ASSIGNMENT Review: Before you complete the three steps of this assignment, review the three theoretical frameworks of sociology as well as the three key terms from this lesson that are listed below. Three theoretical frameworks of sociology: Social-conflict approach: Also known as conflict theory , the social-conflict approach views society as being composed of groups that compete for scarce resources. This approach uses a macro-level orientation, meaning that it looks at entire communities, cities, countries, and so on. Structural-functional approach: The structural-functional approach sees society as a complex system whose parts work together to promote solidarity and stability. This approach also uses a macro-level orientation.
Symbolic-interaction approach: The symbolic-interaction approach views society as a product of the everyday interactions of individuals and composed of symbols that people use to establish meaning and communicate with one another. This approach uses a micro-level orientation. Key terms: Ethnicity: A shared identity based on cultural elements such as heritage, language, and religion. Race: A socially constructed group of people who share similar physical characteristics that members of a society consider important and use to distinguish that group from other groups. Racism: Systematic mistreatment based on race, historically against people of color.
