Most textbooks and other teaching resources approach the teaching and learning of sociological theory from the perspective of scientific argumentation. There is an alternative approach, which is based on using creative writing tools—such as poetry and prose—to learn theory. This essay provides a discussion of the two main modalities of creative theory assignments. It also offers considerations on learning goals and assessment techniques for such assignments.
