DAYTON, OHIO: Former Ohio Gov. Bob Taft is making his teaching debut this fall with a legislative politics course at the University of Dayton.
The school said Monday that Taft has been at the university since 2007, when he became a distinguished research associate in education and allied professions.
Republican Taft says he has lectured on political topics, but this marks his first time leading a course. He says class presentations and grading are a ''new adventure.''
Senior political science major Tyeshia Garrettson says the course gives students access to members of Congress as well as a teacher with real-world experience.
Among other assignments, students are studying congressional races by following the fall campaigns.
