Teaching Research Methods to Non-Sociology Students.
Burks, Jayne Burress
The course description provides objectives and goals, teaching techniques, and textbook selection criteria helpful to college teachers in planning, developing, and implementing research methodology programs for non-sociology students. The four major objectives of the course are: (1) to familiarize students with the library resources for research, (2) to introduce students to basic descriptive and inferential statistical measures, (3) to introduce some important principles of research methodology, and (4) to require students to devise and prepare a proposal for an original research project. Library and faculty cooperation are discussed and types of statistical data and levels of measurement taught in the course are described. "The Practice of Social Research" by Earl R. Babbie is designated as the textbook used to introduce principles of social research. (Author/DB)
