First, summarize what you’ve learned regarding the impact of social phenomena (for instance, social inequality, social deviance, etc.) on the social problem you selected from macro and micro perspectives.
Next, in Topic 1, you explained how the theoretical perspective(s) that best aligns with your selected social problem (conflict, functionalist, and interactionist) explains how it came to be and is perpetuated. In this essay, explain how your study of the theoretical perspectives has deepened your understanding of why the social problem you’ve selected continues to exist and how it can be alleviated.
Lastly, provide your own possible solutions to your selected social problem that are more effective than current solutions, based on the research you’ve collected.
Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.
