Sociological Imagination Essay Write Up
Take some time to read through some stories written by people impacted by drug use. https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/frontline/interactive/heroin-stories/ Using the sociological imagination, answer the following questions (in at least a page 250-300 words). Please keep in mind that if we begin to see the impact of society has on all of us, even our most personal choice, we can see how the sociological imagination works. 1) What made one (or more) of these individuals begin taking drugs? 2) How can you tie that moment to something beyond themselves? How did their story (biography) intersect with history? In other words, how did what was so personal connect to social and historical conditions? What occurred outside of themselves that caused them to begin to use drugs? Please make sure to use examples from the readings and other course materials (for example, the videos we’ve watched , the personal stories of the people) to help you with your responses.
