Throughout the course, you have learned about different types of social groups and the important ways they influence society. In addition, you’ve studied the dynamics, stratification, and inequalities that can occur among groups. We are faced with increasingly complex and rapidly changing social situations in our society, and while we are all members of the groups, organizations, and governments in our environments, we are also their creators. Social groups can be powerful forces and they may be the stepping-stones and building blocks for social change.
In this assignment, you have the opportunity to summarize factors that contribute to group dynamics, social inequality, and social change within major social groups (Course Learning Outcome #3).
