Class, What’s You Political Compass?

I will be teaching Intro to Public Policy in Spring/Summer at Wayne State (Detroit). I have designed a lecture in order to help explain why parties form in America, based on the students’ actual political compass. Basically, I assign a political compass test on Day 1. In the next class, students will get into groups according to their political compass. Students will then talk–in their faction–about creating public policy. After bringing the students’ stances to the floor, I will finally begin lecture.

If you use this lecture, please let me know how it went! Download –> Political Compass.

For more student-centered / hands-on learning “lectures,” please see the Teaching tab.

Just take the test:
