topic will be violence on self but more importantly suicide and self harm rates in the United States. more importantly how inflation relates to the suicide rates.

what I’ve accomplished so far on my research paper is there is an actual table for how they track suicide rates in the united states due to inflation, and unemployment. Increased occurrence of these fatal events, or “direct human fallout” is tightly correlated with the disruption caused by economic, financial, and social hardship linked to the global financial crisis (GFC). GFC and the associated adverse economic sentiment, triggered by the collapse of the housing market in 2008, would increase suicide, homicide, and murder-suicide rates in the united states. one main source that I was using for my information is  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5667934/ (Links to an external site.)   which has been very helpful in writing my research paper.

Deviance Article Analysis

This assignment asks you to write a sociological analysis of a report about deviance. The objective of the research is to determine the extent to which norms influence behavior and how norm violation is perceived in our society. Thus, you will pay particular attention on how the deviance was described in your chosen article. This assignment involves core concepts that you find in Chapter 7. Make sure that you have reviewed this chapter before writing your final report. 

STEP 1: Find a current article about a deviant act that has been committed within the past few weeks. These deviant acts could either be positive or negative. Examples of deviant acts- criminal behaviors, heroic behaviors, hoarding, Samaritan acts, etc. You can also look at acts institutions/ organizations have done that would be considered “deviant” acts. Articles should be a minimum of 500 words, recent (within three-six weeks), relevant (related to social conformity, deviance, and social control), and from a reputable news source (the KSUTC library as well as your public libraries provide free access to national news sources). You should not Google “deviance” to find a current events article; rather, check reputable online news sources or an actual article about a deviant behavior. There are always major deviant acts each week that make the national and local news. 

STEP 2: Write a thorough summary of the article. This means that the summary should be at quite detailed. Summary, however, should not be more than one page. STEP 3: Using your sociological imagination, write an analysis of the article that connects the main idea/s of the article to 5 specific key terms and 1 theory we have discussed in Chapter 7 -Deviance, Conformity, and Social Control.” Use the following outline for your analysis:

Format to use:

 I. Write a thorough summary of the article (not more than one page)

 II. Sociological Analysis of the report

 A. What was the norm that was violated? Describe briefly how this norm helps one determine how to act in a social setting. That is, what is the function of the norm for society in general?

 B. Which deviance theory do you think can best explain the public’s reactions to this norm violation? Explain why.

 C. Relate the article’s report about this deviance to at least FIVE sociological concepts we have studied in Chapter 7. (*note: in this analysis, make sure to highlight the key terms) 

D. Write a conclusion for your paper by stating what you learned about how is deviance perceived in society? 

STEP 4: Include the link to your article, check for any writing errors, and submit your article with your response paper. For further guidance, the grading rubric is provided in the next page →

Unit 2 essay questions

Make sure that you demonstrate/write as much as you can what you know about the topic. DO NOT give me a listing answer since these are essay questions. • A two to three sentence paragraph is not going to cut it. Do not assume that I know what you know. • Upload your essay answers as a WORD document. DO NOT forget to put your name on the first page of your essay answers. 


Briefly discuss how Erick Erickson’s Stages of Human Development explains the development of the self. What does this theory tell us about the interplay of nature and nurture in developing our concept of the self? 


One of the problems that the country is facing right now is the shortage of workers. This shortage has hampered the economic recovery of the country from the devastation of the pandemic. Despite the fact that the government had already stopped giving out stimulus checks and business owners increasing wages, workers are just not coming back to work. Identify, define, and discuss briefly TWO of Marx’s levels of alienation that you think could explain workers’ reluctance to go to back to work in the face of abundant job opportunities.

wk1 assignment

Based on the readings and video below,  reflect and respond to the following prompts:

  1. Based on your experience, what % of time is devoted to understanding concepts and what % of time is devoted to practicing skills? For the purpose of this assignment, have these two values add to 100%. In your ideal math classroom, what % of time should be devoted to understanding concepts and what % of time should be devoted to practicing skills? What makes you say that?
  2. What are the key takeaways from the video and reading? What are the benefits and what are the drawbacks of structuring learning around conceptual understanding?
  3. How might this help you design lessons/units differently?
  4.  What potential barriers do you see with incorporating more conceptual understanding in math?
  5. Choose a lesson that you have taught or will teach in the future. What concepts do students need to understand from this lesson? How might you help them develop this understanding? 

FORMAT:  Use video, visual representations, Google Slides, paragraph descriptions (or combination of these) to demonstrate an understanding of and to address the questions above.
