The Task:
• For the following prompts, write as much as you need to get your ideas
across as clearly and completely as possible.
o Everyone must answer every prompt!
The Prompts:
What is Modernity?
1. Define Modern Society and Modern Sociology to the best of your ability.
o Don’t search for definitions! Use your own words.
o Which author would agree most closely with your definitions? Which
author would disagree with your definitions? Why?
Section A: Compare and Contrast at least (3) thinkers from the second half.
2. Inyouropinion,whoisthemostcorrectaboutwhatsocietyisandhowitworks?
Who is the most incorrect? (Hint: This shouldn’t contradict your previous
definition of modern society in the last prompt question!)
• Alternatively, you may pick and choose across the major themes to talk
about places where the authors are correct and other places where they are
incorrect to provide a more balanced opinion.
3. Inyouropinion,who’stheoryisthemostcorrectaboutthatwhichtheyaretrying
to explain? Who is the most incorrect?
• Alternatively, you may pick and choose across the major themes to talk
about places where the authors are correct and other places where they are
incorrect to provide a more balanced opinion. If you pick the alternative,
you must compare at least three (3) themes.
Section B: DAMN.
4. Choose at least (2) songs from Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. that, in your opinion,
discuss at least (1) of the major themes.
• For example:
o In “Song A,” Kendrick talks about “this theme” when he says,
“Lyric…” (Kendrick, “Song A”). This is similar to how Thinker 1
discusses the same theme. [Then give your own explanation, in your
own words, about how you understand what Thinker 1 says about the
theme].
