Introductions and A Call for Input

Welcome back to the Teaching High School Sociology Blog. My name is Caitlin McGrew and I will be taking over this blog, from Chuck (thank you, Chuck!). I currently teach at Rutherford B. Hayes High School in Delaware, Ohio. Similar to Chuck, I plan to share resources and lessons so we can have an online community where we can connect, collaborate, maintain an updated curriculum, and continue to grow as Sociology teachers.

One space I plan to use to collaborate is a Google Drive folder in which I will store files I blog about, and other resources that are high quality for you to implement in your classroom. If you have a lesson or resource you wish to add to the folder, please email it to

I hope to also include book and video reviews that are pertinent to our content, and appropriate for our students.

My AP Psych students and I were able to meet Dr. Zimbardo!
If you have a topic you are interested in reading about, a weak area in your course you want to improve, or resources you want reviewed, please send me an email at

To conclude, here is a little background information about me: I have been teaching for 3 years in central Ohio, and I am originally from Northeast Ohio. I have taught World History, Sociology, Geography, and AP Psychology. I have presented at various local and state conferences on topics including the Flipped Classroom, Google Apps, and Mastery Learning. Thank you for reading my first blog post, and for joining me as we transition ownership of the THSS blog!
