STEP 1: Respond to the following prompt in a post between 200 and 400 words:
Please introduce yourself. The sociological imagination allows us to see the connections between history and biography. In order to understand how we can apply this concept to sociological topics like race/ ethnicity, gender/ sexuality, family, religion, education (and many more), let’s first begin by applying it to your own lives. Think about the historical period in which you were born, the place/environment in which you were born, and your own biographical information, including where you are now as a college student. Remember, only describe aspects of your life that you are comfortable sharing with the entire class, as this information will be presented in an open forum.
STEP 2: Comment on at least two classmates’ posts in a response of 100 words or more. Use this prompt as a conversation tool to connect with your classmates. You will likely see things that are similar to your own responses and things that are different or unique to each student. As always, be respectful and engaged within the online space.
