Educational Philosophy: The degree of concentration, material covered and specific methodology to be utilized in each area will be determined by the amount of classroom time available. Methods used to achieve these learning objectives will include lecture, reports, self-study, and most importantly, class discussion and student participation. All methods of teaching are designed to transfer new material by clarifying and emphasizing subject areas presented in the text. The lecture relies on the fact that you have read the assigned material and have completed any assignment relating to it prior to class meetings.

Link to Class RubricClass Assessment: In addition to the take home Mid-term and in class Final Examinations, students are required to prepare a Group Project. It is recommended but not mandatory to select a topic that will directly relate to the chapters we will be reviewing during the course. Research or other materials previously used for course credit cannot be used for this course. This effort must be original for this particular course. The subject of your group project must be chosen no later than week three of the semester to ensure time enough to complete the project as well as time to grade it. The Written Group Project should be 10 pages, double-spaced, grammatically correct (not including cover sheet, references, or attachments). Additionally, the group will give a Powerpoint presentation in class on the project.
The American Psychological Association (APA) publication style is required. Your references should be noted at the end of the paper. ALL PAPERS WILL BE DUE BY WEEK #7 (NO EXCEPTIONS). The Final Exam will be week # 8. Students are encouraged to use the internet which offers easy access to text, graphics and other multi-media resources.
Each student will present to the class one 3 page Article Review. The article review can be on any subject in the book or related to the topics. It will not have anything to do with the Group Project. It will be in the following format.
Article Overview – Tell me about your article
Agree/Disagree/Why – What is your position on the article and why
How it relates to the text – Explain which chapter(s) your article relates to and why.
You must have the article you used stapled to your written review.

Taking notes on the reading would also be to the student's benefit. The student must be prepared to answer questions and solve problems in class.
