This impressively organized site, which was designed by Lisa Korpics, a teacher at the Valley Central High School in Montgomery, New York, offers unit plans that take educators and their students through a crash course in sociology. The course begins with an Introduction to Sociology, then proceeds with an overview of sociological theories, before presenting sociological information about subcultures, countercultures, criminology, families, marriage, social movements, social structure, deviance, and more. Along the way, readings and notes root the discussion in historical examples, from Karl Marx to The Sociology of Breaking Bad. The course is aligned with Common Core, which can simplify its introduction into school systems that are integrating the government standards into their pedagogies.
