Principles Of Sociology
What to expect in an online class.
I look forward to our sociological journey that we will begin in the Spring of 2017.
What to expect?
The class information is divided into units. We will use a system to organize class information, post on forums, and take quizzes. Assignments will be turned in on Google Classroom. The expectations in each unit include:
- A post to the forum question I pose.
- Responses to fellow classmates on class forum.
- There are four major sections in each unit. The sections progress from simple to more complex understanding of the information.
A.) Read textbook material (textbook will be provided), view the PPT, or watch a video lecture. These tasks are flexible.
B.) Recall information such as a definition, term, or procedure.
C.) Compare, organize, interpret, modify, or summarize information. (This portion of the unit is labeled “Know the Concepts”)
D.) Strategically, think, apply, and analyze information. This portion of the unit is labeled “Apply and Analyze."
The class is graded based on total points.
We are scheduled to participate in at least one real world sociology assignment. We will visit a senior citizen home to participate in an intergenerational project.
