Sociology - scientific study of social structure

Social Structure - all humans live in structural societies

general value specific norms > rules specific roles > status

3 Questions
1) who created? how were they created? (norms)
2) normative behaviors > who rewards & how
3) who punishes normative behaviors & how

live our lives in a package of norms -- comes together as roles

diffusion - the process by which things spread

informal social norms > EDL (every day life) formal social norms > MSL (major social institutions) >>> Islam

ordinance - law/rule passed by small government body (town or city)

- Patterns of behaviors individuals share with others in their group or society
- Predictability & reassurance of social behavior

ex) students in a classroom may act different - different methods of studying, taking notes, acting. However the general structure is the same….Professors lecture, students listen. exams are given, students take them

**It is the recurrent patterned interaction of people and social structures created by such interactions that grabs the attention of sociologists

Group Behavior VS Individual Behavior

-People's behavior within a group setting can not be predicted from the characteristics of individual group members.
- Group members generally tend to act like each other even when their personal preferences are not the same as the rest of their group.

- we live in groups ranging from size > family to maybe an entire society/community. all encouraged by conformity (promoted by social forces that individuals do not create and can not control)
- because of this….people who belong in similar groups tend to think, act, and feel the same way.

-because most of the members in a group believe that their group's way of thinking, feeling, and behaving are the best.

...Chapter 1 THE NATURE AND PURPOSE OF ACCOUNTING Changes from Tenth Edition The chapter has been updated. XBRL discussion has been added and more International Accounting Standards Board coverage. Approach On the first day, the usual objective is to create interest in the subject, to set the scene, and to give an overview of the course. The first part of the chapter does this. The second part of the chapter gives a fairly specific introduction to the nature of financial accounting. Instructors probably will bring in material from their own reading or experience to make the introductory points. Cases The cases are intended to get the student to start thinking like accountants and users of accounting information, without knowledge of any of the techniques. Maria Hernandez and Associates gives students an opportunity to construct a simple set of financial statements. Kim Fuller can be used as a springboard for any type of discussion: uses of information by various parties, the cost of record-keeping, or even the development of a complete accounting system.

...MARKETS AND PRICES CHAPTER 1 PRELIMINARIES TEACHING NOTES The first two chapters reacquaint students with the microeconomics that they learned in their introductory course: Chapter 1 focuses on the general subject of economics, while Chapter 2 develops supply and demand analysis. The use of examples in Chapter 1 facilitates students’ complete understanding of abstract economic concepts. Examples in this chapter discuss markets for prescription drugs (Section 1.2), introduction of a new automobile (Section 1.4), design of automobile emission standards (Section 1.4), the minimum wage (Section 1.3), the market for sweeteners (Section 1.3), and real and nominal prices of eggs and education (Section 1.3). Discussing some of these, or another, example is a useful way to review some important economic concepts such as scarcity, making tradeoffs, building economic models to explain how consumers and firms make decisions, and the distinction between competitive and non-competitive markets. Parts I and II of the text assume competitive markets, market power is discussed in Part III, and some consequences of market power are discussed in Part IV of the text. Review Question (2) illustrates the difference between positive and normative economics and provides for a productive class discussion. Other examples for discussion are available in Kearl, Pope, Whiting, and Wimmer, “A Confusion of Economists,” American Economic Review (May 1979). The chapter concludes with......

...Chapter 6 - Inequality Based on Sexual Orientation Essay Question - How do the various theoretical perspectives explain inequality based on sexual orientation? Summarize each perspective and then explain which one you find most compelling and why. Gay, Lesbian, Transsexual, Queer, homosexual, heterosexual, bisexual they are all just different words for defining individuals. Sexual behaviour whether heterosexual or homosexual is a learnt therefore the focus is on the development of the identity of which they identify themselves as gay, lesbian, bisexual or straight is the Interactionist perspective. It is assumed that most individuals define themselves as heterosexual because it is the established norm; therefore do not have to struggle over their identity. This thought of having a choice over identity should be disregarded. The individual is caught trying to define whom they are when subconsciously they already know. This theory is based on the journey that individuals take to define themselves. (Kendall, Nygaard, & Thompson, 2004) The feminist perspective theory that has changed drastically over the last 4 decades. in the late 1960s and through the 1970s sexual orientation was debated by radical feminist and the oppression of women in society. Today feminist argue that “Feminism asserts the right of all women to make their erotic choices, and this includes choosing men exclusively. Feminism also rejects the hierarchy of sexual practices, and do does not seek to......

...Chapter 1 THE RESEARCH PROBLEM Introduction This Action Research was undertaken to describe the impact of teacher-made advance exercises as intervention on disruptive behavior of pupils when learning division skills in elementary arithmetic operation. The subjects of this study were Grade Two – A pupils who were constantly disrupting the class during Mathematics period taken from the list made by the teacher through visual observation. For the last two grading periods handling a cream class, a lot of repeated disruptive behaviors such as incessant talking or getting out of their seats to name a few, which were very taxing to the teacher, were observed. These disruptive behaviors were mostly due to boredom especially to those pupils who got to finish their seatwork fast. This called for a classroom management skill. Hollowell (2013) mentioned in her article that classroom management skills are essential for all teachers. Supervising a group of children with different personalities and backgrounds is a challenging task. You are responsible for their academic growth while ensuring that the learning environment stays welcoming and secure. This includes dealing with disruptive pupils. According to Tyson (2013), disruptive students are always present in every classroom. Regardless of scenario or perhaps how great you happen to be as being a teacher, in one way or another they will and can be found. All of which will develop problems provided an open possibility.......

Intro to Sociology #1

...Richard Nicholson SOC 100 Mon. & Wed. 8:45-10:00 Introduction to Sociology Exam #1 Section #1 Public Issue: A public issue occurs when the system itself causes a problem or hardship that someone may face. Individuals tend to view public issues as personal problems which causes them to believe the reason they are not able to do something as an individual failure instead of a structural problem. An example of a public issue that I have experienced is that I had to take a year off from attending school. I took a year off from school so I could have money to support myself. At first, I believed this was entirely a personal issue because I could not afford it. However, looking at it from a sociological viewpoint, I can now see it as a public issue because the tuition rates and cost of living continues to go up yearly. Inequality: Inequality is a built in feature within our social system. This inequality dictates the access and distribution of the commons, or the resources all people need. Inequality is mainly based on the location in which someone was born and/or what family they were born into to. An example of inequality occurred when I attempted to take a loan out on a car. While I was, able to afford the payments on a loan, I did not have credit for a long enough period of time or the down payment the bank was looking for that a person in a higher social class would have through familial ties.
