Sociology is often a student-favorite course. Classes love to learn about social experiences and relationships. Part of this understanding is rooted in sociological theories. Since there are multiple to learn, it can be hard to keep everything straight. Thankfully, the Sociology Theory Project is the perfect way for students to analyze each theory! Best of all, they will take charge of their learning and apply their knowledge to different tasks!
This comprehensive social theories bundle includes 8 days of a highly engaging project!
The Social Theory Project includes the following perspectives: functionalist, conflict, feminist, and symbolic interactionist. Students will go well beyond surface-level information with this project. Specifically, they will focus on what the theory means, the person behind it, and its history/origin. Students will also analyze how people view society from each perspective and provide examples to prove their responses. Furthermore, students will look into criticism of the theory and why people doubt it. To prove they can apply the perspective to society, they will find a cartoon or video clip that displays the theory’s premise. Lastly, students will have a bibliography to ensure they use credible sources.
While students love to be social, they need to stand back and observe social interactions. This observation is a great way to explore the different perspectives and how they impact people. Thus, students will watch Freaks and Geeks to explore the different perspectives in action. Students love to discuss their findings with each other!
After students learn about a topic, it is crucial to see how they apply it to different situations. Thankfully, the Sociology Theory Project has extension and review activities. For instance, they will look at other theories and apply them to social situations, such as divorce and sports. Students will then analyze which theory they feel describes significant changes in society. There are even review activities to ensure students understand the theories.
Teachers spend so much time grading! Between creating rubrics and going through every assignment, grading is exhausting. Thankfully, the Sociology Theory Project includes multiple rubrics for the different activities. This means you can focus on your students and their learning instead of getting caught up on grading.
