    Sociology of education, EDU 202 is a one semester, 2 credit unit


    course. It will be available to all education students


    at under

    sociology of education, socialization and social stratification, education


    and social values, social functions of education and


    sociology of


    teaching.



    The material has been developed for students of NOUN by referencing


    some available work such as those of universities in Nigeria and foreign


    text for universities across the globe to train B. A (ED) B.SC (ED) B. Ed


    and P. GDE.



    Course Aim



    There is a need to study the relationship between education and


    the


    society for better understanding of the functionality of the sub-systems


    in the society. It also aims at exposing the


    student teachers to


    contemporary educational issues for proper performance in


    the


    classroom.



    Sociology aims at drawing the attention of the student teacher to the


    cross cultural analysis of social issues for better understanding of their


    environment.



    Course Objectives



    To achieve the aims set out above, the course sets overall objectives. In


    addition, each unit has also specific objectives to be achieved. You

    should refer to them during your study of the unit to check for your


    progress. You should always look at the unit objective after completing


    a unit. In this way you can be sure that you have done what was required


    of you in the unit.

    reference books and other materials, provided by NOUN. Each unit


    contains self-Assessment Exercises (SAE) and Tutor Marked


    Assignments (TMA) and at points in the course you are required to

    examination. You are expected to apply the information, knowledge and


    techniques gathered during the course.



    There are fourteen tutor marked assignments in the course. Your tutor

    count 30%, while the end of semester examination will contribute the


    remaining 70%. At least 75% attendance at Tutorials and counseling


    sessions must be met.



    How to Get the Most from This Course



    In distance learning, the study units replace the university lecturer. This


    is one of the great advantages of distance learning, you can read and


    work through specially designed study materials at your own pace and at


    a time and place that suit you best. Each of the study units falls on a


    common format. The first item is an introduction to the subject matter of


    the unit and how a particular unit s integrated with the other units and

    the course as a whole. Next is a set of learning objectives that will allow


    you to know what you should be able to do by the time you complete the


    unit. You should use this objective to guide your study.



    Self Tests are interspersed throughout the unit and answers are given at


    the end of the units. Working through these tests will help you achieve


    the objectives of the units and prepare you for the


    assignments and


    examination. You do each self test as you come across it in the study


    unit. There will also be some examples given in each unit, work through


    these when you come to them.
