SOC Respond To Two Prompts


Original discussion posts:


Answer both the questions in one single post rather than respond to each question in different posts.

You should answer all parts of the questions you chose to answer.

Number your answers corresponding to the prompt numbers listed above, and split your answers into separate paragraphs.

Use of concepts and theories wherever relevant is highly recommended for full grade. It will also help you in your exams and while writing your essay.

Students must first post their answers before they can view or reply to other students’ posts







Chapter 9 – Social Stratification in the United States


3-First, define social stratification, and explain it using any two theoretical perspectives with examples for each view. Next, describe any one model of global stratification and critique it by discussing the merits and flaws of the model. (CSLO 2, USLOs 4.1, 4.2)



Chapter 10 – Global Inequality


4-Explain the concepts of subjective, absolute, and relative poverty. Does it make sense that poverty is in the eye of the beholder? When you see a homeless person, is your reaction different if he/she is seemingly content versus begging? Why? (CSLO 5, USLO 4.7)




Additional notes:


You can use pictures, graphs, pie charts, etc. in your answers, but not for your answers.

Always support your opinions with scholastic sources.

When you use outside material, please use in-text citations and give references at the end of your post in APA format. Otherwise, it is termed as Plagiarism.

Plagiarism is a critical offense according to Galen policies. Your answers should not be simple ‘copy and paste’ from an outside source. In such instances, even though you give references, they will not be considered your answers. The first time I spot plagiarism, you will be given a zero with a warning. The 2nd time will be a write-up. Please be careful about plagiarism.
