Hungry and Homeless in College March 2017
This report presents findings from the largest survey ever conducted of basic needs insecurity among college students. In 2015, the Wisconsin HOPE Lab published the research report Hungry to Learn, a study based on a survey of approximately 4,000 students at ten community colleges in seven states. This study includes more than 33,000 students at 70 community colleges in 24 states. While this is not a nationally representative sample of students or colleges, it is far greater in size and diversity than prior samples, and provides information to shed new light on critical issues warranting further research.

In this exciting new Eighth Edition of his leading social research text, author Russell K. Schutt, an award-winning researcher and teacher, continues to make the field come alive through research stories that illustrate the methods presented in each chapter.

Writing in Sociology by
Publication Date: 2016-11-30
Compact and inexpensive, Writing Sociology can be assigned even for classes that use only part of the book. Separate chapters for different kinds of writing assignments make it easy to know which to assign. It includes extensive and practical discussion on major phases of research writing -including choosing a meaningful and manageable research question, identifying the relevant literature, and presenting results. And because students often struggle to use sources appropriately, we cover this in detail; topics include how to choose the most useful and appropriate sources,understanding the various ways sources are used in sociology writing, and how to properly cite sources within text and in the reference list. Later chapters provide sophisticated guidance on stylistic and other matters that often frustrate teachers, including use of first-person, organization,writing concisely, and avoiding plagiarism. Because no book can be effective if students don't read it, this book delivers sophisticated writing concepts in a light-hearted style that engages students without being condescending.

Summary: 50 million people in the U.S. - one in four children - don't know where their next meal is coming from, despite our having the means to provide nutritious, affordable food for all Americans. Directors Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush examine this issue through the lens of three people who are struggling with food insecurity: Barbie, a single Philadelphia mother who grew up in poverty and is trying to provide a better life for her two kids; Rosie, a Colorado fifth-grader who often has to depend on friends and neighbors to feed her and has trouble concentrating in school; and Tremonica, a Mississippi second-grader whose asthma and health issues are exacerbated by the largely empty calories her hardworking mother can afford.
