scenario for the assignment
For this assignment, I want you to imagine that you are a sociologist who studies
educational inequalities in the U.S. After listening to the podcast, you decide that you
are going to write a series of essays summarizing the important sociological research
illustrated in the story told and analysis provided. I want you to imagine this essay is
the first in a series of essays you’ll write summarizing different elements of the podcast
sociologically. Your task is to review the podcast, explain how it relates to sociological
research on privilege we will be reading and learning about in this course, and draw on
course readings and lecture material to zoom in on the piece of the podcast you elect
to write about in greater depth to explain that piece sociologically.
