Jacobs, Townsley, Living Sociologically 1e


Living Sociologically: Concepts and Connections is a contemporary, applied introduction to the discipline. The authors take an innovative approach to theory by structuring the book around five sets of paired concepts.  These paired concepts show students the interdependent ways in which social forces work, and use the same terminology sociologists have developed for describing, analyzing and understanding the social world. Active learning activities invite students to develop and practice key skills of the sociological imagination and engage them throughout the course. Learning goals use the paired concepts as a scaffold to provide students with critical and analytical thinking skills transferable to other courses as well as the workplace and the community. With evocative examples from current events and research, a focus on the global as well as the local, and an emphasis on how sociology can help students in their careers, Living Sociologically: Concepts and Connections highlights the relevance of what students are learning in the course.
