Lorenzo S OCIOLOGY 101 H OMEWORK Q UESTIONS These are due at the beginning of each class, preferably typed . Remember, the point of these assignments is not JUST to demonstrate your knowledge of the reading, but your ability to USE the knowledge you have gained. Getting into the practice of correctly attributing sources is a key skill to learn during college. I absolutely DO expect you to include parenthetical citations when you take information from your textbook—either by quotes or paraphrasing. The first citation in each of your homework assignments should include the textbook author and page number (Witt, p. 78), all others just need a page number (p. 222). I do NOT expect you to include a separate reference page with your homework unless you use material from somewhere other than your textbook. I have relaxed this rule for these homework questions so we can all save some trees, plus I expect your citations will overwhelmingly be from your textbook. 3

What students are saying

    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.
