Writing Assignment 3:

Groups and Labels


Think back to your social experiences in High School and produce a social typology i.e., identify the major social divisions among students and give each one a label (e.g., Jocks, Dweebs, Headbangers, etc.). For each group, including the one in which you placed yourself, reflect upon the kinds of things people in that group valued most, and the form of identity they sought.

Your paper should be no fewer than three full pages long, double-spaced, typed.

The assignment is due in class on Friday, October 6.
