This chapter focuses on pedagogical frames and techniques that encourage student engagement and problematize the process-and-product model of government information. These strategies reflect four interconnected ideas, namely
• that government information is political,
• that access to government information is political,
• that government information has value both in scholarly contexts and in individuals’ daily lives, and
• that we can intervene in the production and dissemination of government information.
