Class Experience

In addition to learning social science basics, it is important for the learner to become comfortable writing short paragraphs or papers.  I include this type of writing in my classes to give exposure to the importance of writing.  I will be looking for class participation, effort, and relevance while reading homework.  It is not to scare the learner or make them think they will fail if they are not comfortable writing.  My goal is to get the learner writing.  So, by the time they are in college, they will be more at ease with writing a paper or whatever their writing may be. 
I have a Bachelor's degree in Sociology, and a Master's in Social Science, and I am in the last 10 classes of my Doctorate in Education.  I have taught biology and science in high school as well as online.  I teach social science and sociology as a university adjunct instructor.  I have been teaching social science for over 10 years now.  I look forward to your Learner enjoying this discipline as much as I do. 

I currently teach high school biology in person.  I currently teach a class in social science and a class in sociology online at the university.  In addition to this, I tutor students in social science, sociology, ESL, and biology.  Teaching is my passion and has been for nearly two decades.  I education and experience work together to provide each Learner with an outstanding classroom experience. 

Social Science discusses race, crime, and other sensitive topics.  However, for the nature of this class, we will only discuss definitions of these topics as related to social science.  There will be zero current events or controversial topics discussed.  Rest assured, that only definitions will be discussed in this class.
The Learner will have an independent writing assignment that will take up to at least 2 hours for the duration of the 4 weeks.  The amount of time spent depends on the Learner and the amount of effort they choose to put into their project.
The Learner will also need notetaking materials such as pen and paper in the event they wish to make notes.
The assessment process will consist of pass/fail for the homework grades, class participation, and the final project.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
There is no prior experience for this class.  This is an introductory level class that will cover the basic skills and knowledge of social science.  The learner should not feel pressured or worried to research this subject or have prior knowledge.

The primary source for this class is a textbook that I use for my Introduction to social science class; "Power and Society".  This is a really good source.  Even though this book is written for college-level students, I have condensed it for high school students.  The majority of concepts are easy to understand and discussion and participation make the concepts easier to understand.

The secondary source for this class is a textbook I used for my Introduction to sociology class;  "Sociology, A Downhome Approach".  

These sources are not required for the Learner to purchase.
