Sharing or copying these notes is illegal and could end note taking for this course LECTURE We have seven more classes this semester. I want to revisit themes as we are covering material that helps us tie up loose ends in the course. We are going to be revisiting topics on gender and some issues in the family. Then, these are going to be intersected with material on race. The product of all of this is your final exam, which will be a take-home final. By the end of next week I will prepare three or four questions; you have will have to write on two of them in essays no longer than 4 pages each. It will be due on the day our exam is scheduled. That is how we will finish up the course. Think about gender, family, and race for the essays. Part of being in college is learning how to learn, and one way you do that is by doing and receiving feedback. Let me give you a suggestion. The course started off a little slow in Berger and then the pace began to pick up and by now you should be feeling a little flooded with information about race and immigration and whatnot. In the next ten days, what you need to be doing is organizing information that has come your way from the readings, relevant media, posted study guides, and power points. Spread it all out on your living room floor and say, now how do I manage this? Let me create a shelving system. This is information about race, which part of race? This is information of Latino people and this is about gender. You need to construct or reconstruct the architecture of this class by knowing where things are, where to go and how to use it. That is the trick in university level education. You are flooded with information, and you will drown unless you figure out a system to organize that information. We started talking about the social individual. What is an individual? An individua l is located, formed and shaped by society and so forth. What is society ? It is something that we can describe, document, measure, look at the development of; it is not just vague thing, it is composed of institutions and it has structures. Not only that, it has qualitative characteristics
