Professor Robert Wonser Spring 2011 Intro to Sociology Term Project/Paper Due: Check Syllabus for Due Date Term Project This project is worth a significant portion of your grade (15%). It’s the most important aspect as far as I’m concerned because it demonstrates to me your comprehension of the course material and concepts. It should also prove to be entertaining as well. Make sure that you have sufficiently covered all concepts well. I cannot stress that enough; cover the topic thoroughly. Also, make sure you have included everything asked for in each assignment (as a guideline, this will take at least 5-7 pages, but by all means do not be limited by this number). Also, don’t fluff up your papers with filler just to get added length; I can always spot this and it doesn’t bode well for your grade. Remember I want to see you critically engaged in the material; that is, show me you’re thinking and you understand the material! So use your sociological imagination when you do this assignment. Choose one of the following for your final paper. Assignment 1: Depictions of Society For this assignment you are to depict sociological concepts through photographs. Each lesson should be depicted pictorially. You are to take five photographs for each lesson. We cover 12 lessons with five pictures each for a grand total of 60 photographs. For each photograph you are to add a caption beneath it describing, using correct sociological terms, what is being depicted. It is highly recommended that you take the photographs as we cover them in the class so you will have a clear idea of the concept and if you do this correctly, and you will spread out the workload over the semester instead of procrastinating. The best way to accomplish this assignment is to create a blog to host your photos and captions ( is a good example). All photos must be your own. The captions must include a sociological description of the photograph (all terms used correctly!). On the day the final project is due you will turn in a piece of paper with your name and the link to your blog on it. Remember: five photos depicting any concept from the lesson for each of the following topics: What is sociology (ex: sociological imagination) Theories and theorists (ex: rationalization)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
