At the University of Arkansas Little Rock, I teach Introduction to Political Science, International Relations, and American Foreign Policy, and I teach senior seminars on Religion and International Relations, The War on Terror, and Religion and Electoral Politics.
I have published research in the Journal of Political Science Education (Volume 7, Issue 4, 2011) on using simple simulations in the classroom. I am currently working on a project on the effects of using political satire to teach Introduction to Political Science. I presented some initial results at the American Political Science Association’s Annual Meeting in September 2011 and have begun compiling satirical teaching resources in the Satirical Resource Repository. If you have satirical resources you use in your teaching, please send me a link and a short description of the concept each resource illustrates and I will be happy to add them to the Repository.
