Its aims are a bit paradoxical: I want my students to engage in a rather sophisticated concept (political efficacy) through a very simple challenge. This is certainly the most open-ended challenge I have ever presented to a class. But each time I do this (Is this my eleventh CBL?), I seem to let go of the reigns and trust the process a little more.
In a couple of weeks I'll share my students first responses and reactions. Wish us luck!
