Journal 1 is due Saturday before midnight. I have attached a sample journal that I wrote to help you guide you for this first writing assignment. There are some suggestions for you also on each of the journal assignments. Make sure you edit your work, reference your author, and/or links if you will be using them in your journal. The personal immersion is your ability to connect the sociological imagination/perspective, it’s not an opinion piece.
By now you have read Ch.1 “The Sociological Perspective”, and have been exposed to the birth of Sociology, and the three major Sociological Paradigms we apply.

Instructions

Discussion Topic questions and post your answers to the topic on the
Discussion Board. Your contribution to the topic should be clear,
complete, and accurate.
Questions
Being in poverty is really a combination of individual and structural reasons. Compare the structural theory of poverty to individual
explanations or personal responsibility.
When thinking about solving poverty, we need to “think big and act
small.” Government interventions can only go so far. What are micro-interventions, and how can they help fight against poverty?

of unbiased language or stereotype. (10 points). Number each question.
Post 250 words. (Do not meet minimum evaluation criteria – 0 points)
Personal reflections – brief example of social life (10 points)

Social Justice Question

I do understand that this topic is quite complicated and has lots of sides to it. I was able to find out that the majority of countries are quite restrictive when it comes to the availability of firearms to civilians but there are a few countries, such as the United States, that are rather liberal regarding this.
I found it to be quite interesting and decided to delve into different articles regarding opinions on gun control in the United States. However, I didn’t expect these sorts of polarized opinions and they really confuse me. On the one side, there are proponents of strict firearms regulation yet some of these activists also rally for defunding the police force. On the other side, there are advocates for the availability of firearms that don’t consider the number of firearm incidents in the country.
I would think that if a criminal wants to have a gun by their side, they will get their hands on a firearm despite laws. Still, this is a little too simplistic and I need your help with analyzing all the sides of an issue. I guess it would be better to look for some scientific articles or whatever but I do not know where to begin my search. Also, I’m quite afraid of sounding biased towards any side of the question of firearms regulation but the academic community is so polarized.
That is why I need your help with making a proper analysis about gun control in the United States and probably compare it to other countries? This could be a great idea, yet I don’t know what countries would be great for comparison in terms of population and other social and economic factors.
Do you see my problem? I have several ideas, yet nothing in particular. Please, help me to make something out of these ideas and create a proper essay with an adequate thesis statement. I would be grateful for any tips or suggestions on how to expand the thoughts I brought up earlier!

Week 2: Social Behaviors

You can use the post below I need a reply for as a sample also

Savannah-
There are a lot of agents that affect our social behavior, but three came to mind immediately for me; family, religion, and our peers.
Our families influence our social behaviors in an obvious way. Whatever values and rules we are raised with and taught as children stick with us into adulthood, and it is really hard to break free of some of those mindsets as adults because we are essentially undoing 18 years of our lives. I was taught as a child that you always respond with “yes, sir” and “yes, ma’am” when speaking to anyone older than you or above you, such as a teacher or a boss. When I moved west to Boise, I got a lot of weird looks from teachers and employers when I spoke to them this way, but for me it was just normal.
Religion impacts our social behavior in a very obvious way as well, religious beliefs typically mean that you are taught to treat everyone with respect and love, and you are generally expected to be a nice person. I was raised in a non-denominational Christian church and was taught many of these things, and while I let go of some of the values I was taught simply because I feel they no longer apply to us as a society, I still hold acceptance and kindness dear to my heart.
And finally, our peers. Our peers affect our behavior in an often less obvious way, unless they are downright peer pressuring us into change. I mentioned in my other discussion post that I was not raised in a nice area, and with this came friends that were close to me, but also didn’t have much. For many of them, including myself, this meant our parents weren’t around much and there wasn’t a lot of supervision. I went from a great student with straight A’s and an indescribable drive to be better, to a child who ran around shouting profanities and making messes where I shouldn’t have been. I have since found myself again, thank goodness, but I didn’t realize I had changed at all until I left that area when I got older and realized that my behavior was not okay at all.
