Find a recent news article that addresses a topic: culture, society, socialization, groups, organizations, sexuality, or deviance. Employ your understanding of these building blocks of society in your sociological analysis of the article. Use your sociological imagination with attention to problems of function, conflict, symbolic interaction, and/or the social construction of reality to prepare a response and mini-analysis of the article. Think about the larger social, political, cultural and/or economic issues that are at stake in the situation addressed by the article. The first paragraph should summarize the topic in 1-3 concise sentences and should then provide a response to the story. The second paragraph should be a mini-analysis of the larger social issues at play in the story.
