Assignment 2 meets the following course objectives: Apply a sociological perspective to the social world. Analyze contemporary social issues using the sociological imagination and use sociological theories and concepts to analyze everyday life. Demonstrate the ability to identify, locate, and retrieve information related to the topics in the course. Purpose The primary goal of this exercise is to apply your developing sociological knowledge and skills to the analysis of a current event. Writing Expectations This should be 4-6 pages long (the cover and reference page do not count), double-spaced, 12 pt font (arial or times new roman), with 1″ margins. Instructions: Choosing a Current Event. A current event refers to something that is happening in the world at present and they are usually described on the news and in mass media. You must choose a report (written, from the radio, or televised) of an event that has been reported on within 3 months of the assignment deadline. Remember, the event you choose must have some relevance to the study of society, and you must properly cite the source from which you got your report. Do not include more than 2 articles. Describe the Current Event. Second, you will need to provide a brief summary of the current event. This should include details such as location, timing (i.e is this an ongoing event, does it appear to be a one time event, is this an example of an event that happens frequently), people involved, and any analysis offered by the report(er). Analyzing the Current Event. The final step in the process is conducting an analysis of the current event using knowledge you have gained from the course to-date. The most important thing here is that the analysis should not just be your opinion about the current event, but grounded in sociological theory and prior research. You will need to use at least 4 sociological concepts covered in this course to analyze the current event (i.e. social construction, stratification, social control, crime, deviance). (hint: sociological concepts should be clearly identified, defined and then applied; any paraphrasing or direct quotes used from another source should include APA formatted in-text citations and a full citation at the end of the essay). instuctors comment: while I appreciate the submission, it appears you did not follow the instructions. You were to select an article on a current event. It appears what you include here are journal articles. You can obtain the article from a news paper, magazine, etc. Current events include the fires in California, the church shooting, etc. Please take another look at the instructions in addition to the tips I posted. Below are a few reminders about the essay based on questions received over the past two days: Should be 4-6 pages long (this does not include the cover or reference page) Please do not submit an essay more than 6 pages; I do not read beyond the requirements. Do not include more than 2 articles on the subject/current event It should be in APA format; double-spaced, 12 pt font (arial or times new roman), with 1″ margins, cover page, running header, subheadings to identify each section and a reference list. Subheadings should be something like this: Description of Current Event and Analysis of the Current Event You want to start with a brief introduction and end with a brief summary or closing. You want to be sure to include and cite what you learned from the textbook. In terms of other sources, they should be academic sources no more than five years old.

Great Job! Thank you so much for your work. You got it done faster than I imagined and everything is perfect. Will definitely be using you again!

"As a wife, mother, and full-time student, I was struggling to try to go back to school and take care of my responsibilities. Sometimes you just need a little help, and I appreciate all the help I have gotten from Academic Research Bureau. My papers are on-time and the writers are easy to work with. Thanks for the support!"
Rajab M.Rajab M.
Universitywritingservices.com has saved me a lot of time. I was tired of taking the same classes many times over again. As an ESL student, my professors were taking points off of my assignments for my grammar mistakes. It made it very hard to feel encouraged to continue with my studies. Thankful for having found an answer for better grades."
Frank N.Frank N.
As a working student, I just really don't have the time to write paper after paper and complete assignment after assignment. Working full-time and going to school was nearly impossible until I was able to feel comfortable with the writers on this site. They make me feel secure enough to trust them with my papers. While I'm busy with life, they are busy writing my papers. They always do an outstanding job!

Thank you! You were really patient with me and my needs. This was my first time using you guys, however, I will definitely be using you again!

I cannot tell you enough how amazing your company is! Your writers are superb, on time, excellent content, so very thankful you reached out to me that day! Lifesaver for sure! Couldn’t be happier with the results I’ve gotten from my first 2 papers with you, I have 4 papers left to go and I’ll be using your company for them all!
Rebecca T.Rebecca T.
After I ordered a dissertation from your writing service, the first paper that I was given did not met my professor’s demand. I set the paper on revision and the writer made the revision for free meeting all my requirements and I was very satisfied
Thomas R.Thomas R.
I was shocked by how your writers managed to deliver my paper on time, and I was among the best in our class in that paper. Thank you so much and I will never hesitate to use you
