Carleton will be creating a teaching and service oriented web page for the Tennessee Political Science Association (TPSA). The web page will provide a mechanism for faculty at MTSU and other institutions around the state to organize political information on the Internet for classroom projects, easily share teaching materials, and for outreach to civics and government teachers and students in Tennessee high schools.

Dr. David Carleton was awarded an Instructional Technologies Development Grant for the summer of 1998. This grant allowed him to create a teaching and service oriented web page for the http://www.mtsu.edu/~polsci/tpsa/tennessee.htm Tennessee State Political Science Association.
