  • Each module ends with a “Write a Caption” exercise that challenges students to create a photo caption describing the sociological relevance of the image, reinforcing the idea that key text concepts can be observed in everyday interactions and activities.
  • The uniquely integrated relationship between the text and the engaging visuals elevates chapter topics beyond the sum of their parts to give students insight about how to describe and know their world using sociological concepts.
  • Photographs, charts, and other visuals take on unprecedented significance in SEEING SOCIOLOGY’s instructional content and approach. Each image was chosen by Joan Ferrante or taken for this text with a clear pedagogical purpose. Photographs and accompanying captions are integrated into the flow of the text to illustrate key sociological concepts and enhance student understanding. These “SocScenes” allow students to visually apply sociological concepts as they read about them.
  • Extremely reader friendly, SEEING SOCIOLOGY included students in its original development, look, and feel. Photos by some of Dr. Ferrante’s students are featured in the text. Students who purchase the book are invited to submit their own photos through the CourseMate website and then vote for their favorite to be included in the next edition.
