Welcome to the SAGE edge site for Sociology in Action.

The SAGE edge site for Sociology in Action by Kathleen Odell Korgen and Maxine P. Atkinson offers a robust online environment you can access anytime, anywhere, and features an impressive array of free tools and resources to keep you on the cutting edge of your learning experience.


Wake up your introductory sociology classes! Sociology in Action helps your students learn sociology by doing sociology.

Sociology in Action will inspire your students to do sociology through real-world activities designed to increase learning, retention, and engagement with course material. This innovative new text immerses students in an active learning experience that emphasizes hands-on work, application, and learning by example. Each chapter explains sociology's key concepts and theories and pairs that foundational coverage with a series of carefully developed learning activities and thought-provoking questions. The comprehensive Activity Guide that accompanies the text provides everything you need to assign, carry out, and assess the activities that will best engage your students, fit the format of your course, and meet your course goals.


We gratefully acknowledge Kathleen Odell Korgen and Maxine P. Atkinson for writing an excellent text. Special thanks are also due to Sarah Calabi and all contributors for developing the ancillaries on this site.
