Discuss social stratification as either a positive or at least necessary part of society.

To successfully complete this course, you must write an

essay based on information found in your textbook Sociology:

The Basics, Twelfth Edition, by John J. Macionis and selected

readings from Seeing Ourselves: Classic, Contemporary, and

Cultural Readings in Sociology by John J. Macionis and Nijole

V. Benokraitis. The great thing about this assignment is

there is NO outside research necessary!

Based on the subjects below, you will choose one of the topics

and submit a well-written argument based on one of the

topics that is 750 to 1,000 words in length. Remember: If

you use the exact word of any of the authors, you must use

quotation marks and cite the information properly. Visit to

learn more about proper formatting of citations for both

in-text and a reference page.

Begin by reviewing Chapter 8, �Social Stratification,� beginning

on page 186 in your textbook. In addition, read �Some

Principles of Stratification� by Kingsley Davis and Wilbert E.

Moore beginning on page 201 and �Nickel-and-Dimed: On

(Not) Getting by in America� by Barbara Ehrenreich beginning

on page 209 in your reader.

Sections of Chapter 8 discuss social stratification as either a

positive or at least necessary part of society; the first article

in your reader further discusses this concept. The second

article by Ehrenreich focuses on the loss of high-paying jobs.

Based on all that you�ve read, choose one of the readings,

argue if a family can survive on a minimum wage income and

if America can be America with the loss of higher-paying jobs

or if stratification is necessary and positive in America.

The purpose of your paper is to use factual information from

your research to persuade readers that your position on

the chosen subject is the most suitable, logical way to

view the topic.

Your essay assignment must include

1. A cover sheet

2. The body of your paper (750�1,000 words)

3. A reference page, if needed

As stated earlier, you are to choose one of the assigned topics

and create a thoughtful, well-written essay of 750 to

1,000 words based solely from the sources provided (i.e.,

your textbook and the reader). If you use the exact words of

any of the authors, you are required to use quotation marks

and provide proper citations both in the text and a properly

formatted reference page. If you don�t know how to do this,

please refer to

citapa.htm to learn more about proper formatting of

citations for both in-text and a reference page.

Format your paper using a standard font, such as Times New

Roman, 12 point, double-spaced. Set the margins at a standard

1 inch on all sides. Since you�ve given your information

on the cover sheet, no header is necessary. The standard

style format for citations is American Psychological

Association (APA). If you need help with this, refer to

The books are Society The Basics by John J. Macionis Twelfth Edition and Seeing Ourselves by John Macionis and Nijole V. Benokraitis Eighth
