Additional Book Details

Featuring a unique pedagogical framework, Social Research Methods: Sociology in Action provides all the elements required to create an active learning experience for this course. Modeled after the other volumes in SAGE′s "Sociology in Action" series, this innovative new text combines hands-on work, application, and learning-by-example. It features a diverse group of expert contributing authors who also practice active learning in their own classrooms.

Each chapter discusses one aspect of conducting quantitative or qualitative research and pairs that foundational coverage with carefully-developed learning activities and thought-provoking questions that prompt students to practice and apply their new research skills. The comprehensive Activity Guide that accompanies the text will help you carry out and assess the activities that best engage your students, fit the mode of instruction you choose, and meet your course goals.

In the spirit of the "Sociology in Action" theme, the text concludes with two unique chapters on how social researchers interact with their surrounding communities and help bring about social change and social justice.

This title is accompanied by a complete teaching and learning package.
