Educational Philosophy: Instructor Newman's educational philosophy is based on using a variety of methods in learning, focusing on the interactive. Lectures, readings, quizzes, group work, class discussion, examinations, writing, and use of the Internet are significant components of this learning process. Students will be required to analyze, criticize, and synthesize information learned. Students are encouraged to participate in the lively exploration of ideas, issues, and contradictions.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
The test examines each learning outcome with 20 questions. Eighteen multiple-choice questions will be based upon a distribution of critical thinking concepts applied to a learning outcome. Two questions will examine a communication/writing component. Each question will be weighted as 5 points.

Late Submission of Course Materials:
Instructor is not responsible for contacting absent students or providing items from missed classes.
2. Be prepared for class. This means that you have read the assigned readings and are prepared to discuss them. Quizzes may be given at the beginning of class. Tardy arrival or early departure may result in missing a quiz. For late arrivals or early departures, no makeup quizzes will be given unless the student produces a written excuse signed by a doctor (with the doctor's registration number) in the case of illness, or a tow bill from a tow company in the case of car problems. A written excuse from the campus nurse is acceptable. The same requirement applies to illness of children. Instructor understands there may be conflicts, but it is the student's responsibility to notify instructor of absences prior to class.
3. This course will consist of class discussion, small group discussion, group work, and lecture. You are expected to take part in the discussions and group work. Your in-class participation is evident in your grades through the oral presentations, chapter discussions, etc. Also, assigned reading will not always be reviewed in class, but quizzes will be from both assigned readings and class discussions.
4. Computers make writing and revising much easier and more productive. Students must recognize though that technology can also cause problems. Printers run out of ink and hard drive crash. Students must be responsible for planning ahead and meeting deadlines in spite of technology. Be sure to save copies of your work to disk, hard drive, and print out paper copies for backup purposes.
5. No late assignments are accepted for any reason without the written excuses designated in #2. Excused absences producing late assignments received more than 1 week from due date are given a 0.
6. Attendance is taken at the beginning and end of class. You must be present at both to receive the participation points in full for the evening along with active participation in class discussions.
7. Extra credit may be given equally to all students at the discretion of the instructor. Do not count on extra credit for your grade.
