The paper is due today dec 2nd APA format "For the SLO paper, are we to choose a topic in which we analyze how social class affects a SPECIFIC area or element of society? Or is the paper aimed at analyzing social class and its effects on society in general?" This is an excellent question, so I thought I would respond to the entire class. I think you should know that what I'm primarily interested in is that you really understand the consequences of social stratification, or social class. And, by the way, make sure that you know the difference between the two concepts. You may want to discuss, for instance, the impact of social class on any one of the following; family life, political orientation, physical and mental health, the criminal justice system, education, or religion. In other word, use social class as an independent variable in explaining its impact in your life on one of the suggested dependent variables, such as family life. So, in response to Jaii's question, it doesn't matter, as long as your topic is not vague. Although researching sources for this paper is not mandatory, I strongly recommend that you do so in order to provide support for your position. And if you do so, it must be APA format. The reason I selected this topic is because understanding how we're shaped by society's structures is closely related to the sociological imagination - the all-important concept developed by C. Wright Mills.
