Your Task

You will be exploring the topic of "successful schooling" as a social uniting process at Modesto Junior College through the lens of several different sociological theories as spelled out in your assignment. In order to do that you'll need to:

  • Gain a basic understanding of the sociological theories through your class lectures and reading.
  • Explore student success ideas from your peers through interviews.
  • Read published literature (articles, books, chapters, etc.) to explore the history of community colleges and the current conversations surrounding student success as it relates to the social uniting process. 
  • Report on your findings and make recommendations for student success at MJC.
