Sociology by the Discovery Method: Cutting Costs and Teaching More.
Morgan, Gordon D.
This booklet can help college instructors breathe life into sociology classes by showing students how sociology is "done" in the real world. Twenty-nine exercises demonstrate to students how data are collected, how data are used to support or refute ideas, how data are interpreted, and the questions raised by different methods of research. The discovery method moves sociology instruction from the textbook to the real world, and can make the instructor a genuine course leader. In addition to re-sparking student interest, this booklet provides ways to cut the costs to students of these courses. (EH)
