Of the different forms of social structure described by Durkheim, Tonnies, and Lenski, which comes closest to matching your social setting? Use the following terms in your explanation: status, role, primary group, and secondary group. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ postings. My family lives in a small community in northwestern Wisconsin about 60 miles East of Minneapolis/St. Paul. Tonnie’s Geimeinschaft (p.119) would best describe our social setting. Although diminishing farming is still a major industry in our area, you cannot go too far and not see signs of a farm. Our community isn’t so small that everyone knows everyone however we do share a “feeling of community” (p.119 table 5-3). If your relatives weren’t farmers then it’s possible you work in one of the many manufacturers in town so it’s not uncommon find comparable backgrounds. Because we are tight-knit community crime is very low and there is shock when a major crime happens here.

    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.
