Teaching U.S. Politics in Comparative Perspective  
	Richard N. Engstrom, Georgia State University

Introduction to American Politics classes would benefit from the use 
of examples from non-U.S. countries.  These examples provide a contrast 
to the U.S. material, and create a learning environment in which students 
more thoroughly consider, and therefore better retain, the information.  
Research outlining the benefits of using cognitive conflict tasks is 
outlined, and specific examples applicable to American Government classes 
are offered.
