Course Description:
SO208 Social Inequality(LE)An analysis of patterns of social and economic inequality in American society as well as societies in other times and places. Examines theories of the causes of inequality for individuals and society, and the patterns and causes of social mobility. 3:0:3

Educational Philosophy:

To promote positive social interaction throughout the course. Learning takes place when a student reads, questions, and writes it down which will be accomplished through weekly reading assignments, discussions, essay questions, exams, and a core assessment essay. My goal as an instructor is for the student to obtain the learning outcomes listed in this social inequality course.

Socrates Method: To have the willingness to call everything into question and determination to accept nothing less than an adequate account of the nature of things.

Learning Outcomes:
  Core Learning Outcomes

  1. Describe and explain different patterns of social and economic inequality, and formal and informal systems of stratification and opportunity structures, within their historical and comparative national and international contexts – especially in light of both absolute and shifting standards of relative deprivation.
  2. Explore and compare theories of the causes of and the consequences of inequality for individuals and society.
  3. Recognize the roles of status, power, and access to resources within a society, and illustrate these ideas with real world examples.
  4. Classify and understand various strategies of resistance commonly employed by subordinate groups; and evaluate their relative success.
  5. Explain the major causes and consequences of prejudice, discrimination, and aggression as they enforce existing patterns of inequality.
  6. Identify the operation of persistent modern forms of inequality, such as class, race or ethnicity, and gender, as well as more recently recognized systems of stratification.
  7. Analyze how culture, socialization, and false consciousness reinforce and perpetuate inequalities.
  8. Understand the mechanisms of intergenerational and intragenerational mobility and status attainment.
  9. Distinguish how relative status interacts with political participation, economic opportunity, educational attainment, and mass culture to reinforce, rectify, or create new inequalities.

SO208: SOCIAL INEQUALITY


Core Assessment (New for July, 2006)


 


GENERAL NOTES


The Core Assessment assignment for this class will be a major essay that integrates, analyzes, applies, and critiques several sociological concepts and research findings from this course individually, together, and with additional sources from your own literature review and archival study.


You must incorporate the findings from at least five outside sources of original academic research in this essay.  You may also include additional sources for examples or background information, but only reputable, peer-reviewed academic sources will count toward the reference requirements of your essays.  This means that magazines, newspapers, professional periodicals, or internet sources are only appropriate for examples and illustrations in this project — if you have any questions as to whether a specific source is acceptable for your essay, you should ask your instructor rather than guess.  Also, focus on articles or books presenting original research or theories, not on those reviewing others' works or editorializing about opposing approaches.  Reference works, textbooks, and literature reviews are all excellent places to begin your search, but you must find and read the original in order to develop your own reaction.  Ask your instructor for source approval if in doubt.


You should also consider incorporating relevant and reputable statistical and other social scientific data collected by researchers, governments, and other agencies and organizations.  A wealth of such archived data is publicly accessible through the Internet, and their use can help you better understand your issue and develop a stronger analysis and critique. Again, if in doubt, ask your instructor for approval of your data source.


If you do not properly cite those external sources that contributed to your work, then you are guilty of plagiarism.  This will not be tolerated and may result in immediate and serious academic penalties.  If you have any questions as to when and how to use citations and references in you essays, please contact your instructor.  Your final essay will also be formatted according to the relevant portions of the American Psychological Association Style Guide.  The main text of your essay will consist of no more than 3,500 words (or about fifteen pages).  While it possible to construct a successful essay in fewer words, this assignment is comprehensive and detailed enough that most students will find it a challenge to successfully address all of its points in the allotted space.  Begin work on your essay early and leave plenty of time for revision to assure the best possible grade.


 


SO208 CORE ASSESSMENT


Begin by identifying yourself on the dimensions commonly associated with social inequalities: social class (income, wealth, (current and intended) education level, occupational prestige (associated with current or planned career), race, ethnicity, and gender.  In addition, you might also identify yourself on dimensions associated with less traditional inequalities, such as national origin,, sexual identity or preference, age, weight, able-bodiedness, and so forth.  Explain where you fit and how that affects the life chances for you and others like you.  Use theoretical concepts and empirical findings from class materials, other relevant research, and archival data sources to describe and analyze your “place” in the world.  Why do you think our society stratifies individuals and groups on these dimensions and not others?  Use important theoretical concepts to perform this analysis.  Discuss how various ideas might be synthesized to produce a better explanation.


Then select two people who differ from you on several of these dimensions.  Talk to them and ask them where they think they fit in our society's opportunity structure and how they think it affects their life chances.  Compare their assessment with your own analysis of their position and with available data.  Compare and contrast all three of your positions in the opportunity structure.  Do they perceive themselves differently than you did?  Use the theories and concepts from the class to explain any differences between your respective objective chances and subjective assessments.  Do you each have accurate or inaccurate expectations?  Why?


Who has the greatest advantages and disadvantages among your three examples?  Why?  How?  Which attributes have given each of you the greatest advantages and disadvantages?  How do the dimensions interact with one another to produce additional effects (for example, it is different to be white and female, white and male, or black and male, etc.)?  Suggest what individual choices and public policies would be most likely to even out the life chances among your cases.  How likely are these to come about?


Project yourself twenty years into the future.  Are these inequalities likely to persist?  Why or why not?  Where would you expect each of you to be in that time?  Why?  How do these subjective expectations correspond with the major applicable theories of inequality and with relevant trend data?


Finally, evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your analysis, and of the conceptual tools and social scientific data you used in your efforts.  If the general public, or members of the groups you analyze in your essay, were to know what you now know, what would be the individual and social consequences, if any?  Why?  Explain and justify all assertions with appropriate logic and evidence.

Class Assessment:

Chapter Discussions

There will be a Chp. Discussion link on each of the Weekly Menus. When you access the Chp. Discussion link here is what you will see:

  • A timetable (due date and due time) for the completion of your Chapter Discussions "main posts" and replies.
  • There will be a Discussion Topic for each Chapter from Social Inequality: Forms, Causes, and Consequences that is due to be read for that week.
  • The successful completion of each Chapter Discussion assignment is worth 20 points. Total Points Possible = 160 for the semester.

You MUST access the Documents link on the Course Home menu then read AND print the Discussions Overview document, this will explain, IN DETAIL, all of the requirements for Chapter Discussions.

Web Discussions

There will be a Web Discussion link on each of the Weekly Menus. When you access the Web Discussion link here is what you will see:

  • A timetable (due date and due time) for the completion of your Web Discussion "main post" and reply.
  • There will be one (1) topic for discussion. A web-based reading/document will be available, you must read that document.
  • You must post your "response" to the topic (this is your Main Post) AND at least one (1) reply to a fellow students Main Post. 
  • The successful completion of each Web Discussion assignment is worth 20 points. Total Points Possible = 140 for the semester.

You MUST access the Documents link on the Course Home menu the read AND print the Discussions Overview document, this will explain, IN DETAIL, all of the requirements for Web Discussions.

Writing Assignments - An Overview

There are several "flavors" of writing assignments in this course. A brief description of those assignments is provided here, and then when you get into the class, a more detailed description will be available:

  • Email / Student Introduction - The very first week of the class you will be required to do make sure you can use PirateMail to send and reply to emails between you and me. You will also be required to "post" a Student Introduction using the Virtual Cafe link on the Course Home menu so all of us can get to know you a bit. better. There are no points for this assignment, BUT if it is not completed in a timely manner, 20 points will be taken off your final point total at the end of the semester.
  • Essay Assignments - The Essay Assignment will consist of several questions from the assigned reading in the text. You will be expected to answer the questions in detail, using information from the text AND supplying meaningful examples to demonstrate your understanding of the theory or concept. This CANNOT be done in one/two sentences. I expect, at least, two quality paragraphs for each answer, and in this class a "quality paragraph" is more than a couple of sentences. The KEY is always providing examples as part of your answers. The successful completion of each Essay Assignment is worth 30 points. Total Points Possible = 240 for the semester.
  • Core Assessment Research Paper - this is a major assignment that is due at the end of Week 8. You MUST select the Course Assessment link on the Course Home Menu, then read AND print the Core Assessment Research Paper document as soon as possible. This assignment is worth 20% of your grade. Total Points = 200.

Weekly Quizzes

Week 2 thru Week 7 will include a "quiz" covering key terms from the assigned chapter readings. The quizzes will be taken online using eCollege. They will consist of 10 multiple choice questions. You will have 30 minutes to complete the quiz, eCollege will grade it automatically.

Each question is worth one (1) point, so for each quiz a total of 10 points can be earned. There are six (6) quizzes during the semester. The questions you see will be chosen from a "pool" of questions for the assigned chapters, so no one student gets exactly the same quiz. Keep in mind these "pools" of questions will be used to create the Final Proctored Exam. Total Points = 60.

Final Proctored Exam

There will be a required, proctored final exam, at the end of the semester. It will consist of Multiple Choice drawn from the pools of questions created for the Weekly Quizzes. On the Week 6 Menu a Final Review document will be posted, highlighting the information that will be covered in the Final Exam. Keep in mind that the Final Exam is CLOSED book, No Notes! Your job is to get your Proctor Forms completed as soon as they are available from the College of Distance Learning on the eCollege Homepage. Remember the Proctor System is turned off on Friday, of Week 6, so the sooner you get this taken care of, the better! Total Points = 200.
