Here are the notes for this chapter. I have one section to go, so you might want to wait printing out the last page until I add to it (right now it’s only a few lines at the top of a page). This should get us through next week. Yay Divorce Court
Notes are up. We will be covering norms and values this week.
This week, we will be looking at the different ways that sociologists view society. These perspectives are the basis for how we will look at various topics throughout the rest of the semester.
For my Sociology and Cultural Studies students, this is largely a test. We will see how the next few weeks go with bringing notes to class, being on task, etc. If things go well, then you get to keep this privilege. If not, it’s back to the old-fashioned way!
