1.The three sociological paradigms often overlap with each other. Choose two sociologists discussed in this chapter. Discuss how his/her ideas connect to all three sociological paradigms. From my understand of the reading, a paradigm is a basic image of society that guides thinking and research, it’s a viewpoint and perspective. The three sociological paradigms are one Functionalism which is a society viewed as a complex system whose parts work together to promote stability, order and common beliefs.
My friends are constantly asking why I care what others think and I still haven’t really figured that out yet. Maybe it’s because of my insecurities, or because all I really want is to accepted. I guess a lot of factors and life experiences contribute to how I feel about others opinions. Everyone is like that; they act and treat people certain ways for different reasons. Every one acts the way they do because of something that has happened in their life.
In the video “The Lottery of Birth” they talk about how our “birth is arbitrary, but the world that greets us is not.” This means that we cannot choose how we grow up, however; the society in which we live in does and even conditions us. The society that we live in shapes us greatly, it tells us how to think, act and how to live. How we are conditioned to accept everything that happens because “there is nothing we CAN do.” It talks about how to be able to be free of these norms; we have to realize that we have been conditioned in this way and must question ourselves and react if we want to change the world in which we live in. One claim that they made was that “society condition individual in such a way as to minimize the work and moral thinking.” I agree with this claim because as young children, we are taught to always listen and do whatever the adults tells us to do, no questions asked or be punished. Teachers tell us that we have to think on our own, make our own choices, but if we have a different opinion from them, they tell us that we are wrong and that they are right.
Be sure to discuss where/how the character starts out, what events/experiences cause the character to transform, and where/how the character ends up. What does the character learn about himself/herself, others, and/or the society? 2. In The Crucible, which scene is the most significant in terms of Miller’s intended themes/messages/morals for the play? Explain why you believe the scene to be the most significant, which themes it illustrates, and how the scene illustrates these themes.
As an actor, each of your portrayals must be a singular creation derived from three sources: the given circumstances as interpreted from the script and the surrounding production; your imagination; and your personal history, including everything you have experienced, felt, read, or observed in life or fiction. C. One of the most important parts of your acting training is the observation of life itself. You
Two functions can be used to analyze alignment: Spatial attachment and subjective access. Smith states that spatial attachment is the concern of capacity of the narration to restrict itself to the actions of a single character. Subjective access describes the degree of subjectivity to each character and how it can change from character to character. The third level of engagement is allegiance. Smith notes that this is the most important form of emotional engagement.
Posey1 Ms. Margaret Wanning ENG 101 7- Oct- 2013 Brutal Realities Many of us learn at a very young age to obey those who we deem as having authority over us, and in many cases we do just that. The thought may cross our minds to use our own discretion in many situations, but the feeling of being accepted by someone we look up to reigns supreme. Even though morally we may have our own indiscretions, we make decisions based on the majority rather than the minority. Two great examples of this type of behavior are shown in, “The Lottery”, by Chris Abani and “Salvation”, by Langston Hughes. In “The Lottery”, written by, Chris Abani the story tells of a 10- year- old whose perception of his aunt changes one day at a local market when
Orwell says that these motives exist in different degrees in all writers. According to Orwell people will react best when all four motives are present and he also said that he was somewhat forced into becoming a pamphleteer because he was unaware of his political loyalties. From reading his essay I gathered that descriptive writing could be written without all four motives but other than that the writing cannot be whole unless all four motives are displayed. Similar to Orwell’s view on the political motive for writing Linda Hogan believes that writing comes from the community and goes back to the community. Hogan believes that writing should be used to ask and answer the deepest of all questions, both internal and external.
We enter this world but an empty canvas. From birth, we slowly but surely are shaped to fit the beliefs, values and standards of the family, society and culture of which we are a part of. As we continue our development and evolution within the family, we are dependent upon our caregivers for nurturing, nourishment and emotional sustenance. Parents readily both positively and negatively reinforce behaviors according to their own values and ideas about what is and isn’t acceptable behavior. Actively taking part in shaping ones sense of reality due to their past and past experiences.
