While all of the social identities impact society, for the purposes of this paper, you are to choose one social identity (gender, race, ethnicity, social class, age, sexuality, or nationality) which was specifically addressed in this course syllabus to reflect on, critically analyze, and present a clear and well-defined case for change regarding some aspect of the K-12 school system and the role of that social identity. Most importantly, you are to convince the recipient of your research, why you think the proposal for change regarding the selected social identity is important and needs changed. You also can include one or more sociological theorist which are a part of your texts this semester, as part of your support for your argument. • You can write to a past or current stakeholder about a real situation that you are aware of in a specific school. For example, you might write to the principal of a school about a situation you observed in the school and draw on your real life experiences. Or, you could write to a teacher from the high school about an experience you had in high school (or a high school activity, tradition, or ritual) that you now view differently because of what you have learned about social identities. You need to discuss the following: • Introduction: an overview of the essay, including a discussion of the social identity you have selected for examination and a thesis statement. (1 page) • Summarize the incident/issue/concern that you have and WHY this is of concern to you. (2 pages) • Finally, present your case for change. Critically analyze and examine the significance the social identity has upon your topic. Draw on the concepts, research, readings, and class discussions from the course to support your analysis and proposed position. (2 pages) • Conclusion: summarize what you have learned and discussed above, how what you have learned in this course challenges or corroborates your previous socialization and thoughts, and what it means to you as a future parent or _(your career goal)__ as you reflect on the incident/issue of concern. (1 page). Guidelines • The paper should be written in a casual persuasive manner, but in a relatively formal manner, as you would any other paper. • Page length -5-6 pages: review guidelines for all written work in your syllabus. (5-6 pages means complete pages, with 1 inch margins, 12 point font, Times New Roman font, double spaced, no excessive spacing or gaps, cover page, abstract, and reference page). Page guidelines given above are suggestive only. • No credit will awarded for vague ideas or platitudes (e.g., teachers should appreciate diversity or celebrate all cultures). You must give specific academic arguments based on the academic knowledge you have gained during this course and your life experiences. • Reference – at least five peer readings (Library). You can also include course videos, class discussions, texts, handouts, power points, etc. as needed. Refer to APA Manual to learn how to reference citations in an academic paper. • Hard copy and no late papers allow as this is a final exam paper. • If you have any questions, please call or email me. Please do not wait until the last minute as this paper will take time to complete.
