  • Learning to See Like a Medical Sociologist: Comparing One- Versus
           Two-Semester Fieldwork-Based Courses

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Nicole Lehpamer, Daniel Menchik
      Abstract: Teaching Sociology, Ahead of Print.
      Using observations from a medical sociology course offered in two formats, we compare how undergraduate premedical students learned to see sociologically after (1) completing a one-semester course in which theory in medical sociology and fieldwork were taught concurrently or (2) completing a two-semester course in which theory in medical sociology and fieldwork were taught in successive semesters. We developed a taxonomy of stages to capture students’ learning and measured their progress using video simulations that alternatively depicted scenarios in a more familiar setting (an academic hospital) and a less familiar one (a foreign cultural exchange). Students learned how to see in different ways: In the one-semester course, students came to see like medical sociologists, and in the two-semester course, students also came to see like sociologists more broadly. Educators interested in teaching students to “see more” outside of the health care realm may benefit from choosing the two-semester course option.

  • Impacts of Teaching Critical Race Theory and Applying Contact Theory
           Methods to Student’s Cross-Cultural Competency in Diversity Courses

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Julie Putnam Hart, Austin C. Kocher
      Abstract: Teaching Sociology, Ahead of Print.
      We examine the outcomes of three different teaching methods in courses where cultural competency is a course objective: (1) multiculturalism lecture only, (2) student research and reporting on other cultural groups plus multiculturalism lecture, and (3) cross-cultural conversation partners applying contact theory plus multiculturalism lecture. Lectures in courses 1 and 3 also include antiracist and critical race theories that directly challenge colorblind racism. The study measures both cultural competency and colorblind racism before and after courses over a semester on 181 students at a small midwestern university. Cross-cultural competency scores improved significantly in all three courses but were significantly higher in the course that included both content on critical race theory and contact theory methods. Colorblind racism fails to improve in courses without critical race theory. These findings have implications for improving cultural competency outcomes among undergraduates from a variety of majors.

  • Behind the Scenes: Teaching the Sociology of Tourism Abroad

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Lissette Aliaga-Linares, Troy Romero
      Abstract: Teaching Sociology, Ahead of Print.
      International travel has long been considered a key pedagogical strategy for global learning. Yet very little is known about whether study-abroad experiences increase students’ awareness of the impact of tourism as a global phenomenon. In this study, we assessed students’ learning through a content analysis of their journals and final essays from a short-term study-abroad course that used key concepts from the sociology of tourism to explore the impact of tourism in a developing country. Findings demonstrate how thinking sociologically about travel and tourism enabled students to look “behind the scenes,” fostered critical-thinking skills, helped in their self-assessment of ethnocentrism, and promoted a sense of global responsibility. We also discuss areas that merit further pedagogical attention, particularly when students struggle to unlearn preconceived ideas about poverty and inequality or resort to overgeneralizations when thinking comparatively.

  • The Sociological Imagination within Teaching Sociology: 1973–2020

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Nathan Palmer
      Abstract: Teaching Sociology, Ahead of Print.
      The sociological imagination is widely considered essential to sociology and sociological scholarship-of-teaching-and-learning research. Still, sociologists have struggled to agree on precisely what it is and how to measure its development effectively. A content analysis of every article published in Teaching Sociology was conducted examining where the sociological imagination appeared in the journal, where authors claimed to develop students’ sociological imagination, and the methodological sophistication of the evidence they provided to substantiate those claims. Analysis confirms the importance of the sociological imagination, appearing in a fourth of all published articles and nearly half of the articles published between 2010 and 2020. Just over a fourth of claims-making authors provided no evidence to validate their claims, and the frequency of making unsubstantiated claims persists even as the methodological rigor of the journal overall increased. Among the studies that provided evidence, however, the methodological sophistication appears to be increasing.

  • Abolition as Praxis and Virtual Community-Based Learning

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Theresa Rocha Beardall
      Abstract: Teaching Sociology, Ahead of Print.
      The distressing events of 2020 challenged the United States to reimagine how our social institutions can and should respond to demands for racial justice. These demands impacted higher education and debates arose about whether the classroom is an appropriate place for teaching abolition. I address this debate by introducing a senior-level elective course, Policing in the American City, to explore how abolitionist pedagogy can guide our teaching, learning, and doing sociology alongside our students. I begin with a brief grounding in abolition and then introduce virtual community-based learning (VCBL) as an ideal medium to facilitate abolitionist pedagogy in the classroom. Next, I provide preliminary insights into the use of VCBL to illustrate how it helped students develop critical skills, mobilize their learning, and benefit community partners. Throughout, I call on instructors to consider how online education, service learning, and public sociology can align with abolitionist practices to create communities of care in our classrooms and empower students to engage abolition as praxis beyond their college years.

  • So You’ve Provincialized the Canon. Now What'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Caleb Scoville, Heather Mooney
      Abstract: Teaching Sociology, Ahead of Print.
      Sociologists are engaging in a long-overdue reckoning about the place of the traditional canon in social theory courses and pedagogy. Instructors are revising their syllabi to include a more diverse set of authors while “provincializing” classics that have long been taught as universal. We confront the question of how to teach contested canonical works after an instructor has committed to this work. We argue that progressive reforms to theory syllabi can raise new problems associated with teaching “canonical” works and propose one way to address them with a flexible recipe designed to resolve tensions between pedagogical imperatives. An extended example from our experience teaching Durkheim’s The Elementary Forms of Religious Life is employed to illustrate our proposal. Our aim is to contribute to an ongoing disciplinary dialogue that will maintain theory’s central place in sociology’s identity while constantly asking what, and whom, it is for.

  • Engaging Students Using an Arts-Based Pedagogy: Teaching and Learning
           Sociological Theory through Film, Art, and Music

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Linda Hunter, Eleanor Frawley
      Abstract: Teaching Sociology, Ahead of Print.
      In this study we explore how incorporating an arts-based pedagogical approach, specifically, the use of film, art, and music, into a second-year sociological theory course enhances students’ overall learning experiences. We report on data collected from a survey given to students enrolled in this course in 2020. Findings reveal that employing this arts-based pedagogy helps students to sustain an interest in the course material, understand the theoretical course material, engage in a higher level of thinking/analysis, feel more confident in their abilities to write about theories covered in the course, apply theory in the real world, contextualize historical content, and enhance their memory of theories and concepts. Findings are also compared with data collected from a similar survey conducted in 2009, revealing that the overall favorable responses to arts-based resources have remained consistent over time and that this pedagogy remains an enduring approach that contributes to positive student learning experiences.

  • Burying the Lead: Systematic Reluctance in the Coverage of Stratification
           Systems in Introductory Sociology Textbooks

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: John D. Foster
      Abstract: Teaching Sociology, Ahead of Print.
      This article examines the presentation of caste systems of stratification in U.S. introductory sociology textbooks. First, the “caste versus class” debate from the 1930s and 1940s is summarized and its competing perspectives are evaluated. Second, after an in-depth analysis of introductory sociology textbooks presenting material on the subject, evidence is presented that (1) the majority of texts present a discussion on social stratification in the United States that is often misleading and inaccurate and (2) none of the textbooks go as far as to present the current system of stratification in U.S. society as caste. In fact, evidence suggests a kind of systematic reluctance exists among the authors to associate caste with U.S. society. The benefits of changing the way we as sociologists think about and teach social stratification, as well as the consequences for continuing the status quo, are addressed.

  • Promoting Empathy and Reducing Hopelessness Using Contemplative Practices

      Authors: Courtney B. Ross, Theresa Rocha Beardall
      Abstract: Teaching Sociology, Ahead of Print.
      Contemplative practices are becoming more common in educational environments for attending to whole-student learning, fostering empathy, and promoting social justice and socially just pedagogues. This conversation explores how holistic approaches facilitate and expand the parameters of sociological pedagogy to integrate humanist pedagogies and initiate emancipatory citizenship. By building a pedagogical bridge between sociology and contemplative practices educators can help inspire empathy and hopefulness among students as they navigate the challenging topics of injustice and collective trauma. We trace the rise of contemplative practices in the United States with a focus on the emergence of “contemplative sociology” from a variety of perspectives, including Buddhist sociology and sociological mindfulness. We then explore the utility of contemplative practices in the sociological classroom combining contemplation, embodied agency, and antioppression education for student learning. We offer two exercises to consider for developing the sociological imagination and increasing students’ capacity for critical thinking, stress management, and self-reflection.

  • Responding Sociologically: Using Attributional Processes to Promote
           Student Confidence and Sense of Mastery in Sociology Courses

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Sarah J. Hatteberg
      Abstract: Teaching Sociology, Ahead of Print.
      Student motivation, confidence, and perceived control are of key interest to sociology instructors seeking to develop pedagogical techniques that increase student engagement. However, attribution research suggests that strengthening these aspects of student learning can be challenging if students attribute academic outcomes to factors over which they have little control, as this can weaken students’ motivation and sense of mastery. In this study, I examine an “exam wrapper” survey and discussion exercise that draws upon attributional processes to contextualize learning as influenced by broader social forces. Student responses to this survey exercise detail the attributions students made for academic outcomes and suggest this activity may be effective at promoting student confidence, motivation, and sense of mastery. This exercise fosters a sociological understanding of individual attributions and academic achievement that empowers students to feel more in control of their learning within the structural and educational contexts in which learning occurs.

  • Teaching Social Theory as Cartography: Toward a Pedagogy of Radical
           Accessibility

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Michel Estefan, Josh Seim
      Abstract: Teaching Sociology, Ahead of Print.
      There has been a growing number of calls to improve theory instruction in sociology. These conversations have focused on what instructors should teach (with a renewed emphasis on racism and sexism) and whom to teach (with calls to diversify the reading list), but comparatively little attention has been placed on how social theory should be taught. Building on recent findings from the literature on reading comprehension and on a popular description of theories as maps, we suggest that teaching theory can be treated as a form of cartography, a student-centered method that advocates for radical accessibility. We describe three different ways students can use theory maps—as tourists, navigators, and mapmakers—each adapted for a different stage in the learning process. We believe that adding accessibility to current calls for critique and representation brings our conversations about how to reimagine theory courses full circle.

  • The Supervisor Effect: A Note on Teaching Field Methods

      Authors: Elisabet Dueholm Rasch, Gijs Cremers, Marc Simon Thomas, Bas Verschuuren
      Abstract: Teaching Sociology, Ahead of Print.
      In this article we reflect on our experiences as supervisors in a field methods course in order to explore how ethnographic research practices can be used as tools in the supervision of students that conduct field research for the first time and as such to provide insights about what constitutes “good supervision.” Our reflections follow the three main stages of fieldwork: preparing and designing research, doing fieldwork, and reporting on research, as the role of the supervisor and their relationship with students transforms accordingly. We describe how we use the parallels between “doing research” and “teaching how to do research” as tools for teaching field methods through learning by doing. We pay specific attention to three central elements of ethnographic practice: building rapport, social interaction (the “supervisor effect”), and reflexivity that we use in our supervision.

  • The Inequality Mirror: Using a Student Survey to Teach Social
           Stratification

      Authors: Jorge Sola, Celia Diaz-Catalán, Igor Sádaba, Eduardo Romanos, César Rendueles
      Abstract: Teaching Sociology, Ahead of Print.
      Social inequality is a central theme in sociology study plans (both in research and education), but it is often one of the most difficult topics to teach. This article presents an innovative student-centered strategy for teaching social inequality that uses a survey to collect data on students’ socioeconomic characteristics and perceptions of inequality. To stimulate reflection and discussion on the social mechanisms that reproduce inequality, this information is subsequently presented to them in conjunction with a comparative analysis to general population data. The exercise seeks to make social inequality less abstract for students by involving them in the research process and by using data relative to their own lives and families. Ultimately, the strategy boosts students’ sociological imagination and their capacity for critical thinking by encouraging them to see the connections between individual biographies and broader social forces.

  • Help Me See the “Magnificent” Side of Sociology: The Outcomes of a
           Community Action and Involvement Course Designed to Help Undergraduates
           View Themselves as Agentic

      Abstract: Teaching Sociology, Ahead of Print.
      The learning outcome, “Students will learn to engage with and impact society,” is common in curricular frameworks addressing undergraduate sociology education; however, it does not receive adequate coverage compared to other competencies. The lack of attention to this outcome coupled with the tendency to focus heavily on social problems may cause some students to leave sociology classes with increased cynicism and helplessness. This research therefore assesses an upper-level elective sociology course designed to challenge this proclivity by guiding students toward the recognition of their agency. Precourse and postcourse surveys (N = 47) are analyzed to uncover student attitudes regarding agency and social change. Results indicate the course prompted an increase in the students’ optimism and confidence in their ability to impact society. This type of course, both as an entity and in its transferable components, can provide support for students who want to learn how to engage with their world.

  • Mental Health in the College Classroom: Best Practices for Instructors

      Authors: Max E. Coleman

      Abstract: Teaching Sociology, Ahead of Print.
      Mental health has become a matter of growing concern on college campuses, and the coronavirus has only amplified these trends. Whether high rates of mental health issues were always present on college campuses but went undiagnosed or whether structural and cultural conditions have prompted a true rise in mental illness, the current prevalence of these issues remains troubling. Although counseling centers can play an important role in addressing these issues, instructors are often the first point of contact for students in need. Sociologists of mental health are in a position to offer insights for these instructors and to suggest avenues of response. Drawing on epidemiological evidence and buttressed by guidance from mental health practitioners who work in a college setting, I propose a set of “best practices” for instructors who wish to better support their students’ mental flourishing.
