Even though the audience is listed as K-12 level, I would use this in my undergraduate GOVT 101 class. The students would like the interactive parts of the PowerPoint and the links work (and based on where they are linked to should withstand changes).

I loved this StAIR.  I will actually use it in one of my civics classes.  Its objectives are clearly defined at the beginning of the StAIR and achieves those objectives very well.  I also love how it ties in the School House Rock video.  All in all, it is a great StAIR.
