A Place for Sociologists

Sociology covers a wide spectrum of topics—race and gender, marriage and family, social class at micro and macro levels, and everything in between. Whether you are teaching an intro course to help lay the foundation or you’re teaching an established group of students who want to dig deeper into theory, McGraw-Hill has the rich and innovative content you need.

Connect: Technology that spurs sociological imagination

Tools like In Your Shoes and Concept Clips are tied to learning objectives and are designed to support student success and help bring sociology to life for students. Immerse students into the course content while you continue to encourage them to apply the sociological perspective and also enjoy it. Use these tabs to explore the tools you’d have at your fingertips with when you use Connect.


SmartBook 2.0 personalizes learning to individual student needs, continually adapting to pinpoint knowledge gaps and focus learning on concepts requiring additional study. It helps students better prepare for class time by helping them identify and focus on the concepts they don’t know. For instructors, SmartBook tracks student progress and provides insights that guide teaching strategies and advanced instruction, for a more dynamic class experience.

In Their Shoes

This decision tree activity illuminates the effect of social forces on the life of an individual. The activity put students in the “shoes” of a character in crisis. Using data and background information, students learn how decisions in everyday life affect people in different socioeconomic positions.

Applying the Perspectives

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.

Power of Process

This activity helps students improve critical thinking skills and allows instructors to assess these skills efficiently and effectively in an online environment. Power of Process includes a set of preloaded classic sociology readings for instructors to use in creating assignments. Using a scaffolded framework such as understanding, synthesizing, and analyzing, Power of Process moves students toward higher-level thinking and analysis.


Tie current news stories to key course topics and learning objectives. After interacting with a contemporary news story, students are assessed on their ability to make the connection between real life events and course content.

Connect Insight

Connect Insight offers easy-to-use visual displays of student performance and gradebook data. Quickly track performance across your entire section, all of your assignments, or drill in to find data insights for a specific class, individual student, or particular assignment.
