Ebook

Norton Ebooks give students and instructors an enhanced reading experience at a fraction of the cost of a print textbook. Students are able to have an active reading experience and can take notes, bookmark, search, highlight, and even read offline. As an instructor, you can even add your own notes for students to see as they read the text. Norton Ebooks can be viewed on—and synced among—all computers and mobile devices.

InQuizitive

InQuizitive is Norton’s award-winning, easy-to-use adaptive learning tool that personalizes the learning experience for students and helps them master—and retain—key learning objectives. Through a variety of question types, answer-specific feedback, and gamelike elements such as the ability to wager points, students are motivated to keep working until they’ve mastered the concepts. Students then come to class better prepared, giving you more time for meaningful discussions and activities. InQuizitive can also improve students' test grades when assigned consistently for points, as a part of the overall course grade. The convenience of LMS integration saves you time by allowing InQuizitive scores to report right to your LMS gradebook.

The Sixth Edition InQuizitive course includes a NEW How to Read Charts and Graphs activity that helps students develop interpretation skills. These skills can be applied to data presented in any visual format. Chapter-based InQuizitive activities have been revised and improved based on student and instructor feedback. Some questions new to the Sixth Edition address new content while others reflect an applied focus. The latter variety increased by roughly 10% overall.

Videos and Animations

You May Ask Yourself offers a wealth of video resources:

• Thirty Sociological Conversations videos feature Dalton Conley interviewing sociologists who discuss how they approached a topic or research question and reinforce the ways that sociologists question conventional wisdom. Conley also interviews career professionals, such as lawyers, artists, and politicians, who use sociology in their daily lives. 
Sociology on the Street videos make abstract and complex ideas more accessible and demonstrate how students can put the most important sociological concepts into action. 
• Brief Paradox animations narrated by Dalton Conley motivate the reader to determine the key sociological concept that illuminates the Paradox introduced at the beginning of each chapter. Alongside revisions to Chapter 8, Gender, in the Sixth Edition we have a (NEW) Paradox animation for that chapter.

NEW Writing for Sociology Tutorials

Available to students at digital.wwnorton.com/youmayask6, these tutorials strengthen essential skills such as evaluating sources, developing research questions, choosing a research method, and crafting an effective introductory paragraph. They are a helpful assignment to give students the opportunity to practice their writing skills.

Coursepack

In addition to chapter-based assignments, test banks, and quizzes, our coursepacks provide streaming versions of the Interviews, Animations, and Sociology on the Street videos along with related assessments. Other features include the following:

• Easy access to InQuizitive from the coursepack encourages students to read, helps them understand chapter content, and prepares them to perform well on coursepack assessments.
• Assessments that relate the Sociological Conversations videos tie key chapter concepts and learning objectives.
• Exercises that allow students to work with 2010 Census and Community Survey Data
• Revised and improved chapter review quizzes that instructors can use for post-lecture and reading assessment
Sociology in Practice streaming film clips and activities that include multiple-choice assessments that connect each clip to key sociological concepts and allow students to apply what they’ve learned to new contexts (select clips only)

Test Bank

Norton uses an innovative, evidence-based model to deliver high quality and pedagogically effective quizzes and testing materials. The framework to develop our test banks, quizzes, and support materials is the result of a collaboration with leading academic researchers and advisers. Questions are classified by section and difficulty, making it easy to construct tests and quizzes that are meaningful and diagnostic.

The questions in the You May Ask Yourself test bank, 15% of which are NEW to the Sixth Edition, were written to conform to Bloom’s taxonomy. There are 60–70 multiple-choice and 10–15 essay questions per chapter. Available in PDF, ExamView, Word, and BNK formats.

Sociology in Practice streaming video clips

The popular Sociology in Practice streaming video series includes five volumes, including a new installment, Sociology in Practice: Thinking about Gender.

These clips contain over fourteen hours of video clips drawn from documentaries by independent filmmakers. The videos are ideal for initiating classroom discussion and encouraging students to apply sociological concepts to popular and real-world issues. As noted above, the clips are available in the coursepack.
