There is a strong tradition of creating both sociologically-informed biographies and sociologically-informed autobiographies in the discipline of sociology. The socioautobiography is a “disciplined, systematic exploration of one’s life from a sociological point of view” (Hill, 2009, p. 3). Also, the sociobiography is the systematic exploration of another person’s life from a sociological point of view.
For this assignment, you will be doing one of those (your socioautobiography) in the form of a Narrated PowerPoint, and for Week 7, you will interview an adult of your choice to create a sociobiography, then, also in the form of a Narrated PowerPoint.
For this week’s socioautobiography Narrated PowerPoint, you will reflect on your own life story, making connections between your everyday life/life story and the broad sociocultural structures within which you live.To begin this assignment, consider your own life as you review all the textbook readings and online weekly lessons and decide which sociological concepts you wish to explain in connection to a part or parts of your own life story. Focus on vocabulary words in bold in your textbook reading, for example, and decide which terms apply to you and to your life story.

For this personal case study project, you are required to create a narrated PowerPoint presentation with audio and/or video within the PowerPoint. The audio/video must be part of the PowerPoint file.

Include details of family, culture, and background.
Consider what types of categories a sociologist might use to describe you.
Audio Narration:Allow the audio narration to serve as the main explanation of the presentation. Do not use blocks of text on slides. If you want to add additional written explanations, in addition to the audio narration, you may add that in presentation notes for slides.
Engagement:Be sure to deliver the presentation in a professional and engaging manner.
Visual Aids: Include photos of yourself and photos or symbols that represent the sociological concepts you are analyzing in your presentation. Your own personal photos do not need to be cited, but if you use any images from the Internet or from any sources other than your own personal photographs, you must include citations for those and those citations are *not* part of your required 3 outside scholarly sources plus the online Lesson or textbook.
Key Words in Bold and Underlined: Be sure to include 6 different concepts, key words, or vocabulary words from Chapters 1-6 in your analysis and observations on your slides, formatted in boldface and underlinedon slides

Remember, cite sources for all images, too, that are not your personal photographs and those sources do *not* count as part of your 3 required outside scholarly sources plus the textbook/lesson.
