This course is co-taught by Mariatte Denman, Associate Director of the Center on Teaching and Learning.

Preparing an analytic paper is an alternative for those who do not want to prepare a syllabus module. The course is open not only to POLS students who expect to work in higher education, but also to students interested in K-12 education, and they may develop a teaching module for use in those schools.
