"The 'doing' of sociology adds an excitement to the material and emphasizes the scientific elements of the discipline. Exploring real relationships requires a strong focus on critical thinking about issues, rather than accepting at face value the 'expert' presentation in standard textbooks."— Richard Harris, UT, San Antonio
"I like the opportunity to have them (the students) work with real data."— Martin, Rice University
"I want undergraduate sociology students to learn about sociology as science. That means introducing them to patterned (not single instances) behavior, explanations for patterns, and research that tests explanations for the patterns."— Henry Walker, University of Arizona
