Data-Driven Learning Guides are a collection of instructional exercises that can be used to enhance teaching of core concepts in the social sciences. This learning guide investigates differences in the stability of attitudes (i.e. consistency in a single attitude over time) about short and long term political issues. Short term issues are issues that have been important to politics for a relatively short period of time, while long term issues are those that have been central to politics and campaigns for years or decades. Research questions that can be explored using this learning guide include: how attitudinal stability on short term issues compares to attitudinal stability on long term issues, what factors may contribute to attitudinal stability, and what types of issues are particularly stable and what types are less stable. Correlation coefficients, comparisons of correlations, and T-statistics are used in the analyses.
