Audience, Purpose, and Civic Engagement: A Reassessment of Writing Instruction in Political Science
Anson, Ian G.
Journal of Political Science Education, v13 n4 p389-403 2017
In the present study I examine meaning-making as an integral aspect of successful writing assignments in political science. Results of a semester-long quasi-experimental pilot study show that meaning-making writing tasks help students in Introduction to American Politics courses become more politically engaged through the inculcation of civic skills.
