Step One

Using your social problem, describe how the people affected are influenced by others who are in their groups. IMPORTANT: look up full text sources that further develop the influences the people experiencing the social problem must manage on a day to day basis.

Step Two

Describe group influences on this group both formally and informally. What formal group pressures perpetuate this problem? What informal group pressures make this problem challenging to resolve?


Remember: You are expected to use textbook readings to support the statements made in your writing. Develop your thoughts around the statements made to show the depth of the problem and the challenges involved with solving the problems within your societal issue. Be sure to use section headings for each of the topics you address in your paper followed by a discussion of that topic.
