    Sociology

    Instructor: Mr. Gabriel Zimmerly

    Sociology is a “Social Studies” course that focuses on the study of human social relationships and institutions. Sociology’s subject matter is diverse, ranging from crime to religion, from the family to the state, from the divisions of race and social class to the shared beliefs of common culture, and from social stability to radical change in whole societies. Sociology focuses on the group, not the individual.

    Things to Know

    • The restroom/water fountain pass and sign out sheet is located on the table by the door. You do not need to ask to use the restroom. There is only one pass, therefore; only one student may go at a time. You must sign out your time, sign in your time, and carry the pass with you. You have five minutes. Failure to follow these procedures will result in a two-week loss of privileges.
    • Cellphones: must be on silent during class. I will give reminders to silence phones at the beginning of class for the first full week. If phones begin to cause disruptions in class, they will be turned in to discipline
    • Save everything!
    • Food and drink is allowed, as long as you clean up after yourself.
    • Missed work can be found on my website, or by asking your neighbor. Please check both these resources before asking me.
    • There will be no homework in this class.
    • There will be LOTS of reading.
