John Carlrsquo;s interest in sociology grew from his interests and job experiences after college, which included working in hospitals, schools, churches and prisons. John reflects, ldquo;In these many diverse encounters I continued to notice how often the structures of society often did not support the change so desperately sought after by the individual.nbsp; I began to reflect on my sociology courses from my undergraduate work and decided to return to graduate school to study sociology.rdquo; nbsp; Returning to graduate school at the University of Oklahoma, he became passionate about the study of Criminology and Stratification completing his Ph.D. while teaching full time at Rose State College.nbsp; John says, ldquo;I found that every part of my life to this point, fit perfectly with the study of sociology.nbsp; It is a diverse and exciting field that helps a person understand their world.rdquo; nbsp; Today, teaching remains his primary focus. John Carl has excelled in the classroom, winning awards for his teaching and working to build and improve the sociology program at Rose State.nbsp; ldquo;I teach the introductory class every semester because I believe it is the most important course in any department.nbsp; It is where students get the foundation they need for their continued study of sociology.nbsp; In these classes, my goal is simple.nbsp; To teach students to think sociologically so that they can consider any new event in the light of that thought.rdquo;nbsp; nbsp; When asked why he wroteThink Sociology, the answer was simple: ldquo;This book is truly a labor of love for me.nbsp; I wanted to write a book that is filled with examples used in the classroom and written in a language that students can understand without compromising the core concepts of sociology.nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp; nbsp; John lives in Oklahoma with his family, wife Keven, and daughters Sara and Caroline.nbsp; In his free time, John plays golf, gardens, throws pottery, and plays his guitar.nbsp; He continues to move from the classroom to community by being active in non-profit leadership in his home community and providing training to non-profit boards so they may better achieve their goals.nbsp; John suggests,nbsp;ldquo;It is all part of sociology, not only to understand the world in which we live, but to take that understanding from the classroom and use it to improve the community.rdquo;
