Writing Assignment Eight
SOCIO201 Spring 2015
Due May 3rd
Select either Harriet Martineau or W. E. B. DuBois. Compare and contrast their
theories with one of the other sociologists we have learned about this semester (during
the period 2/3 through 4/19).
You should discuss one way in which the sociologistsi?? theories are complementary:
describe a concept that is common to both sociologists, and explain the position of each
(using quotes to support your argument).
Using the same sociologists, discuss one way in which their theories differ. Again, you
should describe the concept and each sociologisti??s position, and support your argument
with quotes from the work of both sociologists (or the textbook).
Finally, discuss which of the sociologisti??s arguments you find most compelling (of the
two you wrote about). What about the social world leads you to believe that one
sociologisti??s explanation is superior?
Note, you should use the text and readings to support your argument. While you may
cite the class notes to explain your position, quotes from the notes will not count
towards fulfilling quote requirements. As such, you may need to read some of their
work which was not assigned in class. Below are internet sites containing material
which may be of use:
Harriet Martineau, How To Observe Morals and Manners
As usual, please cite and provide full references to any material in your paper that was
not assigned in class.
