For Sociology Students
Reel Society 2.0 is designed to help you develop a sociological imagination and see how sociological concepts described in an introductory sociology course can help you better understand your own life and the society in which you live.
You can use the Story mode for watching Reel Society as a movie, making decisions for the characters. Topic Summaries and links to online assessment are ideal for review.
You can use the Study mode for watching and interacting with the movie scenes linked to specific topics and textbook chapters. This mode allows you to do frequent self-assessments, answer discussion questions, complete homework assignments, and prepare for tests.
For Sociology Instructors
You can use Reel Society 2.0 in the classroom as a catalyst for discussion, or you can assign students to use it on their own for homework and extra credit assignments.
A detailed Instructor’s Manual (available on the Instructor’s CD-ROM) guides you in making the most of Reel Society 2.0 in your course.
The Scorecard feature tracks students’ completion of CD-ROM assignments and reports completion status to you using e-mail and print features.
The instructor setup feature on the Instructor’s CD-ROM allows you to customize on-screen viewing options and tailor the program for in-class use.
