Select a social problem you are interested in writing about. The topic you select can address either a general (e.g., "poverty") or specific (e.g., "homelessness among women") topic.
Find 3 articles from from a social science journal (see directions below). These articles should be ones not included in the course materials.
Write a brief review of each of the three articles.
Select one of the sociological perspectives: functionalism, conflict theory, symbolic interactionism. Interpret the social problem from this perspective. Your interpretation should reflect what you have learned from your four readings. Be specific in your interpretation about what you learned from each reading. Also, be specific about which sociological perspective you are using in your paper (e.g., "This writer will use the Structure-Functional perspective to explain...."). Be sure to back up your opinion with citations!
Suggest a social policy to mitigate the negative consequences of the social problem.
