The final report should be labeled and organized in the following format:
Summary: Provide a detailed description of each location referencing the guiding questions provided in Step 2 of the assignment. Use your field notes to support your descriptions. Limit this section to observable phenomena ? things that you saw during your visit.
Social/Neighborhood Context: For each location provide information about the social context. Where is this store located? Who does it serve? Use the data/information you gathered in Step 3 of this assignment to describe important aspects of the surrounding neighborhood and its inhabitants, i.e., their racial/ethnic breakdown, the foreign-born population, the median annual income, etc.
Interpretation: In this section, compare and contrast your observations of the two markets. Among other things, you should think about whether and how your actual observations differed from your initial predictions. You should apply sociological concepts that we’ve learned about in this class — both from our textbook and from your review of sociological journal articles — to help make sense of your observations. Each time you reference a sociological concept (like, for example, cultural diffusion, industrial food system, cultural anchors, or transnational corporations), italicize that term in the text.
Conclusions: What are the most important things you learned through this exercise in “doing sociology”? What does this research tell you about globalization in our metropolitan region?
