Explore the basic tenets of Sociology through analysis and discussion of the Harry Potter Series.
We will delve into culture, socialization, social organization, social institutions, and social change. It is strongly recommended that students have read the Potter series. If the series was read some time in the past, a refresher prior to the class is highly encouraged.
We will cover basic Sociological and apply those concepts and frameworks to the world created in the Potter series—class, elitism, prejudice, group dynamics, family, etc.
Note to parents:
- While every effort is made to steer away from heavier issues, due to the discussion-based nature of the class, some topics may be brought up by students that require a certain level of maturity.
