SOC 100 Dr. Hillis EXAM II (Spring 2010) Remember that this is a TAKE HOME EXAM.  This exam is composed of 70 True/False   questions worth 3 points each for a total of 210 possible points. Please read questions   carefully, and answer every item.  Be sure to put your Name and PUID on the scantron. 1. Creole is a jargon of nouns and verbs, highly variable in word order, and with  little grammar; In a very short time, most adults will quickly develop rules of grammar  and syntax turning it into a pidgin language. T or F 2. Young children typically cannot be socialized in ways that go beyond their level  of development (in terms of cognition, moral reasoning, etc); On the other hand, it is  usually much easier to teach such young children new languages (relative to adults). T  or F 3. Chomsky argued that children learn language (especially grammar and syntax)  through pure behavior learning: That is, kids learn human language the same way that  dogs are taught new tricks by their owners. T or F 4. Margret   Mead’s   study   of   Arapesh   and   Mundugumor   tribes   in   New   Guinea  showed that gender is biologically fixed and universal; In other words, men are born  “masculine” and women are born “feminine” (and no amount of socialization can ever  alter these gender tendencies). T or F 5. As people mature into adulthood, socialization becomes less and less relevant; It  is important only for childhood development. T or F 6. As discussed in class, differences between the Mundugmore and Arapesh tribes’  behavior were explained totally and completely by their different cultural practices;    1  /  8

Differences between the two tribes’ environment or social needs explain little or nothing.  T or F 7. Piaget’s stages of cognitive development were pre-conventional, conventional,  and post conventional. T or F 8. Compared to parents in modern industrialized countries, those in less developed  countries are more prone to stress independent thinking in socializing their children. T  or F 9. Many criminals appear to put little planning into their crimes; Not surprisingly,  many of their crimes are poor executed and not typically very profitable. T or F 10. Children’s   preferences   in   toys   and   activities   are   simply   the   result   of   their  individual choices or preferences (which vary equally between children of both sexes);  Differential socialization plays no role with respect to kids’ toys. T or F 11. Hechter and Kanazawa argued that there are powerful informal social controls in  Japan; As a result, there is much more conformity to many informal social norms. T or F

    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.
