The sociological term used in the discussion and the observation sections MUST BE the SAME term. That is, use ONE term for the paper that you will examine sociologically (define and discuss) and observe in the “real” world. The “real” world may be the actual world, TV show, movie, book, song, etc.
You must use AT LEAST 3 outside sources for the paper and these must be cited within the body of the paper as you use them and placed on the REFERENCES page at the end of the paper.
Your textbook may count as 1 of the 3 sources. The Textbook for my class is on Mcgraw-Hill Connect called “SOCIOLOGY in Modules fifth edition” by Richard T. Schaefer
