Make Sociology new with McGraw-Hill’s Connect Sociology and the 2nd edition of Sociology in Modules. New to Connect is Investigate Sociology, a brand-new tool that develops students’ sociological imaginations by placing them in provocative scenarios where they must analyze various sources and determine a solution. Connect also comes with LearnSmart, an adaptive questioning tool proven to increase content comprehension and student results, as well as fun interactivities like In their Shoes and Applying the Perspectives that teach sociology’s three theoretical frameworks. Finally, make sure students come prepared to class by assigning our many e-book activities. With McGraw-Hill’s digital tools, focus on what you do best—teaching.

Unique to this program, Sociology in Modules 2e has the most flexible content on the market. Instead of losing students in chapters that are long, unspecific, or out of order, customize your text and assignments with our modular approach, which breaks chapters into more manageable, topic-focused sections. Sociology in Modules’ flexible content coupled with powerful digital learning tools makes this an ideal choice for your introductory course.
