Teaching is hard. When I first started teaching political science, this fact took me by surprise. I had always found learning to be relatively easy, and it hadn’t occurred to me that teaching would require an “approach,” or a “philosophy.” But, over time, I realized that I needed to focus on specific ways that I can help students connect with and digest the key facts, concepts, and controversies in law, politics, and data analysis.
