Modern Social Problems  

View Events/Assignments for 

Rooted in sociological concepts and theories, this course examines various contemporary social issues that impact the respective cultures in which they occur. The discussion and analysis of these issues will allow you to not only express your opinion(s) about such topics, but will also allow you to see the opinion(s) of others and their particular perspectives on the issues. This course will not only allow for the growth of knowledge, but also for the growth of acceptance and understanding, and for the development of a strong sociological imagination, by discussing the plights of various groups dealing with a host of problematic issues.


  • NTI #6 (2/12/18)

    Students, for NTI #6, watch NBC Nightly News (from Saturday, 2/10). Take notes while watching. On Friday, we will take an online quiz over that episode. We will NOT watch that news episode in class; notes taken while you watch the news may be used on the online quiz.
    The episode link is attached. It will only be available online through/including Thursday, 2/15.


  • NTI Day(s)

    Any day that MCHS is closed for inclimate weather, your simple NTI assignment is as such...

    Simply watch the news that night (or view it online on NBC Nightly News) and take notes for the quiz the next day.

    When multiple days are missed, save the notes that you take (make sure your name and the date that the notes were taken are on them). When we return to school, those will be taken up as your graded assignment.
