Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Professor Plume teaches this class in a captivating way that every student can appreciate. All of his lectures relate to every-day life and I found myself thinking differently after the course. You will learn so much about the way other cultures live which will give you a new appreciation for them, as well as the life we are accustomed to in America. Through this course, you will learn to observe the people around you and open your heart to ideas and people that you may not before taking this class. I truly believe every student enrolled in college should be required to take this course.
Through this course, I was able to to appreciate the many different ways of living among cultures. I was closed minded and set in my beliefs before taking this class. Living as a middle-class family, I did not understand why it was so hard for people to get jobs and make enough money to support themselves. It only took about two weeks into the class to discover it was my own ignorance that was leading me to believe these things. Sociology is able to portray so many different walks of life and Dr. Plume does a fantastic job of making the students realize that society would be a better place if we took time to create relationships with cultures outside of our own. It was a great feeling to leave his class wanting to make a difference in society and knowing I was a better person because of it.

Advice for students:
You need to keep an open mind and really listen to what the professor is trying to convey. The class is mostly lecture but he also leaves the floor open to students to ask questions and discuss the material taught that day. The tests reflect the material learned in lecture and the book so as long as you attend class regularly and take notes, you will do just fine.
