How (and What) Political Theorists Teach: Results of a National Survey
Moore, Matthew J.
Journal of Political Science Education, v7 n1 p95-128 2011
The article reports the results of a 2008 national survey of political theorists concerning what and how they teach. The results are based on 1,086 responses from professors at accredited, four-year colleges and universities in the United States. The responses include information about which thinkers are currently being taught, the status of non-Western political thought in political theory education, the relative degrees of implementation of various teaching methodologies, demographic information about the respondents, information about the kinds of texts theorists use to teach, and finally a ranking of undergraduate programs in terms of their strength in theory. (Contains 11 tables and 28 notes.)
