MOST COURSE NOTES, HANDOUTS, HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS, AND ANSWER KEYS WILL BE AVAILABLE ON THE WORLD WIDE WEB. Unless I say otherwise, you are expected to print out notes beforehand and bring them with you to class. Sometimes, we may be covering topics a little ahead of schedule, so you should also try to print things out at least a week ahead.

Course Syllabus for Sociology 63993 - Page 2 If you are having trouble accessing or printing the handouts, you should speak to me or the TA immediately. Don’t wait until the last minute to print something. Classroom Format/Readings/Exams, Homework, Paper Readings & Lecture. I will lecture heavily from the handouts I give you, deviating as the need arises. You should at least skim through handouts before class and be prepared to ask questions. Occasionally I will give you short exercises to work on in class. Obviously, the readings can go into much more depth than I can in class. They also provide additional examples. You may find that the course notes are adequate for most of your needs, but at a minimum I would suggest going over the excellent and concise Allison and Berry and Feldman books carefully. You should definitely do the recommended readings whenever you want additional help. I will indicate when I think the readings will be especially useful. Parts of the readings sometimes go well beyond what is covered in this class, so do not be frustrated if you can’t always follow them. Stata and SPSS.
