Question 12 40 / 40 pts (TCOs 3 and 8) You have been asked by a committee of student success coaches to investigate why the rate at which freshman students post to their course threaded discussions is lower than the rate for other groups of students. Explain how the structural-functionalist perspective would analyze and explain the low posting rate. (In other words, consider the contributing factors that the structural-functionalist perspective would focus on in trying to explain the reasons for the low rate of students posting to their threads.) Then discuss a solution that a functionalist might use to encourage freshman students to post. Your Answer: Honestly speaking from my perspective, many students love to tend to be lazy and use the excuse that they didn't have time to complete any thread of discussion. A lot of students like to procrastinate and do it when they feel like it. In other words, they would do it last minute. The solution to this is, when you have little time to yourself, take the time and get it done before you run out of time. It also should meet the requirements as well. Chapter 1 covers the basic elements of the core sociological theories. In addressing the first part of this question, students will need to demonstrate that they understand the basic ideas and concepts of functional theory. In addressing the second part of this
question, students will need to demonstrate that they can offer a solution to the problem based on functionalist theory. Question 13 40 / 40 pts (TCOs 6 and 7) Identify and define the four stages in the life course of a social movement. Your Answer:
