1. Sociologist C. Wright Mills makes a distinction between viewing something as a “personal trouble” and a “public issue.” What does this mean? Choose a social problem and describe how it would might be defined or explained if it was understood as a “personal trouble” versus how we would understand it if we viewed it as a “public issue” instead (the textbook uses unemployment and eating disorders as two examples here. You can use one of those, or pick your own instead.)
2. Define the functionalist, conflict, and interactionist perspectives in sociology. For each of these perspectives, give a real-world example which helps to illustrate it (you can take this example from course material or from your own life/experiences).
