Retrieved from

Using the information on functionalism and Davis and Moore in Ritzer and Stepnisky, as well as from the article linked above, The Functionalist View of Stratification, in a .doc (Word) document of 300-400 OF YOUR OWN words, using APA format and citations (hint: any references cited throughout the course are in APA format!), write a report answering the following questions (PLEASE NOTE: Direct quotes are not permitted – paraphrase information and cite your sources):

  • Explain the functions of social stratification from the view of Davis and Moore.
  • From this view of Davis and Moore, how do we decide which occupations are functionally most important and how society arrives at an appropriate reward for each.
  • Consider some specific U.S. occupations: President of the United States of America, CEO, professional basketball player, electrician, medical doctor, teacher, stay-at-home mother. What are the contributions of these occupations to society? Discuss whether each of these positions is justly rewarded for their contributions.
  • What criticisms (briefly explain at least two) do you have of Davis and Moore’s perspective?
    Use Times New Roman 12 point font, double-spaced. Use paragraphs to indicate a transition from one developed idea to another. See the grading rubric on how your assignment will be evaluated.
