The last exercise of the year will ask you to examine yourself from your new sociological imagination. For the very first blog of the year, each student answered the question, “Who am I? Write a blog entry that defines who you are. Explain to the class what makes up the person you are. What are the biggest influences in your life? What are your goals/purposes in life?”
Now that we have finished the semester, I want you to re-examine your answer to that question. For the last blog of the year, amend your first answer in light of our sociology experience. How would you change that answer knowing what you know now about sociology? You can use your other blogs as reminders of the topics we learned about in class: culture, socialization, media, gender, teens, deviance, social class and race. How does sociology shape the way you think about yourself or your world? If you’d like, you can copy and paste your old blog entry into a new entry and highlight all the differences now in italics or another color, etc.
