Status and Roles
For this assignment, you will complete a two-part assignment on status and roles. Please label the sections in the assignment as Part I and Part II.
Describe some achieved and ascribed statuses you possess that are important to your identity. Make sure to label which is achieved and ascribed to. Why are those statuses important to your identity? Discuss how at least one social factor (i.e., culture, demographics, occupation, group membership, or social class) impacted at least one of your career or educational achieved statuses.
Role strain, role conflict, and role exits occur in connection to our status. Discuss one example you have experienced with role exiting. To what extent does your experience match Ebaugh’s four stages of role exiting described in Chapter 5 of the textbook? How did role conflicts or role strain contribute to the role exit? You are required to cite the textbook at least one time in the assignment, and other peer-reviewed references are optional. Adhere to APA Style when constructing this assignment, including in-text citations and references for all sources that are used. Please note that no abstract is needed. The assignment must be at least two pages in length.
