Sociology: McDonaldization of Society

Part A

Think about your favorite sport, and give examples of how calculability is present in that sport. What do you think about it? What are numbers you find particularly useful/relevant, and particularly annoying/useless/ridiculous? Do the stats and other numbers enhance your fan experience, or come in the way of it? You may do some online research to bring specific examples, making sure to include the URL for the sources you mention.

Part B

Write a 3 page journal in MLA 12-point and double spaced. The first 2 pages should be the essay and the third page should be the reference page. NO PLAGIARISM. Make sure it is clear and concise.

Drawing on Ritzer’s description of the McUniversity in particular, this assignment requires you to do the following:

  • Analyze your experience looking at those elements that fit with a search for greater efficiency, and those that do not.
  • Overall, would you say that your education experience is efficient, or not? How so?
