Educational Philosophy: The instructor's educational philosophy is one of critical analytical thinking based on lectures, readings, dialogues, examinations, and writings. The Instructor will engage each learner in the process of critical thinking whereby all information is critically examined to allow the learner to conduct a logical analysis in arriving at conclusions about the validity and value of the information.
Instructor Learning Outcomes

Late Submission of Course Materials: Assignments should be turned in on or before the due date on which they are due. Certain work may be made up in cases of legitimate absence. The Instructor must be notified (email or in person) prior to the absence for the absence to be considered excused. Five points will be deducted for papers submitted late and up to five points will be added to papers submitted prior to the due date. Missed examinations must be made up prior to the next scheduled class period, unless arrangements are made with the Instructor.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: It is expected that members of the class will threat each other with respect and dignity. There will be many different views and opinions and no one should be chastised or ridiculed for their contribution to the class. Students should come to class properly prepared to discuss the scheduled lesson. No profanity. Unless the student is making a direct quote, they will conduct their speech as you would in a formal setting.
