WK2 CH4 Social Inequality Deviant Behavior and Socialization Analysis Questions

Question Description

I’m studying for my Sociology class and don’t understand how to answer this. Can you help me study?

WK2 Questions

Question 1:

Socialization

As humans, we become aware of ourselves as belonging to a group and we learn how to behave through the process of socialization. In addition to reading Chapter 4 of the text, you will also read Introduction to Sociology: 06 Socialization (Links to an external site.). After reading the required resources, describe the various agents of socialization and why they are important. Do socializing agents contribute to an institutionalized system of social inequality? Why or why not?

In your post, be sure to discuss how an individual’s race, class, and gender can influence the way that he or she is socialized. Support your answer with detailed examples.

Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references.

Question 2:

Deviant Behavior

For this discussion, you must read Chapter 6 of the text, Introduction to Sociology: 06 Socialization (Links to an external site.), the article, The Anomie Tradition: Explaining Rates of Deviant Behavior, Durkheim’s classic contribution (Links to an external site.), and the Anomie theory reading from Key Perspectives in Criminology, found in the ebrary database. After reading the required resources, explain why Emile Durkheim alleges that if we did not have deviants, we would create them. In other words, Durkheim is making an argument that having a group of people society considers deviant serves broader functions for society. What are these functions? Support your answer with detailed examples.

Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references.
