Interactive “Sociological Imagination” Practice Video with Embedded Questions

Exemplar thumbnail


Elizabeth A. Sowers, an Associate Professor at CSU Channel Islands, created an interactive PlayPosit video for her SOC 100 class to help students achieve a better understanding of the “Sociological Imagination” across the semester. The video includes a recap of the concept, as previously discussed in class, and practice questions, quite similar to those that appear on course exams. This is a resource for students, not an assignment for a grade – but they will practice exam questions in it, so there is a tangible benefit for those who engage.
