orgtheory poll: the undergraduate social theory class
I’ve been the main undergraduate social theory teacher at Indiana since 2005. I’ve taught multiple sections every year that I’ve been in residence, until this year when we bundled everyone together into a lecture. Now that I’ve done it a bunch of times, both in seminar and large lecture format, I am now collecting my thoughts on the meaning of this course.
But first, what do you think should be the main goal of the course? And please, no namby pamby “these aren’t mutually exclusive, let’s all hold hands.” This is forced choice. Choose the most important goal of the undergraduate social theory course. I am also interested in why you chose it.
