There is a growing body of research that points to the power of stories in helping students learn and remember core content.
Please join SAGE / CQ Press author and award-winning professor Scott Abernathy (University of Minnesota) for a discussion on effective ways to use the power of stories to teach students the key concepts of American Government.
The discussion will address teaching strategies with a focus on:
- Engaging students by introducing a wide range of stories into your teaching
- Integrating the diversity of Americans’ lived experiences into your course
- Using stories to highlight how the American political system is the product of strategies, calculations, and miscalculations of countless individuals
Most of the hour-long session will be facilitated as a “Town Hall” (a question-and-answer format), and opportunities to submit questions will be offered to you upon registration and throughout the session.
