How to begin: Read the three case studies. Each case study is about a particular country and also relates to some of the concepts that are covered in SOC 300. Each case is based on real-world events in an actual country, with some simplification, but does not identify the country by name.
Task: Select one of the case studies. Write an essay of 500-800 words, in your own words, that accomplishes the following:
o Explain how concepts that have been covered in this course relate to this case. Try to identify as many as you can.
o Compare and contrast the case study with the experiences of countries that have faced the same or similar issues, as described in the text and lectures. In what ways is the case similar? In what ways it is different?
Format: This is not a research paper. Write it as if it were an essay on an exam. The essay must be in your own words. Base your answer on information from the lectures and texts. However, if you feel that you absolutely must quote something external to the texts and lectures, then you must use in-text citations in APA format, and provide a separate reference page. The reference page will not count towards the expected word count. Please note that 500-800 words is about 1.5 – 2.5 pages of double-spaced text.
Grading: The rubric that will be used to grade your essay is found at the end of this document.
