Teaching Assistants (a.k.a. teaching aids) are generally students who have taken at least 12 hours of Sociology and assist a faculty member by, for example, conducting weekly discussion groups, helping with grading, preparing lecture materials, and/or other responsibilities. Students apply to be a TA by filling out a form and then contacting the instructor. They typically have already taken the course they will be TAing for. Once chosen as a TA, students register for Soc. 289, giving them 3 credits at the 200-level. In a few cases, students may be able to TA for pay instead of for credit. If interested, please contact Bev Cooper or Salli Griggs for a TA application. Permission of the instructor is necessary and an override required.
For spring 2014, courses likely to need Teaching Assistants are Soc. 001 (Mintz or Fox); Soc 019 (Khanna); Soc. 29 (Cowan); Soc 096A (Miller); Soc. 96B (Burke); Soc. 96C (Krymkowski); and Soc. 100 (Strickler or Danigelis).
