Howard, Jay; Butler, Jess – Teaching Sociology, 2018
Discussions of the core in sociology have focused on faculty members' perspectives regarding what should be taught in introductory sociology courses.

What happens when the outside world begins to affect the classroom? Is the classroom supposed to be neutral, objective, and devoid of feelings?

Johnson, Melencia M.; Mason, Philip B. – Teaching Sociology, 2017
Students in mixed race classrooms often find it difficult to discuss race. Using an assignment where students must have a conversation with someone who lived during the Civil Rights Movement (CRM) brings an element of oral history into the discussion of race and ethnicity. Students are able to discuss race using a historical lens from the…

Introductory sociology courses encourage students to shift from understanding social relations and inequalities through an individualistic lens toward a more sociological one. It is difficult for students to know how far they have advanced toward a sociological perspective if they do not have a good sense of where they began. This paper describes…

Given that so many college students take Introduction to Sociology or Social Problems or both, we wondered about the amount of content overlap in these courses. We designed a study that used content analysis of syllabi from these courses in order to measure the amount of convergence between the two classes. In our sample, nearly 70 percent of the…

Introduction to Sociology at a large public university was taught in two separate formats, blended learning and lecture, during the same semester by the first author.
