The best kind of project in my opinion is one where students are asked to find and organize information for themselves. When studying the differnet types of societies [pastoral, horticultural, hunting and gathering, agricutlural, industrial, and post-industrial[, I have them do a series of thinking map [graphic organizers]. Included are directions and pictures of the organizers they need to do. This could be used with any sociology book that talks about the ways societies are organized based on subsistence strategies. WHEN PRINTED DOUBLE SIDED, YOU CAN CUT THEM IN HALF AND YOU GET TWO OUT OF EACH SHEET!
