This chapter provides advice on how to teach applied regression and multilevel models to students from a broad set of fields, especially the social sciences. These students typically want to fit and understand models beyond what they get from computer output. They tend to be highly motivated because they are trying to solve real problems in their applied fields. The course has little mathematics, and instead employs the computer to fit and simulate models. The chapter provides a step-by-step plan of the first two weeks of classroom activities in this applied regression course.

Keywords:   Applied regression, lesson plan, social science, teaching style, teaching statistics
