This diagnosis will be utilized for making recommendations for the solution of the problem that was in focus. Chapter 1 Answer should include: What is your topic? What have others already learned? What, exactly, are your questions? What will you need to carry out research? Are there ethical concerns? What method will you use? How will you record the data? What do the data tell you? What are your conclusions? How can you share what you’ve learned?
Question 12 Not yet graded / 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 symbolic-interactionist perspective would analyze and explain the low posting rate. (In other words, consider the contributing factors that the symbolic-interactionist 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 an interactionist might use to encourage freshman students to post. Your Answer: The interactionist perspective looks at the everyday interaction among students and between students and teachers. Symbols such as the cap and gown, diploma, prom, and school mascots all play an important role. Interactionists point out that the labeling of children may limit their opportunities to break away from expected roles. For example, interactionists have studied how teachers' expectations about students' performance may impact their actual achievements through a self-fulfilling prophecy. Interactionists study how we use and interpret symbols not only to communicate with each other, but also to create and maintain impressions of ourselves, to create a sense of self, and to create and sustain what we experience as the reality of a social situation. They may do away with labeling, because this will place all students on equal ground. The problem must also be addressed and inform students that it is ok to make any mistake when posting, we are all here to learn and nobody should be looked down upon. Also, cooperation and teamwork support learning evaluation and feedback, in addition collaborating will be suggested because instruction is learned centered rather than teacher centered, this can facilitate peer interaction and cooperation as well. (Macionis, 2015) Society: The Basics, Thirteenth Edition Macionis, J.(2015). Society: The Basics. Hoboken,NJ: Pearson Education 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 interactionist 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 interactionist theory.
