1. Clearly define and describe the issue at hand. What detail can you provide in describing this issue so that the reader knows the specific cultural context for what you are talking about?
2. Provide some historical data and background information regarding this issue. What changes have occurred in this society (or any society or societies that you are discussing) that may be important to our understanding of this particular social phenomenon in the current time?
3. Give some sort of theoretical insight into the nature of this phenomenon. How can we use a sociological theory to gain a better understanding of the nature of this particular phenomenon? If applicable, how might competing theories be applied to describe this issue?
4. Describe the current trends with what is going on with this issue or phenomenon. Be sure to include statistical and other research data to help describe this issue in detail.
5. Describe the impact or expected impact of this issue on the society at large, or some social groups within it (this will, of course, depend on what your topic is). What may be problematic or beneficial about the continuation
of this particular phenomenon for society on the macro level?
