1) The Uniform Crime Report (UCR)- Chapter 7 (Deviance, Crime, and Social Control) describes several ways in which the Uniform Crime Report may present
an inaccurate picture of the demographics of crime- Describe the sources of bias that lead to these inaccuracies- Are these biases better explained by
conflict theory or functionalism? Justify your answer. Be sure to also consult the Uniform Crime Report (UCR) website, as well as the National Crime
Victimization Report (NCVR) website during this process- Then, consider how this connects to Robert Merton’s idea that labeling can bring about self-fulfilling
prophecies; that inaccurate beliefs, if repeated loudly and frequently enough, can become true-


2) Social Status and Cultural Capital- According to Max Weber, the traditional source of wealth-owning the means of production-isn’t the only factor in
determining social status (Chapter 9: Social Stratification in the US). How does Weber conceptualize power and prestige? Why does he argue that power
and prestige, in addition to material wealth, are important factors in determining a person’s social status? Then, consider that half of all children grow up to
have the same socioeconomic class as their parents- Discuss the ways in which Pierre Bourdieu’s concept of cultural capital influences this phenomenon,
