Sociology 3AC - Principles of Sociology
Instructor: Tiffany Linton
Semester: Spring 2016 - Spring 2017
In Dr. Tiffany Linton Page's Sociology 3AC ACES course, 'Principles of Sociology,' students explore different patterns of racial inequalities and their origins. By pairing classroom learning with field work with community partner experts such as the East Oakland Boxing Association (EOBA) and Restorative Justice for Oakland Youth (RJOY), students recognize how institutions have continually created and reproduced the same patterns of inequality, how such institutions have changed, and the affects social movements and circumstances have played in social change.
As a part of the engaged scholarship component of this course, five students developed an online resource guide for girls to discover employment, health and education resources as well as women-specific resources (including shelters for homeless women and sexual health clinics).
