Happy Friday everyone! We here at TSP are gearing up for the start of a new semester and are excited about welcoming some new grad board members, starting some new projects, and continuing to report on the best in sociological research. To kick off the school year, in addition to linking to our most recent posts, this week we highlight some of the blogs at TSP that are great resources for teachers and students alike.
If you are teaching classes this fall, or prepping a class for the near future, check out the wide variety of syllabi, activities, and videos at our Teaching TSP blog. We have great posts on how to use Discoveries to teach methods, how to use TROTs to show students how to summarize research, and how to use social science to get students to reflect on evidence used in the media.
Looking for short and interesting summaries of recent research articles by sociologists? Look no further than our Discoveries blog! We cover two to four articles a month and pull from dozens of journals. Some of our recent summaries include how bilingual benefits vary by gender, how social media influences anti-fracking movements, and how intelligence does not necessarily curb racism.
