For Thursday, 5/25 (SOC 1103)

May 25, 2017
  • Benokraitis (2015), from Ch. 10 (‘Marriage and Communication in Intimate Relationships’)

We’ll focus on Sections 10.7, 10.8, and 10.9 — don’t worry if you don’t have the eighth edition; just focus on the sections having to do with communication and conflict in intimate relationships.

We’ll also review for the final, which will be due after the weekend.

Scratch what I was saying about reading Barry Wellman’s article. Unfortunately, we’re fast approaching the scheduled due date for the final exam (5/25, but I might give you all a couple of extra days); in light of this, we’ll talk about writing and revising on Tuesday.

We’re also required to do some make-up work for the snow days; for the first snow day, please watch the following documentary, which provides some supplemental history on workplace design. You’ll be expected to make reference to it on your final, in addition to the other three required texts.

We’ll continue discussing the Gladwell essay. Please review it before class.

For Friday, 5/26 (SOC 303)

May 15, 2017

Before

  • HW Due: Research Proposal, Final Draft. You’ll submit all the relevant links before you leave class on the 26th (that way I can make sure you don’t forget anything), and I’ll wait around 24 hours before I start grading; that way you have a chance to make any last-minute changes you can.

During

  • SOC 303 Posttest
  • Oral Presentations. I’ll be in our regular classroom this Friday the 19th, 1-4:30; do I have any volunteers to present that day? That way, we won’t have to rush as much on the 26th.
  • LAB: Budget Proposal (those of you who come the 19th: we can spend some extra time on this beforehand)
  • LAB: Ethics Consent Form

After

  • Exhale!
