The purpose of this assignment is to relate a movie to one of the three major sociological perspectives (symbolic interactionism, functionalism, or conflict theory). The student will need to think about how the movie’s characters, storyline, setting, etc. might be used to explain the main ideas of ONE of these theoretical frameworks. This assignment is a four-paragraph writing project. It will be completed outside of class
Paragraph one should include the introduction with a BRIEF summary of the movie plot. In paragraph two define the theoretical perspective you will use. What are the main ideas of the perspective, who are the leading supporters of the perspective, etc? Do not plagiarize these points. In paragraph three provide examples of how the theoretical perspective you chose is illustrate-d in your movie. That is, what happens in the movie that can be understood using the theory you selected. This is the most important paragraph as it contains the most pertinent information. Paragraph four will be the conclusion or wrap-up of the paper.
Your symbolic interactionism, functionalism, or conflict theory paper should include an introduction, a body, and a conclusion. Also, support your answers with the course’s readings and at least two scholarly journal articles. The article’s purpose is to support your positions, claims, and observations, in addition to your textbook. Sources ProQuest and EBSCOhost are great sites to find resources. Also, write in a concise and logical, using excellent grammar and style techniques. Additionally, the quality of your writing dictates grading criteria. On the other hand, if you use direct quotes from books or articles, place the words you copied (use parenthesis) and cite them in-line. Also, only use sources within the five-year range.
The quotes should be complete sentences (no more, less) and should be incorporate-d in your essay to illustrate your ideas. Please, cite your sources in a clickable reference list at the end. Also, do not copy without providing proper attribution (quotation marks and in-line citations). Also, write an essay format, not in bullet form, numbering, or another list format. It would be best if you use your own words. Lastly, proofread your work and run it through Grammarly for thorough confirmation.
