Welcome to the SAGE edge site for Sociology in ActionThird Edition!

Sociology in Action, Third Edition is an introductory text that encourages doing sociology through real-world activities that emphasize hands-on work, application, and learning by example. Each chapter is written by a specialist in that subject who also shares a passion for active learning. Edited by Kathleen Odell Korgen and Maxine P. Atkinson, this text explains sociology's key concepts and theories, and pairs that foundational coverage with a series of carefully developed, assignable learning activities that prompt students to think and reflect, observe, analyze, investigate, and apply what they are learning.

This site features an array of free resources you can access anytime, anywhere.


We gratefully acknowledge Kathleen Odell Korgen and Maxine P. Atkinson for writing an excellent text. Special thanks are also due to Graphic World, Inc. for developing the resources on this site.
