Spring 2018

Tomorrow begins a new semester at Southern Methodists University and I’m so excited to be teaching “The President in the Early Republic.” The course will examine the development of the executive branch under the first three presidents, as well as the relationship between the president and Congress, the Supreme Court, and the public. I am experimenting with a few new assignments and I’m eager to see how the students respond. I will share the results – whether they be successes or failures – and how I plan to tweak the course for the future. See the syllabus below.
