In the Trenches
Teaching and Learning Sociology
An extensive guidebook on teaching sociology, written by two recent recipients of the American Sociological Association Distinguished Contributions to Teaching Award.
In the Trenches explains the process of becoming a better teacher, from tips on writing a syllabus to the first day of class to assessment. The authors focus on teaching techniques based on extensive research and decades of classroom experience, guiding readers through significant changes in pedagogy and technology. It includes suggested exercises, online resources, and new ways to connect with students.
In the Trenches is the perfect resource for both new teachers who don’t know where to begin and experienced professors looking to improve their students’ experiences and learning abilities in the classroom.
