This writing project focuses on the three major theoretical perspectives in Sociology -symbolic interactionism, functionalism and conflict theory. Each of these theories is like a lens through which we can view social life. Therefore, it is necessary to have an understanding of each theory.
The student is to define the major points of each perspective in a 1000 word essay. Points will be deducted if the student does not meet the word count. In the assignment include at least one sociologist who has been identified with each theoretical perspective and provide an example that demonstrates an understanding of the perspective. You can begin your research on the theoretical perspectives in the subsection of the text, “Theoretical Perspectives in Sociology” which is located in Chapter one. A comprehensive definition of each is presented by the author of the text. However, I would encourage you to gather and present additional material on the frameworks.
