    Dr. Ryan Daugherty is an AP CoGoPo Reader and a professor of political science at Butler University. 
    His students read: 
    Most of the dense Orvis and Drogus textbook that podcast alum Karen Waples used as a basis for her AP CoGoPo textbook. Ziblatt and Levitsky's How Democracies Die. Too many articles to list!He recommends On Populist Reason by Ernesto Laclau. 
    Yours truly heartily recommended Ziblatt and Levitsky's upcoming release, Saving Democracy (coming this fall).

    Reflecting with the CoGoPo Class of 2023

    Reflecting with the CoGoPo Class of 2023

    A couple days after the AP CoGoPo exam and a couple weeks before graduation, I sat down with my students to reflect on GoGoPo. We explored the most valuable lessons they learned, the concepts they struggled with, and the countries they were most and least interested in. We wrapped with some gentle advice for students new to CoGoPo.
