Techniques for Teaching Sociological Concepts. Resource Materials for Teaching. 2nd Edition.
Barnes, Roger C., Ed.; Mills, Edgar W., Ed.
The edition presents 69 successful teaching techniques used by sociologists at the college level (in classes ranging from introductory sociology to the many specialized subareas, such as deviance, stratification, education, and theory) that are designed to stimulate student thinking and improve student learning. Each technique features a different sociological concept, teaching objective, references, materials needed, estimated time, procedure, interpretation, possible pitfalls, name and address of professor who submitted the technique, and appropriate course. Some of the concepts included for presentation are culture, education, ethnocentrism, gender, norms, population, power, role expectations, sexism, socialization, stratification, theoretical perspectives, and values. An index of the concept areas is included. (TRS)
