I will treat you with respect by coming to class prepared, on time, and ready to learn, I can only ask the same from you. I have high academic expectations and a lot of enthusiasm for my student teaching experience. Talking in class and speaking in class are not necessarily the same. Do your best to recognize the difference. Cell phone use will not be tolerated unless instructed otherwise. Please refer to the student handbook for policies regarding inappropriate behavior and consequences.

Course Outline Sociology = 0.5 Credits The student is introduced to the basic methods and principles of sociology. Emphasis will be on personal development, family, group behavior, culture, class stratification, deviance, crime, and gender. The course stresses the development of critical thinking skills through an analysis of current events and the students own life.

Attendance More than 6 absences will equal loss of credit. Coming to class less than 10 minutes late equals a tardy (2 tardies = a cut), and more than 10 minutes equals a cut. Dont be late.
