Week 7 Assignment: Sociobiography Narrated PowerPoint – Comparative Case Study
Read/review the following resources for this activity:
As you learned in Week 3, for your Socioautobiography Narrated PowerPoint assignment, there is a strong tradition of creating both sociologically-informed biographies and sociologically-informed autobiographies in the discipline of sociology. The socio autobiography is a “disciplined, systematic exploration of one’s life from a sociological point of view” (Hill, 2009, p. 3). Also, the sociobiography is the systematic exploration of another person’s life from a sociological point of view.
For this assignment, you will be building upon the work you began in your Week 3 Socioautobiography Narrated PowerPoint. For this week’s assignment, you will interview an adult person of your choosing and complete a sociobiography of that person, and present that in a narrated PowerPoint. You will also compare and contrast that person’s sociological characteristics with your own.
To begin this assignment, consider the sociological concepts you focused on for your Week 3 assignment about yourself and consider what sociological concepts you would like to compare and contrast with the person you interview.
Just as you did for your Week 3 assignment, and now, as you create questions to ask the person you interview, consider the following questions for potential use in your interview:
Locate an adult willing to be interviewed about their life story. The person can be any adult you choose, whether in your family or outside your family. Be sure to inform that person that you will be writing up your observations from the interview in a presentation for your Society and Culture course.
In a narrated PowerPoint, compare and contrast your sociological observations about yourself that you shared in your Week 3 assignment with your sociological observations of the person you interview. Address the following 2 important sections:
Include the following in your analysis:
Writing Tip: Focus
As Kanagy and Kraybill (1999) wrote in their book, The Riddles of Human Society, the socio autobiography is “not a diary” or a “point-by-point account” of life since birth (p. 287), and, similarly, the sociobiography for this week’s assignment is not a “point-by-point account” since the birth of the person you interview, either. Feel free to focus on only a part or parts of your life story and of that of the person you interview.
For this comparative case study project, you are required to create a narrated presentation. The audio/video must be part of the PowerPoint file. Audio/video may not be external to the presentation and you must submit a .ppt file extension PowerPoint file.
The presentation must include the following:
