THEORY 105 POSSIBLE POINTS FOR TEST

 

THIS TEST IS GIVEN IN WORD FORMAT SO YOU CAN HAVE ALL THE SPACE YOU NEED FOR THE ANSWERS THAT THE TEST REQUIRES. PLEASE FOLLOW DIRECTIONS AND WRITE AS MUCH AS THE TEST IS ASKING FOR.

 

AS THIS IS A TAKE HOME TEST, I EXPECT TO SEE THOROUGH, WELL THOUGHT OUT ANSWERS OF SOME LENGTH. I ALSO EXPECT PROPER GRAMMAR AND SYNTAX. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT YOUR TEST WILL BE PUT THROUGH TURNITIN BEFORE IT IS GRADED. THE SYSTEM WILL SHOW ME IF ANYTHING HAS BEEN PLAGARIZED. UNLESS I SPECIFICALLY ASK FOR A QUOTE, ALL ANSWERS ARE TO BE IN YOUR OWN WORDS. OTHER SCHOOLS AND PROGRAMS WILL FLUNK YOU FOR THE ENTIRE CLASS OR EVEN EXPELL YOU FOR THIS OFFENCE. HERE’S HOPING I WON’T NEED TO LEAVE A NOTE FOR US TO HAVE “ A LITTLE TALK”…WITH YOUR ADVISOR, DEPARTMENT CHAIR, ETC…

SYMBOLIC INTERACTIONISM IS MADE UP OF DIFFERENT THEORISTS IDEAS. CONSIDER THESE EXAMPLES TO PAIR WITH THE THEORIST. CONSIDER AN LGBTQ YOUTH IN SOCIETY:

 

THE LGBTQ YOUTH ‘PERFORMS” THE APPEARANCE OF A STRAIGHT PERSON. INSIDE THEY ARE NOT. THEY DO THIS TO SURVIVE AN UNFRIENDLY ENVIRONMENT/SOCIETY. THEY ‘MANAGE” THEIR ACTIONS AND REACTIONS TO AVOID STIGMA, MISTREATMENT AND HARM TO THEMSELVES.

THEY LEARN HOW TO BEHAVE AND DEVELOP THEIR “SELF” BASED ON INTERACTING WITH OTHERS AROUND THEM.

S/HE LEARNS HOW TO BEHAVE BASED ON RESULTS THEY NEED. OR WHAT THEY THINK WILL HAPPEN

S/HE WISHES THAT PEOPLE WOULD UNDERSTAND HOW THINGS ARE FOR THEM, AND NOT A “CIS” STRAIGHT PERSON. AS THINGS ARE VERY DIFFERENT.
