Sociology Through Active Learning: Student Exercises

“A great source for kinesthetic learning activities. I've used the book for designing my course for multiple learning styles.”

—Megan Thiele, University of California, Irvine

This student workbook is designed to allow you to easily integrate multiple active learning exercises into your Introduction to Sociology courses. Many teachers want to use “active learning” in their class, but don't have the materials commensurate with that pedagogy. These 51 active learning exercises have been carefully selected from a nationwide search of the best class-tested active learning material available in sociology. Affordably priced, this workbook provides the best that sociology has to offer!

Key and New Features

Accompanied by High-Quality Ancillaries!

Instructor Resources on CD provide detailed information on using, grading, and adapting the exercises. In addition the CD also includes commentary from the contributing authors explaining their experiences with the exercises, including how they promote specific learning goals and how current instructions to students facilitate the assignment. This CD-ROM features new components to the summary chart for instructors that indicate which assignments have web components, which have global aspects, and other criteria to help professors select the most useful exercises for their teaching needs.
