Compiling classroom-tested exercises for use in courses related to world affairs, it guides instructors through the steps of active learning and offers issues-based modules as templates for classroom instruction. Each module provides background information about issues and activities, step-by-step instructions, photocopy-ready exercises for students, and a post-exercise debriefing with discussion questions.
