Using a Research Article to Facilitate a Deep Structure Understanding of Discrimination
Bordt, Rebecca L.
Teaching Sociology, v33 n4 p403-410 Oct 2005
This article suggests ways in which a current research article on employment discrimination from the "American Sociological Review" can be used in the undergraduate classroom to facilitate deep structure learning (Roberts 1986, 2001, 2002). The exercises are designed for different levels of the undergraduate curriculum and adopt the strategies of benign disruption, inquiry-based learning, and role-taking so students can accomplish higher intellectual development.
