Teaching Practical Policy Analysis
Students can learn to grapple with real political problems by doing policy analysis, studies designed to produce well-supported recommendations for action dealing with particular problems. Instead of asking what is being done about particular issues, they could ask what should be done. These questions could be examined in a systematic and analytic way, in a variety of formats. Engagement in political studies of this kind can develop the student's skill at analyzing and managing real political problems, it can enhance his sense of efficacy, and it can provide him with a firmer grasp of political concepts and information than would be obtained with traditional teaching methods.
