Both of the articles in the second set of readings on organizational processes i

Both of the articles in the second set of readings on organizational processes in social movements (Polletta, Freeman) raise critical questions about what can be done in order to address the concerns raised by skeptics of the formalization of
SMOs (e.g. Matthews). Freeman fears that groups who see themselves as “structureless” are unaccountable, while Polletta suggests that organizations don’t just reflect efficiency but reflect cultural values and ideals alongside strategic concerns. Considering each of these sets of authors, which
perspectives do you find most convincing? Why?
(Answer this using Freemans Article that is attached i.e. Freemans perspective is the most convincing).

1. Choose a topic related to the course (my topic is Economic Inequality).
Next, connect your topic to an artistic outlet of your choice. For instance, how might a photographer’s image or a poem or a song capture the issue of opioid overdose?
Other examples: create an annotated song playlist (which is a musical version of an annotated bibliography), a descriiption of a piece of art, an engineering project, an architectural design
Here is what needs to be in each post – use these headings in your posts:
1. Explain why you chose the specific piece of art.
 how do you see it relating to issues of social inequality
 provide evidence (e.g., music lyrics, melodies, music video scenes, etc.) to support your reasoning.
Reflect on the topic. What does your chosen art and topic mean at a deeper level? What is the message being communicated? Is it effective?

Do you think the family is in crisis in Canada today? Reading: Popenoe, D. (19

Do you think the family is in crisis in Canada today?
Reading:
Popenoe, D. (1993). American family decline, 1960-1990: A review and appraisal. Journal of Marriage and the Family, 527-542.
How to Retrieve this Article: Enter the name of the article (“American family decline, 1960-1990: A review and appraisal”) in the search bar of the MacEwan online library. Follow the ‘Find It’ prompts. If you have any problems accessing this article, please contact a librarian. Librarians can be reached in-person or online through the MacEwan online library ‘chat’ feature.
About the Article/Author:
David Popenoe is an American sociologist of the family. The central thesis of his body of work is that the [nuclear] family is deteriorating and that this represents a significant threat to society- increasing crime, decreasing educational attainments of children, and increasing childhood poverty for example. Popenoe is speaking to the American situation, but most of his broader points could equally be made by someone (with similar theoretical/political leanings) evaluating the Canadian situation as well.
Critical Reading Assignment: Critically respond to the article with a sociological lens. To guide your reading, reflection, and writing, it will be helpful to consider (1) the Structural Functionalist perspective on how the roles families fulfill contribute to the stability of society; (2) the Conflict or Feminist perspective on how the nuclear family exploits families/women; and/or (3) the Symbolic Interactionist perspective on how we ‘do families.’

Please validate/factcheck, adjust&enhance accordingly to see if there are any errors/incorrect info regarding to its content and what it is about since this is generated by Chat GPT AI, and I’m not sure if this is pleasant enough to get full points. So please modify as you will. Bemindful of meeting the minimal word requirements for Each Part.
Below are the instructions for the assignment in text form:
Write an essay, telling me about a movie you saw and liked a lot, and try to convince me to go see it.
Page 1- Provide a descriiption of the film. The descriiption should include the following components:
Introduction- In the opening of your review, provide some basic information about the film. You may include the film’s name, year, director, screenwriter, and major actors. – Your introduction, which may be longer than one paragraph, should also begin to evaluate the film, and it should allude to the central concept of the review.
Plot Summary- While you want to provide some plot summary, keep this brief and avoid specific details that would spoil the viewing for others.
Your response should be at least 150 words in length.
Page 2- On the second page you want to explain what the film means to you.
While the plot summary will give the reader a general sense of what the film is about, also include a more detailed descriiption of your particular cinematic experience watching the film. This may include your personal impression of what the film looks, feels, and sounds like. In other words, what stands out in your mind when you think about this particular film?
For example, “The movie Saving Private Ryan meant a lot to me because my grandfather fought in World War II. After seeing the film I feel that I can understand what he went through”).
Your response should be at least 150 words in length.
Page 3- On the third page include thoughtful reasoning about why your classmate should see the movie.
For example, “Even though you do not know my grandfather, seeing this film will allow you to witness the horror of war”). Sometimes, personal reasons are more meaningful than purely aesthetic ones. You have no idea what my taste is in cinema, but it does not matter, because it is not about what I like; rather it is about why I should like it.
Your response should be at least 450 words in length.
Submission Instructions
Your response should be ​​750-1000 words in length.
After you submit your paper. Respond to the two group members who most persuaded you to watch their selected movie. Your response to your classmate’s post must be at least 150 words in length. The discussion post and response are due Sunday, 1/29 by 11:59 p.m.

The goal of this assignment is to explain how specific sociological elements are

The goal of this assignment is to explain how specific sociological elements are present in an in-depth manner as it pertains to deviance. This is not a film summary nor a film review.
For the film you have chosen, students will analyze the content for sociological perspectives as it pertains to deviance in an in-depth manner. This paper should follow standard 5 paragraph essay format. Your introduction must briefly summarize the film and include a detailed thesis. The thesis statement must clearly identify how that particular film shows evidence of the specific concepts found in the film. An example would be:
“The 1988 film “Stand and Deliver” represents a clear analysis of achieved status, as well as ethnic and economic stigma through the conflict perspective”
For the body paragraphs, you should select 3-4 terms from the chapter on deviance that you will be able to identify from the film as examples in your analysis. You should include a definition of the term prior to giving examples of that term. Also, make a reference to how your examples (from the film) are reflections of that term. Each paragraph should be dedicated to evaluating a specific term.
A conclusion paragraph should wrap up your ideas and reinforce your thesis. Points to remember: Incorporate at least 3 concepts pertaining to deviance. Clearly identify and explain at least one major theoretical perspective when analyzing the film. Show clear comprehension of one or more of the key concepts.
Respond to their ideas regarding their film, especially if you have seen the film.

1) Observation Create a field log (sample field log is provided below). For one

1) Observation
Create a field log (sample field log is provided below). For one day, observe and record the key interactions and institutions in your lived experience. Starting with waking up, who is the first person you talk to? What do you do next- take family members to school, go to the gym, go to work and interact with coworkers? Throughout the day you will take on different roles by interacting with different people and in different situations and be in contact with different social institutions (education, government, health, etc.). Type or photograph your field log and submit it with your written Assignment. It can be added to the analysis essay or submitted separately.  
2) Application
Try to wait one or more days before starting this step. Revisit your field log and apply sociological analysis to your observations.
Describe how our day is shaped and constrained by social norms.
Analyze how at least four sociological concepts learned in class (eg. roles, institutions, interactions, impression management, stage theory, emotional labor) apply to your field log observations. This part of the paper should not be focused on the general social norms you described earlier, dig in with specific concepts in this from our text (refrain from using dictionaries).
For at least two of the concepts, find and incorporate an appropriate source that highlights how sociologists study this concept in everyday society (for example, emotional labor in the restaurant industry). For example, we discussed gender socialization:
In an article by Crespi (2011) that studied gender socialization and gender roles within the family, results showed that a cross-gender relationship between fathers and daughters, mothers and sons has emerged as significant in determining traditional and non-traditional gender attitudes. The research suggested that the relationship with the parent of the opposite sex could be a strong factor in reducing stereotyped attitudes regarding gender roles (Crespi, 2011). *Use a different example in your paper, the purpose here is to show your research skills rather than repeat my research skills.*
3) Reflection
Reflect on your role as a larger part of society (i.e. your motives, instincts, feelings, and/or structural constraints). Discuss ways other people affected you and the ways you affected others in the social experiences of your day.
Sample Field Log
Below is a brief field log to give you an idea of the social interactions and institutions you might look for in your day. With the observations are sample course concepts that relate to the observations. Be creative in exploring and applying concepts- we will all apply concepts differently even if the scenes we observe are very similar.
5:45am: Wake up, interact with children.
Gender roles, nuclear family, folkways
6:30am: Interact with spouse and children. Eat breakfast, run, shower.
8:00am: Arrive at airport, check in interaction with airline customer service; interaction with TSA.
Social structure, bureaucracy, norms, mores, social control
9:00am: Wait with other passengers to board flight; purchase a drink at coffee shop; employees have a tip jar; a family sitting close by is watching the news and commenting on what they think is wrong with other cultures.
Emotional labor, ethnocentrism, Piaget’s stages of development
9:30am: On flight with family having a difficult time with small children; flight attendant offers to help them.
Emotional labor, gender roles, family
12pm: Arrive at destination airport; drive two hours to see extended family. Along the road there are farmers with fruit stands. See homeless person asking for assistance in exchange for work.
Poverty, inequality
4pm: Extended family arrives for potluck dinner; look at family photos together and share family memories. Watch evening news- local robbery and assault.
Social deviance, material culture
6pm: Stop at church to meet family friend, see a bible study group inside; lots of religious symbols; someone remarks on a new church being built to accommodate a different racial group.
General requirements:
Submissions should be typed, double-spaced, 1″ margins, times new roman 12 pt font, and saved as .doc, .docx, .pdf.
Use APA format for citations and references
