I’m working on a sociology presentation and need a sample draft to help me understand better.
In this assignment you will consider how the categories of “youth” and “childhood” vary over time and across cultures. To do this, you will answer a series of questions regarding photos you select of the “jobs” of young people in three different contexts: (1) 19th and early 20th-century America; (2) Present day America; and (3) Present Day India, Nigeria, or Brazil (select one).
In present day United States culture, childhood is a nurturing time of carefree exploration and personal development, where a child’s main job is to go to school. However, this was not always the way we understood youth and childhood in the U.S., and it is not how it is understood across all countries. In fact, the concept of childhood is linked closely to social class identities. In other words, in societies (or families) that have more socioeconomic resources, childhood is a time period set aside for parental nurturing, carefree exploration, and personal development. On the other hand, in contexts of severe economic hardships, childhood is a luxury that many families cannot afford. Instead, children enter the labor force at a much younger age as a necessity of family survival (Barone 2015).
Explore the ways that the social identity of “youth” and the category of “childhood” vary across the three social contexts mentioned above by incorporating photos of the expected jobs of young people in each context. Using your selected photos and assigned readings (e.g., course text, resources provided below, supplemental materials provided by your instructor, and two additional scholarly sources), create a 12-slide PowerPoint presentation (including one title slide and one references slide in APA style).
Your PowerPoint presentation should include two main parts:
In your description of each photo, be sure to:
To assist you with this assignment, watch this short video on child labor in developing countries (Links to an external site.), as well as this video on the history and struggle to end child labor in the United States (Links to an external site.) . Sociologists have a rich history of using images to call attention to social issues. For inspiration on this assignment, please also take a look at this short video (Links to an external site.) (or read the article posted below the video) highlighting the work of Lewis Hine, an American sociologist who used photography to advocate for changes to child labor laws in the early 20th century.
