Final Paper Instructions SOC 102 Social Problems -- Walker Those who study sociology are interested in both real-world events and in big ideas. But bridging the gap between day-to-day reality and abstract, theoretical thought sometimes poses a challenge. A case study is a conceptual tool that may make this process easier. A case study is a detailed investigation of a particular event or series of events that serves to illuminate or make claims about a larger social problem. It is grounded in actual, really-occurring practices, while also gesturing toward broader theoretical concerns. Building off your group presentation, your task is develop a case study centered on a major debate, conflict, or struggle in contemporary US society centering on significant social problem. For the purpose of simplicity and brevity, we recommend that you confine your case study to a narrow and clearly-defined time period, and limit your focus to a single instance involving a small number of competing perspectives..

    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.
