Sociological Approaches to Race, Ethnicity, and Gender

Sociological Approaches to Race, Ethnicity, and Gender
Read the Discussion Participation Scoring Guide to learn how the instructor will evaluate your discussion participation throughout this course. After completing the Unit 1 assigned course reading, answer each of the following questions in your initial post: • What are the key differences between racial and ethnic groups? • What does it mean to say that race and ethnicity are social constructions? Address why it is important to consider race, ethnicity, and gender as social constructions. In your response, be sure to discuss the process of racialization, and how race and ethnicity have come to be identified as important social categories. • In what way is gender a social, rather than a biological concept? Do you see any differences in how gender is constructed, versus race and ethnicity?
