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.
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
There will be two tests and two quizzes as noted below and students are required to complete homework as assigned. Two debates/topic of discussions will be held on controversial issues discussing the Pro/Con sides of each issue.
Late Submission of Course Materials:
Position paper is expected to be turned in on time. With each day of lateness the point value of the paper will decrease 3 pts from earned grade.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Students are expected to attend each class as scheduled. Use of cell phones cannot be permitted in class. Each student's active participation is heavily encouraged and graded. Classroom discussion is expected but also being mindful of the need to sustain mutual courtesy and respected for opinions and feelings at all times. If a student misses class due to TDY, deployment, or being "in the field" it's the student's responsibility to inform the instructor of the projected absence. It is also the student's responsibility to obtain the material covered and discussed in class.
Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life.
