Wednesday Watch Day! I hope you're enjoying whatever you've selected to watch. You can watch more than one item if you'd like. Ex: if you've been watching Sherlock, you can switch over and watch the first episode of Elementary at any time if you also have access to that. For this week, if you're watching Sherlock watch series 2, episode 3 "The Reichenbach Fall. If you're watching Elementary, watch season 1, episode 3 "Child Predator." If you're watching the movie, go ahead and finish it. After you have done your watching for the week, complete the graphic organizer listing the major and minor characters for each version you have experienced.

Sociology

*This will be the same procedure as last time. You'll have a section of notes to complete using whatever brilliant means you can find, including phone conferencing with your friends. I do plan to post an answer key once I have work submitted from every student. This is the last section of notes you’ll have before an open notes test.


Norms

________________ are rules and expectations by which a society guides the behavior of its members.

_______________________ norms that are widely observed and have great moral significance. Example:

_______________________ norms for routine or casual interaction. Folkways are less about what is right and more about what is rude. Example: 

_______________________ _________________________ attempts by society to regulate people’s thoughts and behavior. Uses:

_________________ painful sense that other disapprove of our actions


_________________ negative judgement we make of ourselves

Ideal Vs. Real culture

 ________________ __________________ is what we think our society should be like, and 


__________________ ________________ is what it really is like.
