This high school study of human relationships provides comprehension coverage of introductory sociology concepts. It offers high school appropriate content that illustrates current theories and allows students to explore the meaning behind behavior and society’s impact on the individual. Readings and case studies provide students with opportunities to analyze current issues and develop critical-thinking skills.
Topics include: an introduction to sociology, cultural diversity and conformity, social structure, socializing the individual, social control and deviance, social stratification, racial and ethnic relations, gender and age issues, social institutions such as the family, education, religion and politics, the mass media, population and urbanization, and social change. Note: The text covers current issues without getting into the extremes.
The Set includes the hardcover Student Text and CD-ROM Interactive Teacher’s Edition. The CDs include teaching resources, lesson plans, downloads, tests and answer keys, and extended activities.
The Student Textbooks in this series that Pearson Learning has released to Homeschoolers contains online supplemental information and activities scattered throughout the textbook. To date, Pearson has not figured out how they are going to release the access codes in a way that is feasible for the homeschooling market. We have opted to still carry this series since the online resources are supplemental and the course content is contained in the Homeschool Bundle you receive.
