Social Construction of GenderSocialization and the Social constructs of genderGender and familiesSocial Interaction in Everyday LifeA fundamental feature of social life is social interaction, or the ways in which people act with other people and react to how other people are acting. To recall John Donne, no one is an island. This means that all individuals, except those who choose to live truly alone, interact with other individuals virtually every day and often many times in any one day. For social order, a prerequisite for any society, to be possible, effective social interaction must be possible. Partly for this reason, sociologists interested in microsociology have long tried to understand social life by analyzing how and why people interact the way they do.Social Constructions of RealitySocial construction focuses on how meaning is created, and that knowledge is a social product, collaboratively created by society. As a member of society, the individual is placed within various power hierarchies, and create meaning within their environment.The sociological concept of reality as a social constructDefine roles and describe their place in peoples daily interactionsExplain how individuals present themselves and perceive themselves in a social contextDescribe what is meant by dramaturgy and by impression management.Provide examples of role conflict or role strain.Explore gender differences in nonverbal communication.Describe the difference between a status and a role in everyday life.The difference between an ascribed status, an achieved status, and a master status in everyday life.
