Discipline(s) or Field(s): Political Science & Public Administration
Authors: Steve McDougal, Jeremy Arney, Ray Block, and Jo Arney, University of Wisconsin-La Crosse
Submission Date: May 2012

Abstract:  We sought to develop a richer understanding of ideology. At the end of the lesson we hoped students would be able to describe the key values that contribute to an individual’s ideology and would be able to explain why no two individuals have the exact same ideology. We observed improvement in student understanding over the course of two semesters.
