You’ve  learned  how  important  groups,  roles,  statuses,  and  social   networks  are  in  the  structure  of  society.  In  this  assignment,  you  will   complete  a  short  answer  activity  in  which  you’ll  demonstrate  what   you’ve  learned  by  identifying  and  describing  examples  from  your   own  life.  Use  the  Assignment  2  template  to  complete  this   assignment  
    
YOUR  STATUS  SET,  ROLES,  AND  ROLE  PROBLEMS   1)   Status Set: 
 a)   List  five  statuses  that  you  currently  have.  
  
•   Remember: A  status  is  simply  a  position  you   fill  in  society.  It  may  be  a  job  title,  but  it  could   also  include  a  position  you  fill  within  a  family   or  a  community.  For  more  information,   review  Section  4.3  in  your  webtext.   b)   Label  each  status  as  either  ascribed,  achieved,  or   master.   •   Remember: An  ascribed  status  is  one  you’re   born  with  and  have  no  control  over.  An   achieved  status  is  reached  through  your  own   efforts  or  simply  good  or  bad  luck.  A  master   status  is  so  important  that  it  overrides  your   other  statuses.  For  more  information,  review   Section  4.3  in  your  webtext.

2)   Roles: 
 a)   Choose  one  status  from  your  list.  
  
b)   Describe  the  role  that  is  associated  with  the   status.   c)   Describe  how  you  learned  that  role.  
  
•   Remember: A  role  is  the  behavior  expected   of  someone  with  a  certain  status.  For  more   information,  review  Section  4.4  in  your   webtext.   3)   Role Conflict: 
 a)   Describe  a  time  when  you  experienced  a  conflict  because  of  the   demands  of  two  different  roles  associated  with  any  of  your  statuses.   b)   How  did  you  resolve  the  conflict?  (Discuss  any   conversation  or  social  interactions  you  had.)   c)   List  any  active  listening  skills  you  used  to  resolve   the  conflict.  If  you  didn’t  use  active  listening   skills,  then  list  the  skills  you  could  have  used  to   resolve  the  conflict.   •   Remember: Refer  to  the  active  listening   skills  checklist  in  page  2.10  in  your  webtext.
