Analytic means you are not just summarizing the article or media example, but instead you are explaining some aspect of it in sociological terms. This analytic paper will be on the article attached regarding the forgetting of Natural Disasters.
Thesis: Come up with an argument or thesis and support. Make a pervasive, persistent case that a certain thing is true about a piece of literature. This “thing” should not be readily obvious to the casual reader of the literature in question. It is what you draw out of the book or essay, how you interpret it. It is a claim that must be supported by specific evidence from the text.
Analytic paper Criteria: respond to it, evaluate it according to some specific criteria, examine it for cause-and-effect linkages, contrast it to what happened elsewhere, to what might have been, or to what we have today.
The article i attached is about eating disorders. . You must read the article I attached below in order to write this paper, you can skim through un-important stuff but get a good understanding of what is happening.
Now after the article is read, pick a specific argument that relates to sociology (so a topic that relates to behavior). .
Now, although you should focus on why this behavior occurs. The paper is analytic and must focus MORE on how we can change this behavior or at least its most negative effects on others.
Give different arguments on how we can change the behavior.
You can compare and contrast the different arguments as well.
Our teacher told us it should not be descriptive, but more analytic and to focus more on analyzing and finding solutions to the problem.
