Written communication: written communication is free of errors that detract from the overall message, with a clear introduction, body, and conclusion.

Building on your research and analysis of a diversity issue in relation to policy developments, this assessment asks you to more closely examine the connection between power, policy, and law making by comparing and contrasting how two states of your choosing have handled one of the following policy issues: same-sex marriage or immigration.
To understand the link between power and political and legal decision making, you will place this process in each state in the appropriate context. That means that you need to assess the historical, demographic, cultural, and socioeconomic factors that have influenced each state’s different approach to immigration policy or same-sex marriage. You will also reflect on the consequences of state-to-state discrepancies in policies and laws regarding controversial social and political issues like these.
This assessment combines the key components of studying cultural diversity from a sociological perspective: placing current social issues in historical context, understanding how demographic and cultural trends influence public opinion, and applying sociological theories to determine the role of power in shaping policy-making decisions.
Deliverable
Write an essay addressing each of the following parts:
Compare how your two states have approached policy, politics, or law surrounding immigration or same-sex marriage:
Policy (principles or methods used to achieve a particular goal or make decisions about political or social issues).
Politics (the key political players in the policy-making and law-making processes).
Law (rules and standards enforced by a particular institution).
Discuss how sociological theories of power might explain the differences between how each state has addressed your issue.
Examples of theories of power include power elite theory, the four networks theory of power, pluralism, Marxist theory, and state autonomy theory.
Discuss how the demographics of each state’s population might influence how each state’s government has approached your topic.
Demographics include age, race/ethnicity, gender, education levels, religious beliefs, political beliefs, and the percentage of the population in urban versus rural areas.
Analyze discrepancies between state and federal law and whether and how these discrepancies have been resolved or should be resolved.
Consider any historical precedents that provide insight about how to resolve these kinds of discrepancies.
Additional Requirements
Your assessment should also meet the following requirements:
Written communication: Written communication is free of errors that detract from the overall message, with a clear introduction, body, and conclusion.

Include a brief conclusion slide that summarizes your findings.

Your task in this assessment is to first choose one of the following social issues related to diversity: immigration policy, same-sex marriage, gender inequality, disability rights, or age discrimination. If you have another diversity-related social issue you would like to focus on other than these options, contact your faculty for approval before you begin working on this assessment. Once you have selected a social issue to focus on, you will then create a presentation that would be delivered at a symposium on a college campus. You will need to place your social issue in historical context, which will involve researching the history of policy as it pertains to your chosen topic and the social movements that developed as a result (for example, the gay rights movement or women’s rights movement). You will also be asked to propose and address potential questions audience members might ask in this kind of situation.
Deliverable
Focusing on your social issue, create a PowerPoint presentation that addresses each of the items below. Include graphics with supporting data in the form of charts, tables, or graphs when appropriate, and include any other information that supports your message. Be sure to include extensive speaker’s notes to provide detailed explanation of each of the subtopics covered in the presentation. Notes should be typed in the Notes area below each PowerPoint slide.
Include the following components:
Provide an overview and description of the central issue you have chosen to address.
Describe the evolution of the social movements that are a precursor for or have emerged as a result of your chosen issue.
Include a timeline with key events to provide historical context.
Describe any milestones that have characterized the development of the social movement involving your issue.
Briefly analyze the following for your selected topic:
The evolution of federal legislation on the topic over the past 10 years.
The current political landscape, including key political debates related to your central issue.
Introduce the important political players (individuals or groups) in the national debate, and discuss the tactics these individuals or groups have used to call attention to or advance their position.
Explain how sociological theory (such as conflict theory or symbolic interaction theory) can be used to understand your issue.
Consider which theory might explain why some players have more power than others in this debate.
Include a brief conclusion slide that summarizes your findings.
Provide two questions (following your conclusion) that you anticipate that your audience might ask about your topic, including these questions on one of your slides.
Provide answers for each question, typing your answers in the Notes area below the Questions slide you have created.
Use data and information from your research to support your responses.
For example, if you are discussing immigration policy, a potential question would be “Are immigrants taking the jobs of native-born Americans?” Similarly, a potential question about same-sex marriage might be, “How has public perception of same-sex marriage changed over the last few decades?”

To prepare for this assessment, choose one media program or article that deals with an issue related to one or more forms of diversity, such as race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, disability, or social class.

In this assessment, you will have the opportunity to take a deeper look at the connection between the media and the cultural diversity of U.S. society. You will discuss how a current program or article in current news media approaches diversity-related issues and explain how we can use the sociological perspective to better understand both the portrayal of diversity-related issues and the media’s broader role in U.S. society. Effectively evaluating the accuracy of the information provided in your chosen media piece will require some additional research and fact checking, something that sociologists do as well when they are weighing the validity of opposing arguments.
To prepare for this assessment, choose one media program or article that deals with an issue related to one or more forms of diversity, such as race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, disability, or social class. Examples of acceptable media include a newspaper article, a radio program, a television show, or a movie. Find these via the Capella library or online. Feel free to choose a topic or media source that is either domestic or global in content.

Consider how individuals in power influence decisions regarding how issues are portrayed. This can include corporate executives, lobbyists, special interest groups, or those who own a particular newspaper, channel, or media conglomerate.

I am attaching my signature PowerPoint on African Independence. I would like you

I am attaching my signature PowerPoint on African Independence. I would like you to look at slides 30 and 31. Those two slides come from one of the early Africanists (Hyden, 2006), who published a work in which he reflects on the scholarship on Africa since the early days of independence in the 1950s. These ten observations Hyden is offering are how African politics and economics interact as we continue in the 21st century.
Your assignment is to choose five (5) of the ten (10) “what do we know now” about Africa and provide an example of why Hyden states, for example, “Compliance rather the deliberation.” In other words, what does Hyden mean by compliance and deliberation, and can you provide a concrete example of what he might mean by this in Africa?
