As students begin to think about their futures and what they may like to do with their lives many things come to mind, we are encouraged to take electives, and find things that further interest us for when we do ultimately go off to college and into the real world. One of these electives offered at Clearfield is Sociology.

Although I’ve just begun the Sociology course, I am already enjoying the class and I feel as if I’m learning a lot about the subject, which is all you can really hope for out of an elective.

Mr. Billotte teaches the Sociology course and there really is never a dull moment, he always includes his students in conversation and he enjoys hearing the different views of every single student he teaches. We learn a lot about human behavior, social organization, culture, and social change this way and it is also an effective way of learning further about writing and reading skills outside of an English class.

Some of the things we do in Mr. Billotte’s Sociology course are vocab, current events, exams, and note taking. As of right now though, we are learning the basis of what Sociology is before we dive into anything bigger, although we have been informed of a project that is coming later that is about breaking social norms. This project can be done in a group or on your own, where we choose a task that violates a social norm in public, such as paying with change, cutting in line, space invading, or talking really loud. The purpose of this assignment is to help expand our understanding of social norms.

If you are at all interested in learning about people and cultures, as well as many other things, and if you are considering a career involving Sociology or Psychology, I believe Sociology would be a beneficial class to take to really understand and further your knowledge in ways you didn’t think you could. I have enjoyed my time in Sociology and I really believe it is one of the most knowledgeable and fun electives I’ve taken, so I would highly recommend it to anybody who can handle a workload and to anyone who thinks it may be an interesting field to get involved in.
