Discussion: Creating Positive Social Change

In the Week 1 Discussion, you used your sociological imagination to better understand a value or behavior. In Week 3, you completed the Rough Draft Essay Worksheet to help you organize your thoughts for writing the Final Essay due in Week 6. For the Final Essay, you will explore a social issue or problem within a social institution through the lens of at least one of the sociological perspectives. To help you further prepare for writing the Final Essay, in this week’s discussion you will apply your sociological imagination to the specific social issue or problem you plan to explore in your Final Essay. By using your sociological imagination to better understand the complex interactions that contribute to issues or problems in society, you can better understand your role in creating positive social change.
