- From the Instructor:
- Hello Everyone! My name is Jamee Kristen. I am the instructor for this course. I've been teaching college-level sociology courses for over fifteen years. I started teaching at Washington State University, while a master's degree student. I then taught at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where I completed my Ph.D in 2001. After graduate school, I taught at University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Roanoke College in Virginia, Southeast Community College in Lincoln, Nebraska, and am now full-time at Portland Community College. In addition to teaching sociology courses, I also co-chair the Peace and Conflict Studies program at PCC.
- Course Specific Requirements:
- There are two required texts for this course. Both are required to complete assignments during the first week of the course. So, if you are ordering your books from the PCC Bookstore or elsewhere, be sure to order with enough time for shipping. I will not accept late work because you do not have the books the first week. The texts are only available at the PCC Rock Creek campus bookstore. They are not available at the Cascade or Sylvania campus bookstores. If you buy your books from the bookstore, I strongly recommend you have the Course Name and Number (Sociology in Everyday Life SOC 204), my name and the CRN handy.
