This week is final examinations and concludes the semester. Overall I was satisfied with the Introduction to Political Science course, although there are a couple of things I wish I had done differently. First, I should have included more discussion of current events. This would have brought the relevance of the subjects we were studying to the forefront. Second, I should have set aside some time in the syllabus for revision of essays. Students learned how to read and write, but once they turned their essays in, they forgot about them and never revisited them. Setting aside time for revisions would be helpful in teaching them this habit.
