Class Experience

Students will improve their knowledge of sociology.  There is a lot to cover in an introduction class.  This class will only cover four chapters; The Sociological Perspective, Socialization, Social Structure and Social Interaction, and Social Class in the United States.
I have a Bachelor's degree in Sociology, and a Master's in Social Science, and I am in the last ten classes of my Doctorate in Education. I have taught or am currently teaching biology and science in middle school and high school as well as social science and sociology at the university level.

I enjoy teaching students of all ages.  This is the primary reason that I teach on several platforms.  Please feel free to message me if you have any questions or concerns.  
In addition to homework, the Learner will also have an independent writing assignment or project.

The Learner will have homework each week which will consist of a question that they will answer in essay form.  The topic will be based on the project topic they choose for their final paper.  I will tailor each Learners homework to the topic they choose.  For example, if the Learner chooses "language" as their topic.  The homework assignment may be:  Explain with examples the different ways that "language" is used in American society.

The Learner will have an independent writing assignment that will take up to at least 2 hours for
the duration of the four 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. Any handouts needed will be posted in the Classroom Thread. It is up to the Learner if they want to print a hard copy or just view the copy online.
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.
In my classes, my goal is to open the door of "soft sciences" to Learners.  In this class, I will define terms and give examples according to sociological definitions and perspectives.  There will be no personal definitions or ideals in this class or any of my classes.  The Learners will not be discussing any sensitive topics in the Classroom Thread.  For example, the topic of "social class".  Social class will be defined in accordance with "Sociology, A Downhome Approach".  The examples and discussion will come from the book.  In the college classroom, conversations can be more in-depth.  However, this is not a college classroom.  The goal here is strictly to inform the Learner about sociology.  If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to message me.
The primary source for this class is "Sociology A Down to Earth Approach".  This is an introduction to sociology textbook that I have used in previous university classes.  Even though my sources are university-level textbooks, as a current high school teacher, I feel confident in my ability to share this information at a grade-appropriate, high school level.

Learners will not need to purchase this book in order to take this class.  I will share handouts and copies of certain pages of text in the Classroom Thread.
