Sociology (or social studies) is the study of humans and how they interact. Sociology is central to how we learn and who we are. How we communicate, how and why we govern and create law, how we manage resources, how we innovate, and how we design are all key aspects of sociology and of learning. Courses under the umbrella of sociology include economics, history, ethics, music, art, finance, politics, and literature. Sociology is as central to STEM as science is because it is the human aspect of what we are learning. When we focus on the human aspect of our lessons, we allow all learners to find relevance and meaning in what they are learning - thereby facilitating dendrite connections and allowing teachers to teach in the way the brain learns.
