5-6 pages, double-spaced, 1-inch margins, 12-point font. Title page with your name, date, class and assignment title (Paper #1 is fine). The title page and the works cited page DO NOT count toward the page total. MLA format. If you are struggling with how to format information, I recommend Purdue University’s OWL (Online Writing Lab) for help. Sources and Works Cited Page: You must use the four Sociological perspectives we learned about in class (Functionalism, Conflict, Feminist, Symbolic Interactionist). You are also expected to cite at least one two outside sources. The outside sources must be from peer reviewed, scholarly journals.
You will also need to cite the video. This means you will have a total of at least THREE sources on your works cited page (two outside sources and the movie). The link for the video is as follows: https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/frontline/film/left-behind-america/ Your task: Demonstrate your grasp of the material by providing a critical analysis of the trends featured in “Left Behind America” using the four Sociological perspectives we discussed in class. For example, you could tell me what a Conflict theorist would focus on and how they might see things. You repeat this with three additional theories. Once you have given the interpretations from each perspective, please answer the following question: Based on the evidence provided in the video, what would you propose as a potential remedy to any of the problems presented? For example, How would you lessen the impact of the opioid epidemic on families? What about poverty? You must cite the movie in your works cited page. You must also cite one of your assigned reading and one outside source in your paper and the works cited page.
