1. Read the ‘Educated” summary/overview linked below, it will help if you understand what the entire book is about
2. Draft a 4-6 page essay that summarizes the memoir and then examines Tara’s story from a sociological perspective.
This essay is organized into 2 parts: Summary (no longer than 2 pages double spaced) and Sociological Examination (at least 2 pages double spaced)
After you succinctly summarize the memoir in two pages or less, examine Tara’s story from a sociological perspective. To examine Tara’s story from a sociological perspective, focus your analysis on the following questions:
How does Tara’s story demonstrate an interplay between individual agency and societal constraint?
What cultural socialization did Tara experience?
How did Tara’s experiences come to form her sense of self? A sociological examination means that you are defining and applying sociological theories and concepts from the module lectures to examples from the memoir.
Powerpoint citation example: Agency is “the ability to make choices and exercise a measure of control over one’sactions” (Module 1 “Symbolic Interaction” PowerPoint).
“Educated” citation example: DESCRIBE EXAMPLE (Westover 2018, p. 42-43).
