SmartBook

Available within Connect, SmartBook actively tailors content to the individual student- The more a student interacts with SmartBook, the better it gets to know what they know and what they don’t know, helping students to maximize study time. By providing students with a safe place to make mistakes, showing them the areas they need to work on most, and by giving them consistent, personalized feedback at the exact moment they need it, SmartBook helps them to bridge their knowledge gaps and come to class prepared.

This critical thinking activity presents students with current events and real-life issues, and challenges them to align the correct sociological theory with the appropriate perspective. The interactive activity helps them start to distinguish, for example, a Functionalist Perspective from the Conflict or Interactionist Perspectives, by identifying common themes.
