    Teaching Research Methods provides instructors of criminal justice research methods courses with effective teaching tools to better engage students and support classroom success.

    The book begins with a discussion of the challenges implicit in teaching criminal justice research methods, namely the issue of student expectation and how the topic of research methods may seem disconnected from the broader study of criminal justice or policing as a whole. Later chapters provide practical advice for developing course learning objectives, formatting classes in a way that enhances student learning, and successfully engaging students in individual and group work to reinforce key concepts. Readers learn how to effectively incorporate peer-reviewed articles into courses and the benefits of teaching students American Psychological Association (APA) style. The text concludes with a chapter dedicated to student assessment, which discusses the importance of testing and the various forms of assessment that can be used within a curriculum.

    Featuring valuable insight and practical advice, Teaching Research Methods is designed to help instructors of research methods courses create a classroom environment that is engaging and effective for their students.
