Abstract

While the field of political science has experienced pedagogical advancement through the usage of media, methods for teaching political theory utilizing media yet remain impoverished. The incorporation of films into political science classes to illustrate class topics has become common practice among instructors. But to date it has remained unclear just how it can be incorporated effectively into teaching political theory.

Keywords: teaching political theory
