Student Resources
There are many resources that are available in the textbook publisher’s website. All of the resources are very helpful for us as students. In the Student Edition there are multiple resources for our use. Out of all the resources I found, I chose to discuss about the Statistics Primer, the glossary and the Web resources. I chose these three resources particularly because they are filled with helpful information. The Chapter I liked to discuss is Chapter five. It explains Social Interaction and Social Structure. In this chapter, I will discuss about the chapter summary and the flashcards.

This is very important for researching about multiple topics in sociology. Every source is great to expand our knowledge about. Without these Web resources being available for us, it would take us time to locate them in order to expand our knowledge.

Chapter five which explains information mainly about social interaction and social structure. I chose this chapter because it explains the sociological structures the most. It explained that social interaction refers to how people interact with each other. And social structure refers to how the society is organized in relationships. People play a magnificent role in the society and that is well explained in this chapter. This chapter explains facts and predictions and the thoughts of researchers and theorists.

This makes his information more ancient and very different. If living around his time era, I would most likely become friends with him the first out of all three of the sociologists.

    There is one central element that I have learned by participating in this social problems course that I found essential to understanding sociology. The common aspect that was presented in about every discussion board topic for this course as a possible solution was education. Without the proper understanding and education for each topic that was provided for us to analyze, I would not have been able to accurately evaluate the various social problems we encountered throughout the semester. This course helped broaden my concepts and ideas that I can use to now use to improve my sociological imagination and apply them to other social problems I might encounter in future courses. Though education is the essential element for understanding sociology,…

    The Importance of Diversity Consciousness I found the sub section talking about networking was very informative. It explains the importance of creating relationships with a diverse population of people to help expand your social networking. By creating these relationships with different people from different backgrounds, the book explains “your being able to draw on a variety of diversity skills “. In addition to the information on networking I found the section Stepping Outside Of Ourselves was very interesting also.

    I think that Goulston’s ideas work well because readers are able to relate to a specific circumstance and then use Goulston’s ideas to come up with a solution to their own problem. Goulston’s ideas work well because they are coming from real-life situations that anyone can be going through. In contribution to the interactionism perspective, Goulston’s ideas work well on a more sociological level.

Throughout the chapters of the book, Just Listen by Mark Goulston, there were many points that I agreed with and related to, as well as a couple of other points in which I didn’t agree with and could not completely relate to.…
