Macrosociology and Microsociology

Macrosociology and microsociology are two different approaches that sociologists use to research and understand the social world. Macrosociology is a ‘”big picture” approach, through which sociologists explore social issues at the structural and institutional levels. Microsociology is focused more on the individual and small groups, examining social interactions and social construction of reality. For this assignment, (1) identify an editorial piece or opinion-editorial piece on a recent or ongoing news story, (2) evaluate the use of both macrosociological and microsociological perspectives by the author of the piece. Does their argument rely more on one than the other? Is there a healthy balance between the two? How might the argument be made more effective by integrating the two? Your paper should be between 500 and 700 words. It should include a properly formatted citation of the piece you are evaluating. (Any of the three styles are acceptable). https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/research_and_citation/using_research/citation_style_chart.html
