Use of New Approaches in Teaching Sociology (Application of a Technique for Producing Idea)
Eraslan, Levent
Educational Research and Reviews, v6 n1 p131-136 Jan 2011
Society-based research subjects are the study of sociology which is an important branch of science in the field of social science. It is a branch of studying society, social values, social groups, social classes and economical, political, social, religious, lawful institutions, population, usage, custom, value, norm, beliefs and relations and changes between them. In this context, sociology gains sociological thinking skill with its own peculiar methodology, and therefore it helps complex social events to be understood better. Giving the faculty of looking at sociological events with the eye of sociology and sociological thinking to individuals in educational process in early ages will enable the faculty of "understanding" of society and social events to be more established and systematic. It is an urgent need of using teaching methods and techniques leading to critical sight which is the basement of sociology, instead of passive student profile resulting from use of traditional teaching methods and techniques in teaching sociology. It is known well that as a need of modern education understanding, this requirement exists physically in teaching programs but educators are in difficulty of application of new techniques. The main goal of this study is to emphasize the application of modern teaching techniques in teaching sociology actively. For this reason, application of producing idea technique is going to be realized in teaching of sociology.
