Below you will find a PowerPoint presentation highlighting current research that corresponds to each of the twenty-four chapters in the full-size Sociology, 16th edition. These presentations can last for ten minutes or, using the discussion questions, they can fill a class period. These PowerPoints work beautifully with the bound text and with the REVEL e-book.

For Society: The Basics, 14th edition, which presents essentially the same material in just sixteen chapters, you will find one PowerPoint presentation for most chapters and two for chapters that combine topics that appear as separate chapters in the full-sized version.

You will see that some presentations work well in more than one chapter. Review them all to best meet the needs of your classes.
