What is this group’s relationship with class and/or poverty?

Thus far in this class, we’ve been focused on sociologically defining marginalized groups within the United States, as well as attempting to understand a bit of each group’s history. One of the most important ways that a person can demonstrate cultural competence is to be educated. That’s saying that it’s vital to try to understand how a person’s history affects their identity, which in turn affects their or opportunities and sense of personal agency.
Now it’s time for you to apply what you’ve learned so far. There are groups of minorities that we have not had the opportunity to discuss. Please choose a group that we’ve not discussed yet. In essay form, address the following issues:
A brief overview of this group’s American history.
A brief overview of this group’s treatment in the United States.
Why would you define this group as a “minority”?
What is this group’s relationship with class and/or poverty?
Could this group’s relationship with class/poverty relate to intersectionality? Why or why not?

Please use standard APA format for headings and citations to address the following writing prompt. Your response should be a minimum of two pages, but no more than four pages (unless you have instructor approval).
Please use academic journals, course text, and/or scholarly articles to support your claim.
Objectives:
To develop sensitivity to issues of oppression and discrimination as they relate to class, poverty, and intersectionality.

Do you agree with this idea more than marx’s definition of class?

Lesson 7 Discussion
After you complete this unit’s readings and videos, think about the second video’s presentation of the class definition. Max Weber’s idea of class is more about the opportunities available to a person, not so much the work that they do. Do you agree with this idea more than Marx’s definition of class? Also, why do you think that it is so difficult to agree on definitions of class in the United States?

Afterward, It Should explain how there have been disputes between communities these decades. Then it should start giving reasons/policies of the government that have a direct connection to this dispute’s trends. communities including Hindus-Muslims-Christianity; backward class castes-general castes Brahmins-Shudras.

Teacher’s name is michelle burwell, it must be included in the cover sheet.

The paper should include a Cover sheet (name, topic) Introduction (should be 2 to 3 paragraphs), and a Reference page (3 to 4 credible sources ex. NY Times, scholarly articles, books, etc) My name is Jayson Dominguez. Teacher’s Name is Michelle Burwell, it must be included in the cover sheet.

What steps need to be taken in order to fix, improve, or further push the campaign?

Introduction: 1-2 paragraphs
• Concisely present what the reader is going to find in your paper: briefly describe the campaign you are discussing and its relevance. Inform what framework (i.e., “toolkit”, the socio-spatial approach) you are relying on to develop your analysis. Tip: you can consider arguments shared in your proposal regarding what motivated you on your campaign choice to craft this opening paragraph.
• Provide a “snapshot” of the entire paper or a roadmap to what the reader is going to find in the following pages. Pay attention: this is a transitional paragraph, and you must use good judgment to decide what should be included – there is no formula, as the information presented at this point depends on the arguments you are laying out in the following paragraphs.
Arguments: at least 5 (substantive) paragraphs
• Explain to the reader in detail what the socio-spatial approach is. You should argue for the importance of political economy to urban life and the need to pay attention to the interplay of cultural, political, economic, and social factors for an accurate understanding of urban dynamics. Tip: you can consider the information shared in chapters one and three of the textbook as well as the lessons related to these chapters; shedding light on the role of the real estate industry and government policies is vital so that you can ground what will come ahead.
• Describe the urban development of New York City over the past decades through the framework you presented in the previous paragraph. Consider issues such as, for example, real estate and state subsidies, government programs, racism, economic de-concentration, and globalization – all related to the making of the multicentered metropolitan region. Your description should move the reader towards what is central to the campaign you chose – of course, each campaign has a particular target, but remember that the issues related to New York’s housing crisis are homelessness, (un)affordable housing, and gentrification. Tip: you can rely on chapters five, eight, nine, and ten of the textbook to write this section of the paper, but your own research is needed too.
• Present the campaign you chose to discuss in great detail: what its goals are, when it was launched, and who is supporting and/or sponsoring it. Consider what areas of the city would
be affected and who would benefit from the campaign in case it is successful. Tip: you are
encouraged to rely on numbers and statistics, but it is not mandatory.
• Explain to the reader how the chosen campaign addresses the issue at stake – in other words,
discuss the ways the campaign approaches and deals with the housing crisis. Is it a temporary or long-term solution? Discuss whether the campaign may affect the landscape (i.e., the way urban space is organized) and the balance of power in the city (i.e., whether someone or some groups will have more or less leverage).
• Inform the reader of the challenges the campaign has faced. Here, you should consider the actions of the groups involved in the campaign and the responses by planners, lawmakers, real estate owners and developers, and, eventually, the media and the population. You should now provide your own assessment of the campaign grounded in your learning throughout the semester: do you agree with the campaign? Is its scope too narrow or too ambitious? What steps need to be taken in order to fix, improve, or further push the campaign? Why has the campaign stalled or not moved forward? Is the campaign a social justice matter? Tip: you can find inspiration for this section of the paper by checking chapters eleven to thirteen of the textbook, but your own educated views are crucial –
so trust your creativity.
Conclusion: 1-2 paragraphs
• Take your arguments to a higher level: what deeper insights can be formulated and connected to the analysis you just did if any? Pay attention: this question is optional, and you do not need to answer it in your paper; however, be aware that doing so will considerably strengthen your analysis and grant you more credit.
• Wrap up: summarize everything you did in your paper briefly, summarize your conclusions, and write a strong final sentence that communicates an important message to your reader.
Your paper should have 5 to 10 pages in length, double space. Do not forget to review and proofread it – preferably, you will ask someone else to do a final check for you. You must comply with citation style rules and follow academic integrity (i.e., absolutely no form of plagiarism or cheating). Compliance with citation style rules and writing will be grading criteria as well. If you have questions about citation style rules, consult the booklet shared on Blackboard (click on “Course Information” and look for the document titled ASA Citation Style Rules).

Discuss how inequalities and inequities persist in education.

discuss how inequalities and inequities persist in education. You can focus on race, class, gender, or any other social factor. You can also focus on just one social factor or combine any of them and discuss how they relate to one another. In the second part of the paper, discuss solutions to those issues. How can we create more equality and equity in education and for underserved groups?
The paper should include 2 course sources and at least 4 outside academic sources (e.g., peer-reviewed journal articles). It should also be at least 8 full pages (not including references), double-spaced, 1-inch margins, Times New Roman or similar font, and 12-point font. In-text citations and references should be in ASA format.

Give concrete examples of its application

Instructions include write a term paper 5 pages on the following topics. The paper should be typed, double spaced and include at least 2 footnotes.
1. What is structural functionalism? Who originated it? Give concrete examples of its application
2. Why do structural functionalists concentrate on the consequences of social action rather than its causation?
3. What are two major criticisms of structural functionalism by other theorists?
4. How would a structural functionalists explain the problem of inequality? Be specific.
Each of the above questions will count as 25 points. Please write clearly and precisely.

Paper proposal submitted:
In this paper, I will analyze how an individual’s identity is enacted on Instagram vs. BeReal (two social media applications). I will discuss the primary features of each application and it’s effect on millennials’ sense of self. I will compare the user experience on the two applications to the way identity has been explored by Erving Goffman in his text “The Presentation of Self in Everyday Life”.
In the information/digital age, the widespread use of the internet has made millennials increasingly dependent on computers, mobile phones, and tablets. This dependence on technology has also increased their usage of social media applications to stay connected with their loved ones. Photos and videos are uploaded constantly to update others on their lives and a well-curated image of one’s self is put out into the world. This “front-stage” image is skewed from the actual reality, which has resulted in negative impacts to their mental health. The comparison and the showcase of your life’s highlights that social media applications promote makes millennials crave constant validation as they try to fit in and not be “stigmatized” by their peers.
To contextualize my analysis I will be using the theories of Goffman who argues that every individual has a “virtual and actual identity”. I will also use Goffman’s idea of how our possessions help in the formation of our identity to explore how Instagram and BeReal promote and/or demote materialism and capitalism. Additionally, I will apply Goffman’s theories of “stigma” to explore how stigmatization on social media affects millennials and their mental health.
In the process of my analysis, I will engage with the dissenting views of the benefits of social media applications in bridging gaps, helping people stay connected, creating communities and enabling people to be their true self.
My paper’s main argument will be that social media applications largely influence the identity of millennials. Through my analysis I will show how Instagram and BeReal promote a false sense of authenticity, which as a result, negatively impacts their mental health and well-being.
This topic matters to human-centered interaction design because designers need to consider the negative implications of their design. Designers have the power to influence and impact human behavior and should be using this power in a positive way, with care and consideration.
