    Learn SociologyAre you looking for a new paradigm for student-centered learning in introductory sociology courses? Look no further than Learn Sociology by Edward Brent and J. Scott Lewis!

    Written with 21st century students in mind, this text presents introductory sociology content in a highly interactive format that is both easy to use and highly compatible with digital applications. Drawing on best practices in educational pedagogy, Learn Sociology emphasizes “immersive learning,” an approach that pairs critical analysis of sociological concepts with examples from everyday life to engage students actively with the material. Weaved through the text are recurring themes that put sociology into context, such as social structure, social control, social inequality, the social construction of reality, scientific knowledge, and social change.

    Learn Sociology optimizes learning through enhanced coverage, study, testing, and review while emphasizing the “applying” that reinforces comprehension. Based on a modular concept format, each chapter in Learn Sociology addresses a major concept in the introductory sociology curriculum. Associated with each module are key learning objectives, preview statements, illustrations, and a concept learning check assessment.

    • Comprehensive and integrated print and digital learning solution
    • Content is highly visual, current, and easy to understand while avoiding distracting and off-topic material
    • Student-friendly price
