Making the move to online

Reading Time: 1 minuteAuthor: Emily Farris Texas Christian University
These are some suggestions to help you move your Introduction to American Politics class online.
Here’s how I moved my class online. I have modified and dropped some assignments. I dropped a lecture (sorry media folks …!).). I extend a lot grace to myself, students, and encourage everyone else to do the same.
I have never taught online, and I don’t like the idea of narrating my PowerPoints. I will, but I also love videos. There are many good ones. Here are a few:
Crash Course U.S. Government & Politics series
TED-ed Government Declassified
Above the Noise: Civics and Elections
PBS Founding Principles
