Teaching Social Theory: Syllabi and Instructional Materials. Resource Materials for Teaching.
Latimore, James, Ed.; Levesque-Lopman, Louise, Ed.
One of a series of resources for teaching sociology at the postsecondary level, this volume contains syllabi and resource materials for instruction in social theory. Material is divided into four sections. Section I, an introduction, describes the nature of social theory and provides tabulations of the kind of theory courses offered at the graduate and undergraduate levels. In section II, a total of 20 syllabi for undergraduate courses in social theory are divided into categories of courses with a classical focus, courses focusing on contemporary theories, courses covering classical and contemporary theories, and courses emphasizing theory construction. Section III contains nine syllabi for graduate courses, grouped according to the categories described above. For each course description, the following information is generally included: instructor and university, course overview, requirements, reading assignments, course outline, evaluation method or specific test questions, and reading materials. The final section, an appendix, contains a checklist for reviewing syllabi of courses on social theory and an alphabetical list of contributors, their addresses, and the page on which each syllabus is located.
