Introduction to Sociology
Sociology is a relatively new scientific discipline among other social sciences including economics, political science, history, anthropology, and psychology. It is the study of the social lives of humans, groups, and societies. Sociology concerns itself with the social rules and processes that bind and separate people not only as individuals, but as members of groups and institutions.
By studying sociology, students will gain a greater understanding of themselves and the world around them. They will broaden their view of the world and identify different perspectives. Students of sociology will see beyond their own daily realities and view the world from others’ eyes.
Students will come to class prepared with their text, notebook, writing utensils, and completed assignments. Students must behave in such a way that is conducive to a classroom, a learning environment. All students' rights to an education must be observed. Students must respect school property and the property of others.
Make-up work is the responsibility of the absent student. Students must see me before class, after class, or during break for their missing assignments. Test and quizzes must be made up during my prep if the student is available or before or after school. Quizzes not made up one week after the absence will be recorded as a zero.
If work is not passed in on the due date, students will have only one additional day to pass in the work for credit. The late work will only receive a maximum of 80%.
Extra assignments are offered to help students master the competencies.
