SOC 186 Week 2 Discussion: Writing Development (Step 2)
Continuing with the topic from your Week 1 Discussion post, complete a discussion post of 2-3 paragraphs (150-300 words) describing how the topic you have chosen can be related to the sociological concepts of culture and the process of socialization or social structures as discussed in Chapters 2, 3, and 4 of your text, and in the Canvas materials. Remember, your ultimate goal is to combine your discussion posts into a paper in the last week of this course, so keep in mind what you have written before as you complete this assignment. Be sure to cite any sources you use. You should be using your textbook as a source in this assignment. Any other sources are optional.
Peer Feedback – Due by Day 7
Respond to at least one of your peers (preferably a peer that no one else has responded to so that everyone may both give and receive peer feedback) with any ideas you have that will help them develop their topic towards a final paper at the end of the term. Be sure that your responses are substantive and constructive.
Discussions play an integral role in monitoring your course participation throughout the term. You should check back to the weekly discussions multiple times throughout the week to engage in the discussion with your professor and peers. Participation is only counted during the week in which this discussion is assigned. Be sure to appropriately cite any sources you use to support your responses with standard APA citations. Answer the prompt question(s) thoroughly using a minimum of 150-200 words and respond to as many of your peers as possible – note that responses to 1 of your peers are required for full credit. Be sure to answer any additional questions asked by your professor in the discussion threads. Your initial post is due by Day 3 of the current week, and follow up posts to your peers are due on Day 7!
