    Assignment #1: Read the excerpt from C. Wright Mills The Sociological Imagination. Then answer the following questions in one essay.
    – What is the sociological imagination? Why might it be useful?
    – How does Mills differentiate between a personal trouble and a public issue? Why is this
    distinction important?
    – Using your sociological imagination, explain how a personal trouble from your own life could
    actually be part of a public issue. Be sure to support your position that the problem is indeed a
    public issue by citing either a newspaper article or a peer-reviewed article that reinforces the
    public nature of the problem.
    The essay shall not exceed three pages (double-spaced, 12 font).
    Cite the sources (using either MLA or APA format) within the body of your essay as an in-text citation.
    Also provide a works cited page.
