★ What Teachers Like You Said...★
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Dawn B. said, "This resource has been very helpful during this time of political and racial unrest in the country. Of course every educator should check in with their classes before going here, but my students really did well with learning the concepts while keeping in check what was going on in the community."
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Kelly D. said, "This bundle is worth every penny! Makes my life so easy, just print and go!"
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Catie F. said, "This is my first year teaching sociology and I was nervous. I found some intro resources that I liked, but didn't love and was nervous that I would have to create my own resources, something I definitely did not have time for. Enter these interactive notebooks. I found my first one and fell in love. These are very engaging and the perfect level of challenge for my students. I do teach virtually this year and had to edit quite a bit to make it work for my students, but it is still a great resource and the students are loving them. I am just going through the units as the seller as them and adding in my own activities when we come across a topic that I want to stress more and it has been a huge hit. I have been building my own physical version of the notebook for my records and will definitely be using these within a physical classroom. Thank you for sharing such great resources!"

*** Each unit contains daily lesson plans, ideas for implementation, and tons of creative and engaging resources. Oh, and don’t forget about the editable component. You can use that to customize and digitize! ***
➩: Introduce the discipline of sociology to your students. They’ll learn about its history, theories, theorists, and career opportunities with highly engaging, interactive lessons.
➩: Research doesn’t have to be boring! Teach your students about some of the most famous and fascinating sociological studies and guide them step-by-step through the sociological research process. You won’t stop there, though! Your students will implement all they’ve learned by conducting their very own sociological research.
➩: Don’t clean your plate when you dine in China. Never accept a gift the first time it’s offered in Japan. Visiting France? Please don’t smile at strangers on the street. What is that American work ethic all about? Help your students explore the components of culture through the sociological lens with these highly engaging activities.
➩: How do we become who we are? Is it nature or nurture? Students will explore these questions and more from the sociological perspective starting with the most interesting topic for teenagers–themselves!
➩: Groups and Fads and Decades, oh, my! How do different types of societies organize themselves and why? Your students will even take a dive into the phenomena of cults from a sociological perspective in this engaging unit.
➩: What do race, class, and gender have to do with our opportunities in life? What about where we’re born, disabilities, and age? Your students will use sociology to delve into these questions on a macro and micro level. Watch the light bulbs go off as their compassion and perspective broaden!
➩: The one unit your students will anticipate the most! Students will explore what deviance and conformity really are and why people do both. They’ll see the changes in each over time and place. They’ll understand that deviance can actually be quite harmless–even good. They’ll also see that deviance can be the stuff of true crime.
➩: Students will use the sociological perspective to see that institutions don’t have to be places. They’re the family, the government, religion, education, work, and the economy. Sound boring? Your students won’t think so. They’ll be too busy engaging with the highly interactive content in this lesson.
➩: Urbanization, globalization, social movements, population shifts–they all lead to change. Society’s always in motion, and it’s mesmerizing to watch it through the sociological lens. Students will learn where we’ve been as a society and where we’re going. They’ll even give designing their own city a go!
➩: Digital flipbooks, webquests, presentations, gallery walks, and more–all in full-color on Google Slides that students can type right on to and submit to you on Google Classroom or whatever your LMS happens to be. I’m still working on the last three units, but they’ll be there soon. I also add resources to this folder periodically that you won’t find anywhere else!
