Teaching research methods through secondary analysis

Author: Ada W. Finifter


After considering some problems in more traditional ways of teaching research methods, this paper discusses how archived data may be used in teaching graduate level courses in this subject in political science and sociology. The discussion is based on my experience, over the last four years, in teaching a graduate course in research methods in political science through secondary analysis.
