My educational philosophy is to act as a facilitator, encouraging the student to experience the materials presented in class through lectures, discussions, written work and tests; to encourage the student to reflect and exanpand on what s/he found out and then to teach the student to apply that knowledge.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
Late Submission of Course Materials: This is only an 8-week class. Therefore, handing in late papers and assignments is ill-advised. In-class assignments and quizzes are done in class and cannot be turned in late. The final paper will be due during the final class period. If a student cannot be there that class period, the paper must be turned in via e-mail that day. However, points will be deducted for not presenting the paper to the class. Any other assignments or tests taken after the due date, will automatically be deducted one letter grade. Tests MAY NOT be taken any time other than the time and date scheduled unless prior permission is given by the instructor.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Regular breaks during the class period will be given by the instructor. No electronic devices should be on or in use during class meetings. That includes telephones, games, pagers and laptop computers. That also means no texting.

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.

Plagiarism:Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing.

Disability Guidelines:Park University is committed to meeting the needs of all students that meet the criteria for special assistance. These guidelines are designed to supply directions to students concerning the information necessary to accomplish this goal. It is Park University's policy to comply fully with federal and state law, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, regarding students with disabilities. In the case of any inconsistency between these guidelines and federal and/or state law, the provisions of the law will apply. Additional information concerning Park University's policies and procedures related to disability can be found on the Park University web page: http://www.park.edu/disability .
Additional Information:The Final Research Paper which is 20 percent of the final grade will constitute the Core Assessment. This written assignment will require the student to apply the four departmental Learning Outcomes to a public policy issue.
