Van Belle delivers the core concepts and real-world political examples you'd expect from an introductory book, just in a way that students will actually have fun reading and will retain after the exam. The textbook stuff is here too-chapter summaries, bolded key terms, and discussion questions.
A student companion website features chapter summaries, study questions, interactive flashcards, multiple choice quizzes, and annotated web links.
An appendix of fiction resources is included in the book, but is augmented for instructors to include discussion and essay questions to help kick off discussion groups and writing assignments focused on particular movies and books. There is also a test bank that will help instructors create exams using multiple-choice and short-answer questions, testing on all of the major political science concepts in the book. PowerPoint lecture slides round out this impressive package of resources.
