is not solciciting a short answer response. Your discussion will be analyzed and evaluated in terms of how you concisely articulate and support your statements, how you incorporate sociological ideas and concepts from the texts into your argument and descriptions. In other words apply the ideas and concepts in bold from the Trevino text to add sociological description to your discussion and demonstrate you understand the material and can apply the concepts. Use the questions as an outline for your posting—answer each and move to the next bulleted question. Submissions should be as long as they have to but there is no need to go overboard…in general keeping them between 100-400 words. If you have to go over that will not be a problem as long as it is substantial and not just ramblings. If the minimal effort is dedicated to the assignment then expect a minimal or failing grade. Don’t worry so much on quantity focus more on content.

After reading the novel Ishmael it is expected that the student has developed and can envision an understanding of human activities beyond the already established ‘grand-narratives’ taught to us in schools. Through the sociological imagination, students should be able to critically analyze human activities in terms of the cultural logic that motivates them and the way in which they are related to the emergence of contemporary social problems. INSTRUCTIONS: 1. In your discussion provide a brief explanation of what ‘taker” and “leaver” cultures are, what makes them different from one another, and how do they relate to contemporary cultural forms of human organization and the source of social problems? 2. Why is it important that both types of society continue to exist? 3. Quinn discusses the concept of “cultural myths” or ideologies that human cultures have developed to validate belief systems and activities. Briefly describe one contemporary ‘myth’ utilized by humans today to justify their actions despite the consequences/social problems created and affecting others—typically the less powerful. Use one of the standard theoretical frames (e.g. symbolic interaction, Conflict theory, Functionalism) to contextualize and describe and discuss the selected myth. Who benefits from the myth? Who does not benefit? 4. In addition students must also briefly discuss the meaning of one of the following parables from the Ismael book: The Jellyfish Story The Story of the Law of Aerodynamics The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil In your explanation include a brief description of how it represents a logical fallacy in terms of human culture and development. If there are any questions concerning this discussion assignment forward them to the course instructors/me.
