Dear Reader, In today's climate of intense political polarization, students need guidance on how to effectively communicate their ideas, think critically about what they hear and see around them, and respectfully listen to someone else's opinions. While it is not always easy to discuss controversial topics in the classroom, especially when for many students politics have become deeply personal, it is important that today's educators recognize the opportunities for engagement and learning (of lifelong skills) in these discussions. In this issue of CQ Press Connections, we focus on strategies to help you create opportunities for powerful discussions in your classroom—discussions that lead to effective political discourse, not political division. A few of the most respected scholars in their fields and best-selling CQ Press authors share insights on how to boost positive political discussion in your classroom, explore how recent events are shaping student views about the Supreme Court, discuss strategies for teaching students how to responsibly consume information, and share how political trends have made Texas the nation's bellwether. You will also learn about digital tools that make learning easier and more meaningful, while saving you time. All because we know teaching isn't easy, and we are here to help. We invite you to explore CQ Press Connections comprised of these compelling feature stories and our most recent and best-selling offerings. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or comments. If you need assistance selecting a textbook for an upcoming course, Customer Care is also available at or at 1-800-818-SAGE (7243). Sincerely, HERE WHEN YOU NEED US Lauren Schultz Senior Acquisitions Editor Scott Greenan Acquisitions Editor Erica DeLuca Executive Marketing Manager Jennifer Jones Marketing Manager 2
