Sociologists define society as a fairly large number of people who reside in the same
geographic area, are independent of other people who are outside their territory or
area, and participate in a mutual culture. Sharing a similar culture with other
members of society helps to define the group to which you belong. Members of the
society share a cultural experience, transmit it from one generation to the next, and
archive their culture through various means of expression, such as art, literature, and
even video recordings.
Task: Write an essay that highlights your understanding of culture and the process of
social transmission within a society. Please provide two or three examples of cultural
transmission within a society in your essay. Your essay must be 400-550 words,
adhere to MLA writing style guide, and use (either by direct citation or paraphrase)
at least three academic sources. Academic sources may include books, journal
articles, news sources which enjoy longstanding acclaim (for example NY Times,
Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Sun Sentinel, Palm Beach Post, Time Magazine,
the Atlantic, etc.), expert interviews, documentary or educational videos, existing law
or regulations, etc. Academic sources do not include: wikis, blogs, websites
unaffiliated with research organizations, and any other non-peer reviewed sources.

Your response should be about one page – but do not let it exceed two pages. It should be double spaced, with one-inch margins and a 12 point font. It should include a clear thesis and a set of arguments that responds to the questions below. Since you will be referring to more than one document in your essay, please carefully indicate which document you are referring to in your writing and use quotation marks when necessary. Do not worry about footnote or citation formatting, but you do need to indicate sources. You do not need a separate source page.
Responses will be graded according to the following criteria:
Is the response written in essay form, with a thesis, a set of paragraphs that each address a distinct argument in support of the thesis, and a conclusion? (3 points)
Does the response address all the questions posed? (2 points)
Does the response demonstrate that the student has done a close and careful reading of the text? (1 point)
Does the response demonstrate a concerted effort to think about the significance of the text and its relationship to course topics and other texts? (2 points)
Does the response make sense? Are the ideas within it clearly communicated? (2 points)
Questions to be answered:
Please develop a thesis statement for your essay that responds to the following question: Why is this document significant for understanding how the market revolution shaped society?
What does Robinson’s document tell us that “An Account at Lowell” does not?
How did the market revolution affect women’s lives during the time period?
How does the statement help us to understand social changes that resulted from market revolution and were discussed in lecture – you should refer to at least two topics (e.g. Second Great Awakening, women’s rights, women’s roles, common schooling).
BONUS (for ½ point extra credit) — An “Account at Lowell,” written in 1836, also describes textile mills in the Northeast. Why might Robinson’s statement be considered a more trustworthy source than “An Account at Lowell?” What does Robinson tell us that the “Account at Lowell” does not? Why might “An Account at Lowell” be considered more trustworthy than Robinson’s?
Please answer the following question separately from the essay – include it at the end of the essay as a separate answer. There are no right or wrong answers to this question so do not worry about how it might affect your grade:Please pose at least one discussion question about this reading. If you were leading a class discussion, what do you think would be important to talk about with regard to Robinson’s statement,“Early Factory Labor in New England?

I am working on Brown vs. Board of Education (1954) and writing my plan submission, I did all the steps required but got stuck at the last part. I am asking for help with how to put the rest together and what I am missing. As I am having problems getting things to upload, I had to copy and paste questions and responses.
Describe the historical event that you selected.
Why is this event significant? Brown vs Board of Education 1954
II. Describe at least two secondary sources that you could use to research your historical event. Your sources must be relevant to your event and must be of an appropriate academic nature. In your description, consider questions such as: What are the similarities and differences in the content of your sources? What makes these sources appropriate and relevant for investigating your event? What was your thought process when you were searching for sources? How did you make choices?
III. Describe at least two primary sources that you could use to research your historical event. Your sources must be relevant to your event and must be of an appropriate academic nature. In your description, consider questions such as: How do these sources relate to your secondary sources? What do they add to your understanding of the event? What makes them appropriate and relevant for investigating your event?
IV. Based on your review of primary and secondary sources, develop a research question related to the historical event you selected. In other words, what would you like to know more about?
V. Identify an audience that would be interested in your historical event and research question. For example, who would benefit most from hearing your message?
VI. Describe how and why you can tailor your message to your audience, providing specific examples. For example, will your audience understand historical terminology and principles associated with your event, or will you need to explain these? How will you communicate effectively with your audience?
Topic and Research Question
Topic: For my historical event analysis, I have chosen to focus on Brown vs. Board of Education (1954) where desegregation began with children in elementary school. Where all children in public schools were now equal.
Research Question: Why did Chief Justice Earl Warren decide that this was the time to make this decision?
Search Terms and Sources
Search terms that I have used in my research so far include Christian, S. G. Brown v. Board of Education: 1954 held that segregated schools were unconstitutional, violating the equal protection of the Fourteenth Amendment. With a second primary source from prior history: Appeal from the United States district court for the district of Kansas. In these two sources they provide similar information on how the system works and how the case was handled.
One secondary source is Remembering Brown v. Board of Education: this month marks the 50th anniversary of the landmark decision eliminating the separate-but-equal doctrine. This excerpt, from the book All Deliberate Speed, examines the initial resistance by the local, state, and federal governments.
Why is this event significant? This is significant because it changed history. It made a significant difference in 1954 and it made a difference for many centuries after. Diversity is changing in many schools.
What are the similarities and differences in the content of your sources? In this research, the similarity between both sources is the fact that they both speak about the case and in some detail about how it was handled. In terms of the differences, one of the reasons why I picked these resources is because it provides straight-to-the-point information as to how the case is based on the decisions made, while the other resource focuses more on the families affected at the time of the hearing.
What makes them appropriate and relevant for investigating your event? Providing the closest description possible of the case and how the Brown family felt and what they had to endure.
What was your thought process when you were searching for sources? My thought process for searching was to get as much information on the case to understand why it had been filed in court and what families were affected.
How did you make choices? I made these choices about the resources in order to provide this information as well as answer my question about this research.
In other words, what would you like to know more about? It would be interesting to know more about how this made a bigger movement for diversity and ethnicity in today’s society.
Thesis
In Brown v. Board of Education (1954) African American students were segregated by the color of their skin. Violation of their 14th amendment right to equality. During this period, Chief Justice Warren questioned the segregation of students in public schools and the reasons for it. At this point in history, color separation was a significant factor in their communities and the world. While this event seemed not significant to many, Chief Justice Warren made history and paved the way for change in how people saw races and colors.
Remembering Brown v. Board of Education: this month marks the 50th anniversary of the landmark decision eliminating the separate-but-equal doctrine. This excerpt, from the book All Deliberate Speed, examines the initial resistance by the local, state, and federal governments. – Free Online Library (thefreelibrary.com)
