The following document serves as a primer to these topics: Morris_French_Revolution_Primer
We cover the rise of social theory from theorists such as Comte, Durkheim, Marx, Weber and more. This document provides a timeline of the major theorists covered: Morris_Study_Abroad_Scholars
By the end of this course, students progress through Bloom’s Taxonomy of learning by:
- Remembering and understanding how social theory rises from the French Revolution and similar conflict for social justice. Also, how English Common Law shaped modern law.
- Applying knowledge of social theory by actively engaging with the tours and writing reflective journal entries.
- Analyzing the different elements of justice as well as English law compared to U.S. processes.
- Evaluating experiences each day with journal entries and program book report essay.
- Creating a learning portfolio consisting of essays, journal entries, photos, and appropriate segments from the assigned essays.
