"Our symposium aimed to workshop an Introduction to American Government course allowing students to see politics as something that requires their active participation."
Casey Dominguez (San Diego University) and Liz Norell (Chattanooga State Community College), symposium co-facilitators
Fifteen political science educators gathered March 2022 for the virtual symposium "Teaching Introduction to American Politics." Together these teacher-scholars presented teaching practices, reviewed the state of the discipline, workshopped their materials, and created new artifacts. Below the participants have shared short blogs, example syllabi, best practices, active learning ideas, civic engagement tools, and more. APSA thanks our symposium co-leaders and participants for their collegiality and contributions.
