Description After completing this week’s viewing and reading, please focus this week’s writing on one of the questions below. Remember: the idea here is to think carefully about the question(s) you’ve chosen, but you don’t need to worry as much about producing a perfectly polished text. Your response paper should be about 1.5 pages. Choose one of the following: 1. What’s one idea about the social sciences that you encountered in this week’s materials that you found interesting? Why is it interesting to you? 2. Thinking like a social scientist, tentatively identify one pattern you find intriguing among the questions, methods, or possible solutions in the social science materials for this week. What is it, and why is it intriguing to you? 3. What does at least one of this week’s faculty interviews say about the relevance of social science disciplines or approaches? Drawing on evidence from your own experience (evidence with which you are very familiar), why is what you’ve identified important for you? Please make sure to cite readings and videos in answering these questions. When you refer to materials from the readings or videos, be sure to include a summary of the material to help us understand what you saw there. In addition, when you connect to what’s relevant, intriguing, or otherwise attention-capturing, please use evidence about experiences familiar to you (your own experiences or those of others-but something that matters to you.)
