Preparing Graduate Students to Teach: Syllabi and Related Materials from Graduate Courses on the Teaching of Sociology. Resource Materials for Teaching.
Van Valey, Thomas L., Ed.
This publication contains course outlines and descriptions of 13 graduate courses and seminars on how to teach sociology to undergraduates. The syllabi have been selected from universities around the nation. Some of the outlines are detailed, while others are brief descriptions. For example, a syllabus from Texas Women's University on methods of teaching sociology contains a letter of introduction to prospective students; a descriptive outline of course organization, requirements, and evaluation methods; a chart illustrating course format and objectives; a tentative schedule of assignments; guidelines for preparing a teaching unit; and a sample midterm evaluation. Another syllabus from a seminar on teaching sociology offered at Duke University briefly describes course meeting times and readings, details specific assignments and discussion topics, and outlines requirements of the seminar practicum. A table of contents lists courses by university and sociology department course number and by instructor. (LP)
