Each author illustrates how - through their unique teaching philosophies and practices - they seek to enhance students\' experiences and promote their critical thinking, learning and development. The respective chapters provide conceptual arguments, personal insights and practical examples from a broad range of classrooms, demonstrating various ways in which students\' sociological imagination can be brought to life. As such, the book is both practical and theoretical, and is primarily aimed at educators working in both higher and further education institutions who wish to develop their understanding of classroom pedagogy as well as gain practical ideas for teaching and learning in the social sciences.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"Intro; Dedication; Foreword 1; Foreword 2; Preface; Acknowledgements; Introduction: Teaching in Turbulent Times; Drawing on the Sociological Imagination; Becoming \u00E2#x80;#x98;Genuinely Student-Centred\u00E2#x80;#x99;; Christopher\u00E2#x80;#x99;s Account: \u00E2#x80;#x98;Yes, but What Are YOU Going to Do?\u00E2#x80;#x99;; Ursula\u00E2#x80;#x99;s Account: \u00E2#x80;#x98;My Student-Centred World Shifted on Its Axis\u00E2#x80;#x99;; Alex\u00E2#x80;#x99;s Account: Questioning the Centrality of My Own Knowledge; Overview of Chapters; References; Abbreviations; Contents; Notes on Contributors; 1 Class Talk: Discussing Social Class with English Undergraduates and Sixth-Formers; Introduction.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:editor<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/4791094723#Person\/edgington_ursula<\/a>> ; # Ursula Edgington<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:editor<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/4791094723#Person\/matthews_christopher_r<\/a>> ; # Christopher R.
