This workshop is appropriate for teachers of all grades who want a crash course on electoral politics at the national & state level. All attendees will receive a packet of resources for use in their classrooms.

Dr. Christopher Malone is Associate Professor of Political Science and Director of the Pforzheimer Honors College at Pace University. He teaches courses in American Politics and Political Theory. From 2005-2009 Malone was also the founding Director of American Studies Program at Pace. Dr. Malone is a nationally recognized teacher of civic engagement and public values. During the 2000 presidential campaign, he helped produce and appeared in the PBS show for teens In the Mix, teaching young voters about analyzing campaign ads. In January 2004 Malone was identified by The Washington Post as one of the nation's most innovative professors. Each semester Dr. Malone co-teaches a course with C-SPAN’s Executive Producer Steve Scully on American politics and the media that airs every Friday on the C-SPAN television networks and on Saturday on its XM satellite channel. Malone’s academic research primarily focuses on racial conflict in American history, and democracy and citizenship. He has authored many articles on the subject and his first book Between Freedom and Bondage: Race, Party and Voting Rights in the Antebellum North was published by Routledge Press in 2008.
