Please choose one of the following prompts and respond to it in no less than 300-400 words. In your response, you must fully answer all aspects of the question and support your answer with reference to course materials (textbook, supplementary readings, videos, etc).

  • The Thomas Theorem states, “If men define their situations as real, they are real in their consequences.” This is the “social constructionist” view on society: we create realities in the social world simply because we believe something is real or necessary, and act accordingly. What does this mean to you? What is a real-life example of this theorem, and how does the theorem apply to that example?


  • In what ways has the development of social media been good for society? In what ways has it been bad for society? Why is a society that uses social media different from one that doesn’t? How does the usage of social media change the way people interact with, relate to, and perceive/judge each other?
