PREFACE
New Format

The Edwards Instructor's Resource Manual is delivered in a format created with direct
feedback from teachers. We spoke with a range of instructors--from those who have
been teaching only a couple of semesters, to those who have been teaching for many
years. Most of the feedback involved accessibility and ease of use. With these concerns in
mind we asked a number of instructors what the ideal instructor's manual would be like,
and came up with the following:

Access to the "best of" materials

Pearson Education publishes a number of introductory American Government texts, and
the instructors we spoke with recommended that we review all of our introductory
American Government instructor's manuals, pull the best lecture, classroom activities
and assignments found in each and use these resources in all of our instructor's manuals
to ensure that each Pearson introductory text offers instructors the "best of" experience.

Structure your course

In addition to providing the best instructor resources we have to offer, this manual can
also help you to structure your course. The IM is organized in the order that you should
assign the content, and works in conjunction with the other supplemental resources for
the text (available on the IRC):

       Chapter Overview
       This book-specific content lists the Learning Objectives that will guide your
       teaching, as well as a Chapter Summary that outlines the main points of each
       chapter.

       Student Assignments  Pre-Lecture
       This section lists the activities that a student should complete before you begin
       your lecture, such as the assigned reading and the Reading Comprehension quiz in
       the Test Bank (ISBN: 0205043321).

       Lecture Resources
       This section includes thumbnails of the PowerPoint slides developed for the book
       (ISBN: 0205059511), alongside notes for each slide. This overview can help you
       prepare what you want to use in lecture, or it can be lectured from alone if you
       don't use PPTs. In addition to this Lecture Outline, this section also provides
       additional lecture suggestions that you can use to supplement your presentation,
       organized by Learning Objective.

       Student Assignments Post-Lecture
       This section includes the bulk of material, used for both formative and summative
       assessment, including Class Discussion, Class Activities, and Research
       Assignments, also organized by Learning Objective.

       Quantitative Assessment
       Once you've finished your lesson, this section directs you to the Test Bank
       (ISBN: 0205043321) so you can test your students' comprehension of the
       material.

       Resources for Further Study
       Still want more ideas? This section provides background materials in the form of
       Books, Articles, Media, and Websites for you to supplement your lesson.

Easy Navigation

We've provided a linked Table of Contents in each chapter so that you can easily jump to
the section you'd like. We've also placed links at the end of each section to bring you
back to the TOC for easy navigation.

Acknowledgements

We'd like to thank the following instructors for their hard work reviewing and editing the
wealth of American Government instructor content to identify the "best of" resources:

       Maryann Zihala, Ozarks Technical Community College
       Brian Dille, Mesa Community College
       Reed Welch, West Texas A&M University

We hope this resource makes teaching your course a lot easier and promotes greater
success among your students. We welcome any and all feedback.
