Imagine that you are going to do sociological research. Describe the topic. Describe the methodological approach you would use. Explain why you selected your preferred approach.
Weegy: The foreseen method is based on questionnaires, complemented by interviews with young people, selected from their answers to the questionnaires. [ This technique is already used within the implicated research teams, with an experience of more than ten years in the field of media education and surveys about youth and media. The questions are in general indirect, avoiding revealing the young person’s intimacy or making him feel too deeply involved, but giving information about “what a young people like him do”. Cross-questions make it possible to test the reliability of the answers. The purposes of the interviews are to check the answers given to the questions and to identify the types of reasoning held by the young people. ] (More)

The American Sociological Association has established a code of ethics for sociologists to adhere to. Discuss which of the five principles you feel is the most important and state why. From your perspective, describe what seems to be missing from the list that you feel is important for a sociologist.
Weegy: It has become increasingly difficult, because of time and other constraints, to respond to the copious amounts of writings praising or representing so-called public sociology. [ It has also become increasingly difficult not to write a satire about these developments. But I will make another effort in light of the previous newsletter’s From the Chair message by our current section Chair Jeff Goodwin (2004). Goodwin encourages comparative and historical sociologists to contribute to public sociology, and furthermore informs us that many of them have already done so. It will not be necessary here to repeat in detail my criticisms of the project of public sociology, which I have clarified —and will continue to clarify while time and energy permit— in various publications (Deflem 2005a,b, 2004a,b,d) and online activities. 1 Suffice it to reiterate that I not only object to the mission of public sociology as it is commonly understood these days, and not only do I question the basis of public sociology and its stated objectives. 2 I reject the very demarcation of public sociology from other made-up types of sociology as well as the pluralization of assorted public sociologies. Amongst other reasons, these labels are to be rejected because they presume that there can be or is a sociology that is not public, and are introduced for strategic reasons to seek to legitimize activities that are ideological in nature and never can be, and should not be accepted to be, on equal footing to contributions in sociological scholarship. To be sure, sociologists ought to conduct their work always as public intellectuals, and we can and, I believe, should inform societal interventions —as I do so myself, at least to the best of my abilities. Yet public sociologists do not advocate sociological activism, but instead promote an activist sociology, which is informed by a particularistic political agenda, denying the pluralist nature of morality ...

Explain how marginality and crisis may be relevant to ones life
Weegy: Social marginality or being an "outsider" enhances sociological thinking. [ [ Aboriginals, women, gay people, those with disabilities and the aged are used to illustrate how certain socially significant characteristics can place people on the "outside" of social life, and make them more aware of social patterns others take for granted. Sociology and Social Crisis Secondly, social crisis can enhance sociological thinking. C. Wright Mills has suggested that historical periods characterized by massive change have resulted in increased sociological awareness. The massive unemployment of the depression years, for example, could be seen as a product of social forces and not individual ineptitude. Conversely, sociological thinking itself can foment social change rather than simply result from it. Four general benefits of using the sociological perspective are reviewed. These include: It challenges familiar understandings about ourselves and others, so that we can critically assess the truth of commonly held assumptions. It allows us to recognize both opportunities we have and the constraints that circumscribe our lives. It empowers us as active members of our world through the grasp of our "sociological imagination", the capacity to comprehend the interplay between personal life and societal forces. It helps us to recognize human diversity and to begin to understand the challenges of living in a diverse world. ] ] (More)
