For this writing assignment, address the following questions and submit responses here. Written responses should be about 2 pages because I would like you to deeply consider these questions and provided a narrative response.
1. Describe a situation when you experienced a conversation that was shut down. In what ways might you have used or did you use the responses to Dialog Blockers that may have helped the conversation reach a greater understanding?
2. What observations have you made regarding the ways in which sociology/social science can/should be applied in a work experience (we practiced applying perspectives to news, this is an opportunity to apply to work)? How might you go about sharing that perspective in a way that is heard?
3. Discuss what might get in the way of you having productive dialogs on hot topics and/or not sharing social science perspectives in the place?
