Teaching Introduction to American Politics

"Our symposium workshopped an Introduction to American Government course allowing students to see politics as something that requires their active participation."
 Casey Dominguez (San Diego University) and Elizabeth Norell (Chattanooga State Community College), symposium co-facilitators

a teaching & learning special collection

In March 2022 APSAs' Teaching & Learning program brought 15 political science educators together to workshop the American Government and Politics undergraduate course. Across three days these scholar-educators presented teaching resources, discussed the state-of-the discipline, workshopped APSA Educate, and collaborated in small groups. Their original materials are showcased next to related APSA resources in this special Educate collection. APSA's Teaching & Learning thanks all our symposium participants for their contributions.

Please browse, use, and, if inspired, contribute your own materials.
