Course Description:

This course is designed to provide an introduction to sociology. This course will discuss what sociology is, what sociologists do, and emphasize critical thinking. This course takes a particular interest in racial, social, and gender inequality.


COURSE OVERVIEW


Exams: There will be 4 exams administered in this course. The questions on the exams will be taken from the readings & lecture. Students are responsible for all of the material in the text. Exams will consist of True/False & multiple choice questions. Students will need a number 2 pencil and a 50 count Scantron sheet for each exam. Four equally weighted exams will be administered this term. There will be no make-up test if you miss the exam on the scheduled test date unless arrangements have been made prior to the test date. If an alternate test date should become necessary, the test must be taken within 5 days of the originally scheduled date. Cheating/collaborating on tests is strictly prohibited. Anyone caught engaging in this type of behavior will be dismissed from testing and given a zero for the exam. Students will be allowed to use the whole class period to complete the exam and may be quietly excused once they submitted their exam.


Late Credit & Make-up Exams: No make-up exams will be given unless you have an emergency (i.e. illness, death, flat tire). In such cases, you must contact me no later than the day of the exam to inform me of your situation and provide written documentation.


Attendance Policy: Class attendance is mandatory. Three or more unexcused absences will result in your grade being lowered by 1/3rd of a letter grade (i.e. B+ to B). An unexcused absence is one in which the instructor is not notified about the absence in advance (1 day) to the class meeting. When unavoidable circumstances or illness result in absence, it is the students’ responsibility to contact the instructor prior to the beginning of the scheduled class session by e-mail or phone. You must have a signed note from health professional, mechanic, employer, etc. for me to consider the absence as being excusable. If you expect to have problems arriving on time or need to leave early, be sure to speak to the instructor as soon as possible.


Leading Class Discussion: This involves students answering questions based upon the readings. You must answer these questions when called upon in class. You also must type out and email your answers to Sharon Murphy (smurphyel@aim.com and ab7150@wayne.edu) and me (kharib@wayne.edu) by the end of the day in which you are to answer questions. See the Course Calendar for the day in which you are to lead class discussion. I’ll email you the questions that you will have to answer on the Saturday before class.

Submitting a question for a guest speaker: This involves students emailing me questions that you plan to ask the guest speaker during their presentations. The websites from which you will develop questions are all listed below in the course calendar. You must email me (kharib@wayne.edu) and Sharon Murphy (smurphyel@aim.com and ab7150@wayne.edu) the questions at least 2 days before the scheduled presentation.


Extra Credit: Volunteer at any of the Detroit city non-profit organizations listed in the Extra Credit organizations file for at least 1.5 hours and report the following to the class (approx. 5 minute presentation);


  1. Name, History, Mission or Purpose of the organization- (e.g. what do they do).

  2. When and where (address) did you volunteer? How long did you volunteer?

  3. What did you do? (i.e. how many meals did you serve, how many clothes did you sort, how many kids did you tutor, etc…)

  4. How did your experience open your eyes to the problem / cause in which you were volunteering for.

  5. From a sociological perspective, what would you say is the reason for why the individuals/groups you helped are in need of help?



I also need a signed statement from an organizational representative with their name, email, and phone number so that I can contact them to confirm your volunteer effort. You also must type out and email the answers to the above questions to Sharon Murphy (smurphyel@aim.com and ab7150@wayne.edu) and me (kharib@wayne.edu). Lastly, you must sign the liability form.


Cell Phone Policy: Turn them off and don’t use them in class while class is in session.


Drop Policy: Please refer to the Wayne State University Drop Policy
