1. Use your own words to define the sociological imagination and then use yours to sociologically discuss this topic: children's toys. The sociological imagination is more or less a kind of deeper thinking into actions, symbols, words, and so on used in our society. How even smaller things relate to the big picture of society. When thinking about kid's toys, your mind may go to what lately has been so talked about - Barbies. Lately, it's been a popular topic talking about how Barbies are too skinny or don't have enough diversity, and so on, making them bad role models for kids. You could then venture into thinking about how perhaps Barbies themselves are symptoms of our society's skinny norm. 2. Write three sentences, each one embodying a different one of these three sociological theories (functionalism, conflict theory, and symbolic interactionism), to describe how you as a sociologist would discuss this social phenomenon: students in a classroom.
