This assignment which will give you an opportunity to explore a theme from our book in detail is due by the last day of week 6.
There are four sections to this project.
You must meet the page minimums defined below and must format the project according to these guidelines:
It must be a Word document with 1 inch Margins on all sides

At the top of the first page, type your name. This should be the ONLY information provided. Do not put the date, my name, a title, or any other information.
You must provide a list of Works Cited and you must cite works that you reference in the article (use in text citations). If you are unsure about citations, you should refer to the library website and use their tutorial as a reference.
First Section: Choose a theme from your book (examples include socialization, social structure, stratification, etc).

Put them in the perspective of each of the major theoretical perspectives (functionalist, conflict, and interactionist).
This section should be approximately 1 page long.

Third Section: Apply your theme and your findings from the scholarly articles to current daily life and today’s society.
