Abstract

The need of the student is to grasp the life of himself and of his fellows as a whole, and to develop a scheme of life in harmony with such an understanding. Teachers of sociology have a peculiar opportunity to afford this, especially in the more comprehensive sociological courses. Instructors will concentrate on thesocial situation as a whole, its internal relationship, its spatio-temporal patterns, its basic components or factors. They will present a situational rather than an aspectual analysis, beginning with the student's own situation. The subject matter of texts will center largely in the student's world but will attempt to expand it for an understanting of his larger social relation-ships. The introductory text will contain much case material; for the sake of interest appeal, dramatic features should be accentuated. Use of bibliographies, footnotes, section and sub-section headings, tables, etc., should be reduced to a minimum. Such texts should be used as a tool in cultivating sensitiveness to the world in which the student lives.
