Iowa Caucuses: Prof David Redlawsk Guest Lecture, via skype

Students read and wrote papers about Professor David Redlawsk's book about the Iowa Caucuses.

Redlawsk, Tolbert, and Donovan. Why Iowa? How Caucuses and Sequential Process Elections Improve the Presidential Nominating Process. University of Chicago Press, 2010.

Students left with a better understanding of the history of the Iowa Caucuses, how the Iowa Cuacuses actually work (and the differences between Republican and Democratic party rules), and the impact of the Caucuses on the presidential nominating process

Skyping in experts from around the country (and around the world)into my classroom is my new favorite teaching tool.
