    Teaching Criminological Theory is designed to help novice instructors of criminological theory courses become the best and most effective teachers possible. This comprehensive guide provides insight, information, examples, anecdotes, and supplemental materials to help instructors effectively develop their ability to competently and efficiently teach criminological theory to their students.

    Over the course of seven chapters, new theory instructors will learn how to construct an effective syllabus, make a positive impression on the first day of class, apply tried and true teaching methods to criminological theory instruction, engage students in new ways, and use student evaluations to continue to improve their course. The text also discusses the common challenges in teaching criminological theory, as well as the myriad opportunities that can make teaching the subject especially gratifying.

    Boasting accessible and highly applicable content, Teaching Criminological Theory is an ideal text for instructors who are new to teaching criminological theory courses.
