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.

Classroom Rules of Conduct:
The fundamental objective of this course is to learn. That means we must all work together and learn from each other. In order to accomplish this, we must treat each other with respect. Everyone will have the opportunity and freedom to express their ideas. Ultimately your education is your responsibility- you will get out of this course what you put in to it.
Some general rules to consider:
1. Please be neat with your food and drink and be sure to place all trash in the appropriate places. We are guests of the education center and should leave the room clean at the end of each session.
2. Cell phone use/texting is not allowed during class. All phones should be on vibrate and should not be answered in the classroom. Students who are texting during class will have their participation grade deducted and may be asked to leave the class if it becomes a habitual problem.
3. Classes start on time. Please be here by 5:30 and be ready to learn. Please plan to stay for the entire time. If we start late we may have to stay late. Do not abuse the break time for the same reason.
4. Please check your park email regularly. It is the sole medium for me to pass course messages to you. All emails to me must be to my park address-- do not send me email within the ecompanion website-- and include (PS101-Your Name) in the subject line. Emails that do not do this may be not read or deleted.
5. Your absence will be considered excused only if I receive notification from you BEFORE class.
6. TDY and other military obligations do not excuse you from course work. Please see me as far in advance as possible to ensure that you can keep up with the work.
7. Papers must be submitted to the ecompanion dropbox. Paper copies and attachments to emails are not acceptable. Papers delivered in this way will not be graded.
