A lively mix of traditional readings, blog posts, and activities to help students connect sociology to their own lives.

Everyday Sociology Reader combines classic and contemporary readings by sociologists and seeks to meet students where they are, offering observations on popular culture, family life, news events, and other aspects of everyday life. Posts from the Everyday Sociology Blog and traditional readings have been chosen for their relevance and readability; all are written in an engaging manner in order to engage students new to sociology and sociological thinking.

Each section of the book features three blog posts and two traditional readings, as well as discussion questions, activities, research ideas, and essay suggestions so that students become not just active in the learning process, but creators of sociological thinking as well.
