Summarize it.

2. In your textbook, check pages 33-40,

Summarize it.

Do this afterwards:

Write down the first three steps of the scientific method. Think of a broad topic that you are interested in and which
would make a good sociological study—for example, ethnic diversity in a college, homecoming rituals, athletic
scholarships, or teen driving. Now, take that topic through the first steps of the process. For each step, write a few
sentences or a paragraph: 1) Ask a question about the topic. 2) Do some research and write down the titles of some articles
or books you’d want to read about the topic. 3) Formulate a hypothesis.

Have this table (page 46) in mind:
