McGraw-Hill Education’s Sociology and You is a comprehensive sociology course for high school students that includes print and online resources. The course introduces students to the study of social structures and includes engaging multimedia features, such as videos and interactive learning tools, which support instruction in blended learning environments. Learning List has recently completed a review of Sociology and You.
Sociology and You addresses how social structures shape human societies and behavior. Content is organized using Understanding by Design® (UBD) model, which frames instruction in terms of “Enduring Understandings” and “Essential Questions.” Chapters open with essential questions to guide students’ thinking and include a “Technology and Society” feature that examines how technology influences social experiences. Chapters include primary source documents for analysis and hands-on projects.
Lessons begin with lesson-specific essential questions, a brief overview of content, and an explanation of why it matters to students. Students have access to a glossary in Spanish and English and online libraries of “Skills Builder” and “Test Prep” resources. Skills Builder resources address geography, research, writing, and presentation skills and include links to college and career readiness development materials. The Test Prep library provides rubrics and resources to improve test-taking skills. Click here for an outline of the course or here for a program overview.
