groups influence on the behavior of individual
Earlier in this course, we learned about groups. You discovered how groups could influence the behavior of individual or even other groups. As an example, consider how union and non-union members interact with each other during a labor dispute or a strike.
This week, we will consider stratification systems – specifically, gender, race, and ethnic groups. For this part of your project, you will write about the influence of groups. Please be sure to follow the guidelines for written assignments.
Using the responses from your Week 3 interviews, write a 250-word narrative that address the following criteria:
1. Refer back to the responses from your interview, specifically questions #8 and #9: Name two different ways that you were brought up that you think are different from most other people.
o Were you part of a social, religious, or other type of group growing up? Who were your role models when you were growing up? How did they influence you?
2. Answer the following questions:
o How did your subjects feel about the groups they were members of when they were growing up?
o How do you think these groups and members of the group formed and shaped the subject’s values and norms?
o How do you think the subject’s gender, race, or ethnicity formed and shaped values and norms?
