Personal Comments:
My teaching philosophy centers on the basic belief that students learn more through doing, than by simply listening. One of the great advantages of teaching politics is that students can learn through political participation. I find teaching politics tremendously rewarding because it allows me to help students not only develop an understanding of the basic values of American civic culture but also gain a sense of how to apply what they have learned to their own pursuit of the good life.
