Sociology Assisted Living Getting OldFood for Thought:

One of America’s growing social problems is the increasing number of elderly individuals in this country with medical issues. Medical technology has made it possible for many to live longer, but is it worth the price that many have to pay for longevity? As your parents and/or grandparents near the end of lives, you and your family members will probably be asking some serious questions about the quality of his/her life. Such as “ How long should life be extended and by what means? “Is the pain your love one experiencing too great to bear? “How can the quality of life for your love one in their final days be improved? “How can you or anyone else, determine or evaluate the quality of your love one’s life? 


After viewing the documentaries “Facing Death”and Life & Death in Assisted Living ask yourself, “Are you prepared to deal with your aging parents and/or grandparents as they near the end of their lives? Would you try to prolong their lives after the quality of life is no longer worth living? Are you, yourself, prepared to live old in America?

Art

1) Visit a site where you can find original artwork. The goal is for you to experience original art of some genre. Ideally, you will go to a physical space and interact with the artwork and/or an audience in some way. If you are unable to physically go to a space to experience art, please contact me so we may discuss alternatives for you.

When you arrive at the space you have chosen, relax. Clear your mind and let your senses take everything in. Spend time; don't make judgments immediately. What are you drawn to? Why? List observations (colors, focal points, shapes, lighting, attire, etc.) Are there questions that arise? Talk with someone else (friend, security guard, seat mate). Think about context; what do you know about the artist/performer/composer? What does it say about gender? Take notes while you are there!!!

Some suggested spaces in the Eugene/Springfield area include the following:
Galleries/Museums: The University of Oregon Museum of Natural and Cultural History, the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art at the UO, the LaVerne Krause Gallery, Karin Clarke Gallery, Art Annex, White Lotus Gallery, Maude Kerns Art Center, Jacobs Gallery at the Hult Center, Karin Clark Gallery, Art Annex, La Follette Gallery, DIVA, EMU Galleries, Springfield Museum, Lane County Historical Museu, coffee shops, libraries, book stores, and many others.

Performance: Hult Center for the Performing Arts (featuring local companies such as Eugene Opera, Eugene Ballet, Willamette Repertory Theatre, Oregon Mozart Players, the Bach Festival, etc. + many touring shows), Lord Leebrick Theatre, Very Little Theatre, Lane Community College, Cuthbert Amphitheatre, Actors Cabaret, Cottage Theatre, The Shedd, Wildish Theatre, and many others.



2) Choose an artist/artwork/song/composer/performer (or several if it is a theme show) or juxtapose two differing artists/artworks, etc. whose art you think would make a good subject for a gender critique. It's important for you to choose an artwork or artist whose work lends itself to this type of questioning strategy so that you will have plenty of material with which to work. An ideal situation would be to interview the artist.



3) Take your notes, apply the themes, readings, discussions, etc. from this course to construct an essay around the work. It could deal with male or female imagery, the artist's intent, the process or style of making the art, the subject matter, the context for viewing, etc. It should not focus on the difference between nudity and nakedness. If you choose to explore these topics, it should be very significant to your reading, i.e. analysis and interpretation, of the work. Allow the details of the work to bring out the analysis and interpretation around questions for gender and art.

4) Research your selected artist, artwork, and gender issues within the artwork you selected that will further support and assist the development of your analysis and interpretation of this work.


5) Write an approximately 3 page essay that includes:

An introduction
Detailed, specific description(s) of the artwork(s) and where you found it/them (include a sketch or photo of the work when possible, though this should not be a part of your three pages)
An analysis of the art in relation to class themes, readings, lectures, and discussions (Include AT LEAST a minimum total of 3 sources; two of three can be from required course readings). Cite all sources used for ideas. Sources should be cited both internally and in a reference list (see #6). Internal citations should correspond to the reference list.
Your personal opinion/argument (this should flow with the analysis and apply the selected readings and related sources as supporting and/or guiding evidence)
A conclusion
A reference list of resources cited (please use APA, MLA, or another very consistent style throughout the essay

Revise and edit your essay before you turn it in. This means that you have tailored in thoughtful ways based upon your first impressions of the work. You have a clear purpose and guiding theme for the discussion of the image(s) and artist(s). Check spelling, grammar, phrasing, referencing style, organization and transitions as well as clarity of content and connection to course readings. Review the Essay Grading Rubric.

6) Revise & Edit your essay. Ask friends, colleagues, and other classmates to review your essay. Read it OUT LOUD. Check grammar, content, spelling. Does the essay really say what you want it to–and when you want it to?

Should all immigrants get id card
Length requirement: 6-8 pages

Write an essay in which you take a position on a controversial issue. The issue about which you write must directly affect you or members of a community to which you belong. Consider choosing current debates (try browsing newspapers’ opinion pages and especially
The New York Times’ “Room for Debate”).

Include the following in your essay:

An Introduction to the Issue:
Begin by explaining the issue to your readers, defining key or unfamiliar terms, giving them a sense of the history of the debate. Tell readers who the debate's outcome affects and how it affects them–that is, what's at stake. Consider beginning with a dramatic story or example. Assume that your readers know very little about the issue.
A Clearly Articulated Position:
Be sure that your essay includes a clear articulation of an arguable position. Take a strong stance, and make sure you're not arguing about a matter of taste. Consider following a statement of thesis with a forecasting statement.

Reasons and Support for Your Position
Continue by presenting reasons for your position. Reasons are often based upon widely shared values (privacy, freedom, tolerance) and consequences (to persons and communities, to economies, nations, and corporations). 

Support your reasons with
-logic
-facts
-statistics
-narratives
-anecdotes
-examples from literature, film, television, new media, history, science, news stories

The more support you provide, and the more varied it is, the more persuasive your essay will be.

An Effective Counterargument
Be sure to anticipate reasons for opposing your position. You could refute them, but you might simply acknowledge or diminish them. Use phrases like “Although…” Some may argue…” “While it's true that…” to introduce opposing viewpoints. Above all,

Essays must cite at least 6 credible sources.
At least 2 of your sources must come from a database. At least 2 of your sources must come from a newspaper or news blog (in print or online). At least 1 of your sources must be from a media source (television, film, radio, blog, etc.).

Essays must follow MLA formatting and citation standards (see ANGEL for a variety of links and resources for MLA help).

Submit a stapled, hard copy of your essay and portfolio in a folder. You must as well submit the essay to turnitin.com.
