Everyday Theory introduces students to theory and how it applies to everyday life. By making students aware of their role as theorists in their own right, the authors reduce students' anxiety level.Everday Theory lends itself to all sorts of approaches, for it provides a thematic table of contents as well as an alternative table of contents that would allow teachers to teach theory in very innovative ways as well as very traditional (by schools of thought, methodology, and chronology, for example). Those interested in an introduction to critical theory.
