Educational Philosophy: The facilitator’s educational philosophy is one of interactiveness based on lectures, readings, quizzes, dialogues, examinations, internet, videos, web sites and writings. The facilitator will engage each learner in what is referred to as disputatious learning to encourage the lively exploration of ideas, issues and contradictions.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Class Assessment: Through a combination of examinations, written presentations and classroom discussions, student learning and knowledge concerning the topic of criminal justice and community relationships will be assessed. Students should make every effort to attend each class so that their opinions and knowledge of the assigned topic can be observed. The written assignment for the course will constitute 25% of the overall student grade and will be comprised of student research into three existing programs which demonstrate an effective example of the criminal justice system and community relationship in dealing with and suppressing crime. The assignment should compare and contrast programs with traditional efforts aimed at crime suppression; examining each for its individual effectiveness and adherence to the principles and guidelines identified through the classsroom discussion and study. The research should include and analysis of the organization structure of the criminal justice entity ( i.e., community courts, police departments, probations offices, juvenile courts), discuss their adherence to the traditional structures, and detail what organization changes, if any, were implemented in order to establish an effective criminal justice and community relationship. An assessment of community attitudes towards each program should be included, where possible. All presentations will be due during the February 18th class meeting. Thoroughness and attention to detail will be evaluated in each assignment.
Late Submission of Course Materials:
Late submission of any assigned materials, without valid reason for the delay, will result in an initial letter grade reduction. The instructor is the sole source for determining the validity of the excuse for late submission.
