Educational Philosophy: This instructor's philosophy is one of interactive exchange with students by presenting the course material in a way that is clearly understood by each student to the extent that they can see how this learning applies to their everyday lives. This will be based on lectures and on course material from the textbook from which the student will be tested anc expected to complete homework for each chapter. The instructor will also employ readings, videos, and internet sources for discussion.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Position Paper- Controversial Topic
The purpose of this critical thinking assignment is to examine both sides of a controversial issue, select a position, apply it to a multicultural context, and to apply the Park University General Education literacies: aesthetic, civic, critical, science, and values. Two of these literacies (critical and values) are perceived to cut across disciplines and departments, while the other three (aesthetic, civic, and scientific) literacies address major academic concerns. Students with these literacies should be able to succeed in communicating, computing and problem-solving, clarifying values, using the arts, functioning within social institutions, and using the sciences and technology.
