our
society that lead to childhood obesity?
