In this brief text, two leaders of the Teaching Sociology movement encourage students√ development of their sociological imaginations through role-taking. Assuming the role of a child living in poverty in India or of a member of an African tribe, students learn to re-envision their global society. An innovative, integrated framework provides core sociological concepts, while features such as Contributing to Our Social World enable students to ŰdoŲ public sociology. Our Social World: Condensed Version presents the perspective of students living in the larger global world.
