CONTENT & SUPPLEMENTS FOR YOUR COURSE
I build each of my courses around a core textbook that I have selected myself. The textbook listed for your course is mandatory (and so is reading it)! Click on the image of the book that corresponds to your class, and you will be directed to a page of supplemental materials.
SOC101: Introduction to Sociology
I am so glad that you have enrolled in one of my sociology classes. I have been an adjunct professor in the Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences at El Camino College since 2004. I consider myself a "master of none" because I have so many interests and do a lot of different things outside the realm of academia, including commercial acting, improv, video production, directing and editing, hosting/emceeing (on-camera and LIVE events), youth mentoring, meditation facilitation and live streaming, website building, writing and photography! You can find more about on my website.
I look forward to guiding your exploration of the forces that influence human behavior - both at the societal level and at the individual level. I make sure that the content is relevant and that you will take something away from the class that will benefit your life for years to come.
~ Professor Stone

I take a logical approach to course navigation and everything is straight-forward and clearly spelled out. I stay connected to the class the whole semester, in real time, and continue to refine and update this companion site with useful information and content of sociological interest, which can be found towards the bottom of this page.
I want you to be successful in my course and I am sure you want the same. I've created this page to provide you with information related to what I expect from you, as well as testimonials from students who have taken the time to share their "success strategies" in my online courses. PLease take the time to review this information!
