How does this handout help you understand the Writer’s Statement better?

A large part of your grade in this unit is the Writer’s Statement (See part 2 on your assignment sheet).  An artist’s statement, or a writer’s statement, is a kind of reflection. In order to craft an effective statement, the artist must first reflect on the work they’ve done, the choices they made, and the previous work/experience that led to this moment. For that reason, I want to pause and discuss why we write reflections and what makes a good reflection. This assignment is meant to help you understand the Writer’s Statement so that you can do well on the assignment.
Task:
For this assignment, you should first read Reflection Handout PDF
Actions about comprehensive reflections.  Then answer the questions below.
What are three lessons/ideas that struck you as important or interesting from the handout? For each one, summarize the idea, then explain what this idea/lesson means to you and how will use it to write your own reflection in this unit.
I’ve provided guiding questions for you so that you can write an effective Writer’s Statement in Unit 3. Look over those guiding questions, which can be found in the Final Submission Dropbox.  Draw at least two connections between the handout in this assignment and the guiding questions for the Writer’s Statement. How does this handout help you understand the Writer’s Statement better?
Look at these example artist’s statements. (Links to an external site.) Focus on some of the longer examples, not the really short ones. These are examples of artist’s statements; they are similar to writer’s statements, which you will write. Pick one to discuss:

Identify the one you chose.
What reflective elements do you see in this artist’s statement? What kind of things do they discuss that are reflective in nature? The reflection handout might help you answer this question.
What similarities do you see between the kinds of things the artist statement addresses and the kinds of things you are asked to address in the Writer’s Statement guiding questions?
In what way does the artist address their previous work or previous experiences in their statement?
An artist statement is a specific genre. You are being asked to write a “writer’s statement, which is a little different. Looking over the guiding questions again, in what ways will your Writer’s Statement be different from this artist’s statement that you just analyzed?

How might these differing approaches work together to build a deeper sociological understanding of the issue?

1. Sociology researches social issues through the use of theoretical frameworks. Examine the news and pick a controversial news story about a big current social issue; this could be police brutality, poverty, sexual assault, etc.). Consider what different questions a sociologist researching this topic might ask if they were investigating this issue from a conflict versus functionalist versus symbolic interactionist perspective; this is to say, how would each of these theories examine this social issue? How might these differing approaches work together to build a deeper sociological understanding of the issue?
2. In regards to the sociological imagination, think of a problem that impacts you personally (e.g., the high cost of tuition, unemployment, divorce, etc.) and explain how you would make sense of it differently if you viewed it as (a) only a personal problem or (b) influenced by a public issue. How do possible solutions to the problem differ depending on how you view it?
3. Imagine you would like to look at reasons behind the high college dropout rate in the United States. How might your explanations differ based on whether your analysis was on the micro, meso, or macro level? Why? Which level or levels would you focus on for your study? Why?

Had anything been wrong, we should certainly have heard.

Please help me analyze the following poem  You must cite lines of the poem in correct MLA formatting.
, identify at least three of the implications implicit in the society reflected in the poem. Support your statements by specific references to the poem.
The Unknown Citizen by W.H. Auden
He was found by the Bureau of Statistics to be
One against whom there was no official complaint,
And all the reports on his conduct agree
That, in the modern sense of an old-fashioned word, he was a saint,
For in everything he did he served the Greater Community.                                5
Except for the War till the day he retired
He worked in a factory and never got fired,
But satisfied his employers, Fudge Motors Inc.
Yet he wasn’t a scab or odd in his views,
For his Union reports that he paid his dues,                                                          10
(Our report on his Union shows it was sound)
And our Social Psychology workers found
That he was popular with his mates and liked a drink.
The Press are convinced that he bought a paper every day
And that his reactions to advertisements were normal in every way.                 15
Policies taken out in his name prove that he was fully insured,
And his Health-card shows he was once in hospital but left it cured.
Both Producers Research and High-Grade Living declare
He was fully sensible to the advantages of the Installment Plan
And had everything necessary to the Modern Man,                                             20
A phonograph, a radio, a car and a frigidaire.
Our researchers into Public Opinion are content
That he held the proper opinions for the time of year;
When there was peace, he was for peace; when there was war, he went.
He was married and added five children to the population,                                  25
Which our Eugenist says was the right number for a parent of his generation.
And our teachers report that he never interfered with their education.
Was he free? Was he happy? The question is absurd:
Had anything been wrong, we should certainly have heard.

Lesson
Minimum of 1 scholarly source (in addition to the textbook/lesson)
Initial Post Instructions
For the initial post, address one (1) of the following:
Scenario 1: A colleague from another country has limited English-speaking skills and does not comprehend the group task. Additionally, this colleague has the habit of giving gifts to business associates at the end of projects. Gift-giving is an expected part of business etiquette in her culture. How do you deal with these issues to ensure the success of the group? What criteria would you set early on in the process? Please reference the textbook and an outside source as you attend to the questions for this scenario.
Scenario 2: Your manager asks you to take on a new project that you think you could take on by yourself. He suggests that you form a task group with 15-20 members, which you think is too much. One of the members he recommends adding to the team is John. This gives you additional concern because you think John has had hidden agendas in the past. Even though you think you can do this on your own, how is a group decision different from an individual decision? How can you convince your manager that a smaller group would be better? How do you deal with John if your manager insists on him being in the group? Please reference the textbook and an outside source as you attend to the questions for this scenario.
