V. Please read chapter on social structure, groups, social interaction, communities, organizations, socieities, and related posted fyi’s, and related PowerPoint Presentation on Course Homepage to address the following: What is meant by the term “social structure”? Describe the social structure of individuals, groups, and societies. What types of groups are there? Why are groups so important to people?

What has been the most important group thus far in your life?

(for individual social structure be sure to describe statuses, roles, and role conflicts; groups – hierarchy, norms, division of labor; and societies – describe preindustrial, industrial, and post-industrial societies. Also, what did Durkheim and Tonneis say about simple and complex societies?)
