SOC 101 Week 2 Assignment Theorist of Choice

Theorist of Choice

The text, Introduction to Sociology, describes many individuals who have contributed to our current view of sociology, including: 

  • C. Wright Mills

  • Howard Becker

  • W. I. Thomas

  • Auguste Comte

  • Emile Durkheim

  • Herbert Spencer

  • Karl Marx

  • Erving Goffman

  • Harriet Martineau

  • W. E. B. Du Bois

Using the knowledge you have gained thus far in this course, write a paper, which identifies one influential theorist that best aligns with your personal view of sociology. Describe the theory and provide evidence supporting your thesis (three reasons for choosing your theorist). 

The paper must be three to four pages in length (excluding the cover and reference pages) and formatted according to APA style. You must use at least two scholarly resources (at least one of which can be found in the Ashford Online Library) other than the textbook to support your claims and subclaims. Cite your resources in text and on the reference page. For information regarding APA samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center, within the Learning Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar, in your online course.
