Team-Teaching an Interactive and Community-Based Methods Course: A Case Study.
Linantud, John
This paper addresses nontraditional methods and issues involved in presenting a productive undergraduate political science course that provides the knowledge, skills, and abilities to aid good citizenship and a variety of career choices. This educators incorporated team teaching, cross training, original research, and small group work, and invited local organizations to supply investigative topics to the class. Despite problems associated with these issues, methods teachers should consider carefully adopting several of the features of this course. Cross training would require teachers to explore techniques associated more with comparative politics and international relations, and both cross training and original research would necessitate a class separate from statistics. Team teaching and small group work may also be unavoidable. As long as the rules and expectations are recognized and enforced among all participants, team teaching, small group work, and even community outreach can succeed. Appended are instructor evaluations, course syllabi, and additional information. (Author/BT)
