‘Thoughtful’ means not just answering the entire question, but providing support for or explaining your answer with your own specific knowledge, experiences, or other examples. Don’t repeat yourself and make sure it is very clear to a non-sociologist what you are saying. You should not go to the internet or any other outside source to answer the questions. The homework is designed to help you work with and apply the concepts to the best of your ability, rather than restate the definitions. You will likely earn all points if it is complete, shows that you have put forth effort, and indicates that you have read the text and paid attention to the lecture. If your answer does include information from another source and you do not cite it, this is plagiarism and you will earn an automatic zero. For citations, I just need the title and author of where you got the information/ideas somewhere either in-text or at the end.
