Based on the premise that when students do something instead of simply reading about it, they understand it better, this book comprises 29 hands-on, active learning activities for use in research methods courses in the social sciences.

The activities were created by instructors throughout the country and demonstrated to be effective in their classrooms. A variety of activities is included: group activities, solo activities, some that take a lot of time and others that take less time. Each one of them is directly related to a concept of research methods and aims to help students become better researchers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The key strength is the non formal nature of the dialogue, setting a tone of comfort around a subject that typically creates stress for students. Secondly, students get to test their learning in a non-threatening way using the activities." -- Darnell J. Bradley, Ed.D.
"It is organized around an active, student-centered style of learning. It makes use of topics that are relevant to students' lives. It makes abstract and quantitative aspects of methods concrete and approachable." -- Jason Lee Crockett
