Didactica Sociologiei - specificitatea unei ştiinţe sociale predate
The didactics of sociology - the specificity of taught social science
*Universitatea Ecologică din Bucureşti
Abstract: This article presents the specificity of Sociology in high school and college. As a social science, Sociology tries to teach science, highlighting its scientific character, but also teaches content and methodology, offering to pupils and students accustomed with common sense, a policy- and ideology-based perspective over reality, through the mass-media. For the sociology teacher, anchored in the reality of social life, his mission is to find both the methods, techniques and didactical projecting procedures, teaching procedures, and evaluating the abilities gained for better understanding and interpreting of the social life and reducing the dissonance between what it is and what it should be.
Keywords: sociological competence, sociology teacher, the methodology of social research, sociology methodic.
Cuvinte cheie: competență sociologică, profesor de sociologie, metodologia cercetării sociologice, sociologie metodică.
