8 paragraphs, numbered. Each paragraph around 210 words.
**In each paragraph, focus on summarizing, explaining what you learned, and using specific examples from the sources to demonstrate that you have read the book and viewed the video.
View “Sicko” by Michael Moore. Consider the basic sociological theories described in the weekly notes when viewing the movie. Consider the question “why do so many Americans oppose universal health care?” and how this relates to the theories. After viewing “Sicko” :
1) List the countries that Michael Moore visited and summarize what the people said about their health care systems. Pros and cons?
2) Provide a quote from one person from each country.
3) Provide a criticism of the movie: methodology, bias? What is Michael Moore’s premise in the movie?
4) How does a country’s economic system, as supported by those in power, shape the citizens’ outlook as to who’s responsible for the care of the people? What are the potential economic consequences in countries that have universal health care (could be positive and negative?)
From Week 1 notes:
5) Provide an actual example, something real that you have observed, for either “seeing strange in the familiar” or “seeing general in the particular.”<br />
6) Provide one concrete example of how sports illustrates one of the major theoretical perspectives (Conflict, Functional, Symbolic Interaction.) <br />
7) After reading the assigned article on Defining Social Problems…..Do all members of a society agree on what is determined to be a “social problem” that requires attention and intervention? Why might there be disagreements?
8) From the article, in two paragraphs, summarize the info from the section “Paradigm Assumptions and Defining Social Problems” (fourth major subject heading,) and secondly, summarize the conclusions of the research at the end of article on poverty and welfare programs.
