Government and Politics: Comparative (posc 1227)
It is exciting to facilitate a four-day workshop that focuses solely on Comparative Government. One-day workshops tend to combine US and Comparative and CompGov teachers never get equal time. Here's our chance!
A sampling of workshop goals:
- Teachers who are new to CompGov will get a chance to build a syllabus & select a textbook.
- Teachers who are experienced in CompGov will have a chance to refine their curriculum and learn some new tricks.
- Identify essential themes for the countries & EU.
- Discover how to fit in 6 countries worth of content into your term or semester.
- Receive lessons that you can plug-in directly into your curriculum.
- Develop new materials, projects, and presentations for your class next year.
