It does so by coupling key theories, approaches, and sub-disciplines to concrete illustrations drawn from contemporary and historical social life. Learning Objectives (1) Understand the concepts, theories, and methods that sociologists use to understand and explain social phenomena. (2) Begin to skillfully consume and apply those same concepts, theories, and methods. Course Evaluation This course gives you three options for how you will be graded.

20% Attendance, quizzes, and class participation (gathered from Turning Technology’s hardware clickers) 45% Three course midterms (graded equally at 15% each) 35% Course final Attendance, Quizzes, and Class Participation (20%) Although recordings and slides from each lecture will be made available on BlackBoard (provided our recording technology works correctly), you are still required to come to class. I will expect you to have completed any assigned readings and viewed any assigned materials (with the exception of in-class films) prior to the lecture for which they are assigned. In class, we will have quizzes and activities, which with you attendance sum to 20% of your grade. This attendance requirement comes into effect during week 2 of class. I will only waive this attendance requirement in two cases. First, because life happens, you may miss three (3) regular lectures over the course of the semester with no penalty . (You do not need to inform me or your TA of these three absences we will automatically drop your lowest three participation sessions.) Second, and provided that you make arrangements to cover the material you missed, students participating in University-sanctioned activities are excused. Students for University-excused absences must provide documentation, but you don't need to notify us when using a no-penalty absence.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
