Learning Goal: I’m working on a writing multi-part question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.

Assignment Overview

Using the textbook and Online Library, write a 2-3 page essay in 12-point font using APA standards that present your findings from interviews with two different individuals regarding their positions in society. You may use this list of suggested questions to conduct your interview.

These interviews can be conducted on co-workers, neighbors, friends, etc. They may be conducted over the phone, via video chat, or in person. Do not use first and last names. You may use pseudonyms or initials.

Your paper should address the following:

  3. Analyze each person’s specific components of culture and relate them to his/her stratified position in society.
  4. Apply one of the sociological perspectives to each of the individuals’ life stories. Why did you choose this particular perspective? How does it explain each person’s life and life choices?
