Sociology 3 – Introduction to SociologyProfessor KimmelSpring 2021Mid-semester assignmentWhen sociologists speak about the “social construction of reality,” what do they mean? And why is it an important concept to take into account when attempting to understand and explain human social behavior? Specifically, explain and discuss W.I. Thomas’ statement: If men define a situation as real, it is real in its consequences. What is he saying and what is its significance in the study of social behavior?Assume that your reader does not know anything about the topic and it is your job to educate him or her. Use at least two or three examples to explain and illustrate your thinking and facilitate your teaching (in your own words). All essays must be typed and written in grammatically correct English in 12 font size and Times New Roman font. Write a 3 – 4 page essay that deals with the issues raised above. If you’re using outside (online) sources for some of your examples then cite your source using MLA format, along with a bibliography on the last page.
