Description select one of the following options. Respond to the questions for the selected option and share a reflection on the topic. Consider the course materials in your reflection as well, focusing on a sociological analysis of the topic in society. Also share what has potentially impacted your views on those topics. Your journal reflection should be at least 1 1/2 pages in length. 1. What is meant by the statement that race is more of a social construct than biological? Visit the Understandingrace.org site and review several of the activities on the site, such as those under Lived Experience, then view the video A Girl Like Me (under “Lived Experience,” also available on Youtube A Girl Like Me). Next, share a reflection on the activities and video, addressing race in the U.S. and relating it to topics in the chapter (such as prejudice, privilege, racism, etc.). What are areas where privilege and/or prejudice may impact your everyday life? What did you learn about race in the U.S.? 2. What are the distinctions in sociology between the terms sex and gender? What importance does the differentiation between the terms have in modern society? Also discuss gender stratification and provide examples of gender stratification from the U.S. or other societies. Find a recent news piece (within the last year) related to gender or provide an example of how gender is portrayed in the media (such as advertisements shown on GenderAds.com). Share a link to your selected source or image and describe the connection to the course topics this week (such as sexism or gender roles). How is gender typically depicted in the media? What has impacted your beliefs about gender in your everyday life? How has the perception of gender changed in society? 3. Select a current event related to the readings from Week 5 (choose a report such as an article, news video, etc. on a story within the last year). Examples include news related to race, gender, privilege, or aging. Briefly describe the event/topic and analyze it using knowledge you have gained from the course, clearly addressing the connection of the current event to the course topics. Share a link for your source and discuss the connection to the course materials using the sociological imagination. What are your thoughts on the topic? What have you learned from the media and the course about this topic? How is this topic related to sociology and our everyday lives?
