The Challenge:To become a critical thinker on sociologic issues because ….. your personal history matters!!

Developing Self and Social Consciousness• Distinguishing personal problems from public issues resulting from social structure• Troubles versus issues: personal/ societal• One mans death is a tragedy 45 people killed by a terrorist blast is a statistic.
