Brooks, D. Christopher – Journal of Political Science Education, 2005
In addition to exposing students to basic concepts, theories, and ideas, teachers of comparative politics often claim to foster and promote values of tolerance and cultural sensitivity through exposure to the histories, cultures, and societies of cases from around the world.

Auger, Vincent A.; Overby, L. Marvin – Journal of Political Science Education, 2005

Schmidt, Steffen – Journal of Political Science Education, 2005
Although Terminal C at Logan airport does not look like a classroom, for about fifty minutes on this author's way back from Boston it was for him.
