Berkeley City College Invisible Voice of Men in Society Video Analysis Project In today’s current climate, a myriad of social issues exist within almost all of the social institutions. Whether issues arise due to challenges within the traditional family, the fear of murder between intimate partners, drug abuse with illicit and prescription pharmaceuticals to even overpopulation and access to adequate healthcare.
For this assignment, choose a relatively current video event and analyzes the clip by using sociological theories, terms or textbook concepts. The video clip must be at least 10 minutes and less than 1 hour. Briefly, summarize the clip in one paragraph then analyze the clip by describing the affected group and use at least one major sociological perspective (functionalism, conflict, symbolic interactionism, feminism, etc.)
The included sections of this assignment are the title, your name, one-paragraph short summary, two pages of analysis using a sociological perspective, and an active video link for the video.
Remember, each perspective is equally important and valuable. Remember to clearly show the affected groups objective data with subjective concerns. A problem for one group may not be a problem for another group.
The smallest portion of this assignment is summary since I primarily want to read how you analyze the material. The remaining portion of the paper should be analysis. The total paper length is 2-3 pages, double-spaced, Times New Roman or Arial size 12-font. June 12 is the due date; include an active video link.
You can earn up to 5 points for the video summary and 20 points for analyzes. The total amount is 25 points.
Here are a few examples of video clips. Remember, you can choose almost any video clip with the condition the clip discusses a social issue.
