The topic of human-animal studies (HAS) remains largely ignored within the sociology classroom.

Cundiff, Patrick R.; McLaughlin, Olivia; Brown, Katherine; Grace, Keiondra – Teaching Sociology, 2020

This article presents an in-class exercise that teaches students how to call elected officials about a course-related issue of their choice.

Gillis, Alanna – Teaching Sociology, 2019
Two common ways that instructors assess participation in sociology courses are recalling participation by memory or counting times spoken during class in real time.

Izienicki, Hubert; Setchfield, Scott – Teaching Sociology, 2019
The role of extra credit in the college classroom has been examined as a philosophical and pedagogical issue, but in this project, we argue that the matter of extra credit is also a sociological one. Using survey data, we examine how college instructors' status and individual demographic characteristics are related to the use of extra credit. We…
