For Help with Blackboard: Help Desk: (480) 965-6739 Help Desk Email: [email protected] Textbook: Getting Started in Sociology , Second Edition, McGraw-Hill, 2006. A Word about Course Content: In large lecture classes such as this SOC 101 course, inevitably there are one or more students who feel uncomfortable with course material that entails profanity, sexuality or violence. If you are such a person, you will not be comfortable with some of the material presented in this class. The presentations some guest speakers will make, and portions of some videos I show, contain material that is sexual, profane or violent in nature. I chose the speakers who come and talk to you about various course topics because they are experts in their respective fields. I chose the videos I show because they do a good job of illustrating certain sociological concepts, theories or processes I wish to have illustrated for you. In other words, I do not choose these speakers and videos because they have “R-rated” content. At the same time, I would not exclude them from usage because of that content. Everyone is welcome in my classes. However, if you are a person who is uncomfortable with R-rated-type material, you may wish to drop this class and replace it with a different section of SOC 101, or with another class in the social-behavioral category, which would yield the same type of course credit toward your graduation requirements and with which you would be more comfortable. If you choose to remain in the class and simply absent yourself from class sessions entailing ‘R-rated’ material, it will be your responsibility to get notes on what you miss from a classmate, as is my policy regarding students who miss class for any reason.

Page 2 of 9 Homework: Homework for this class consists of doing the textbook readings and taking notes on the corresponding “Study Guide” outlines I provide, before we discuss the readings as a class. Reading-discussion dates are on pp.6-7 of this syllabus. Study Guides: In Blackboard, click on the link “Study Guides” to download outlines for course material (readings, videos, guest speakers) on which you will be tested. Take notes on these outlines while you read, watch videos, during lectures and/or when you hear from guest speakers. Any item that appears on a study guide may result in a test question. As I will not have time to cover all the study-guide items in class, it is your responsibility to take
