Summary of issues and proposed changes | SOC 400 – Sociology of Class, Gender, Ethnicity, and Race | Strayer University

Jul 20, 2023

Overview

As described in the assignments due in Weeks 2, 5, and 8, you wrote two articles (Parts 1 and 2) as if you were an investigative reporter who has been assigned to research important issues (ethnic, racial, gender, or class) that are affecting people in a local area, workplace, or specific part of the world. The articles are for a major publication (magazine or newspaper). Your goal was to provide both an in-depth analysis of and put a human face on an issue. After publication, your editor has asked that you provide a summary of your articles using Google Slides or PowerPoint for a meeting of the National Association of Journalists, so the members can determine if the series should win one of its top three prizes for investigative reporting.
