Interested in organizing your introductory course around a reasonable number of active learning projects but can't find the right range and quality of materials? Sociology Through Active Learning is the perfect solution! · Very affordably priced! Even if you choose not to use all of the exercises in the book, your students' pocketbooks aren't penalized. The exercises have been carefully selected from a nationwide search of the best class-tested active learning materials available in sociology. Many teachers want to use "active learning" in their class, but don't have the materials commensurate with that pedagogy. Now you have the best that sociology has to offer! Key Features Gives students the chance to explore in-depth some of the most important ideas in the discipline, by providing hands-on experience investigating empirical and theoretical questions related to your class. Exercises can be used as you choose: as in-class exercises, as out-of-class required homework, and as out-of-class optional or extra-credit work. Some can be accomplished alone; others involve team-work. You might grade them; you might simply give credit or no credit. Involves students in active, hands-on work Contains detailed instructions and a tear-out work sheet for ease of submission and grading. Includes authors experiences with the exercise, including how it furthers specific learning goals and how the current instructions to students facilitate the assignment. They give suggestions for grading the students' work and indicate an effective time allotment for the exercise.
