Sociology - assestment, Essay

Length: 2000 Submission method options EASTS (online) Task Task: Choose one of the case studies from topics 9-12 and use one or two (not more than 2) theories or concepts from Topics 3-8 to critically analyse and explore the case in 2000 words (+/-10%). The case you choose may be the article itself, or the broad topics the article deals with. You will need to explore these through further research of the key issues (use only peer reviewed sociological research). You should also explore the theory further using peer reviewed sociological sources. The following issues are contained in the articles. You may choose one of these to work with as your case. If you do so make sure you use the reading as the starting point for your investigation: - rural youth suicide - families transitioning to rural living - environmental issues in urban communities - community responses to man-made environmental problems - the link between work and civil society - volunteering - sense of virtual community - incorporating technology into community planning and development In your essay you will need to make a case for how the theory, concepts or ideas can help to explain or solve the problems presented in the case study. You may also choose to argue that the theory, concepts or ideas do not help you to understand the case. Your essay will need to be carefully structured and researched. It is strongly advised that you use the feedback from your first and second assessments inform your writing, research, and understanding of ideas, concepts and theories. During the mid semester break some reading about writing case studies using theory will be made available to you. Rationale One of the main tasks of the community analyst is to apply theory to real world examples. When a sociologist undertakes such a task we look to the existing research about a subject and try to establish what the social and cultural problems are in the context we are trying to understand. When we apply theory, we quite often find that we need to apply or use a combination of theories. Sometimes the theory that we apply can help us not only understand what is going on, but also give us a solution to the problems people in the context (or event) are facing. Thus, this task consolidates your learning and brings you to a point where you can show you have been able to meet the most difficult of this subjects learning outcomes - learning outcome 5. Your essay is therefore asking you to think about a particular theory (or theories) and investigate what that theory can and can't say about a particular case. Effectively, we are asking you to analyse and evaluate a case study, and think about a theory or theories critically. Another reason you are asked to write this essay is because sociologists need to have good communication skills, particularly writing skills. We rarely get the opportunity to present our findings to a group of people face to face, instead having to write our ideas, assessments, analysis and conclusions in either reports or journal articles. Sometimes we have to write to the people we are studying in order that they are informed of what we have discovered as well. Therefore, writing skills are very important to the sociologist. We need to be able to argue that what we have discovered is reasonable, reliable and worth knowing; we also need to be able to argue that the solution we have found for a group of people is a better option than what they have now, or might be told by someone else. Therefore, being able to write down our critical thinking and argument in a way that other people can understand becomes very important. Thus, this final assessment draws your learning of community together and provides you with a document that shows the degree to which you have achieved learning outcomes 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 in the subject. Marking criteria Your essay will be assessed according to 8 Standards: 1. Knowledge and understanding of theory or theories. This is your chance to show that you have met learning outcomes 1 and 2. That is you are able to understand the structure, processes and factors influencing social life in communities and can examine these sociologically. 2. Knowledge and understanding of the case study. This standard is your opportunity to show that you can identify problems in communities (Learning outcome 3) 3. Application of the theory to the case study. This standard refers to the your capacity to use theory to assess problems in communities and use sociological ideas to solve those problems (learning outcomes 4 and 5) 4. Capacity to assess the merits of a theory (analysis) and its value to the case (application). Here we are looking for how well you can say you can analyse sociologically (learning outcomes 2 and 5) and use the theory and concepts (learning outcome 3). 5. The structure of your essay (logic of your argument). In all our involvement with communities, we need to be able to communicate clearly and logically. Thus, writing style and communications skills are important parts of being able to solve problems. This assessment is therefore an opportunity to develop those skills and directly relates to identifying community problems and solving or alleviating the affect of them (learning outcome 3). 6. Quality of your additional research. As sociologists working in communities, we often need to understand a broad range of existing research and ways others have responded to problems. By being able to research widely in quality peer reviewed literature we are better equipped to deal with these problems. It also means we can justify our judgements and make an argument for our intervention or action (analysis and evaluation). Thus it is important to be able to access quality research. Achieving well in your research means you can show you have met learning outcomes 3 and 4. 7. Writing (paragraphing, sentence structure, clarity). Again, communicating with people is important and high level writing skills helps to do that. By developing your writing you are again showing you have met learning outcome 3. 8. Referencing and formatting (APA style, always referenced where and idea is presented that is not your own). As sociologists and community analysts, we need to be able to acknowledge where our ideas came from, therefore good referencing is essential for being a good sociologist, and shows we have met learning outcome 2.
