This exercise was designed for a sociology course. Students will evaluate and analyze hypotheses using qualitative data they collect through an interview process.
With this assignment, students will experience the thrill of "doing" sociology rather than just reading sociological findings.
This activity students identify variables and hypotheses about gender and family to create an interview schedule and collect their own qualitative data.
