Educational Philosophy: My educational philosophy is based on bringing the student to the table for critical thinking. A variety of teaching methods are employed according to the learning objectives and the available environmental setting. Students will be required to engage, explore, explain, elaborate, and evaluate topics about the history of psychology.

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. Park University students and faculty members are encouraged to take advantage of the University resources available for learning about academic honesty (www.park.edu/current or http://www.park.edu/faculty/).from Park University 2010-2011 Undergraduate Catalog Page 92I take academic honesty seriously. I will actively monitor student work to assure that it is indeed the student's work. If I discover any academic dishonesty, at the very least the assignment in question will be given no credit. If it appears that the academic dishonesty in question is part of a larger pattern of dishonesty, I will pursue more severe measures that include the possibility of expulsion from class and from the university. I welcome any discussion or question about academic dishonesty.
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. from Park University 2010-2011 Undergraduate Catalog Page 92-93When a student comes to me with questions about plagiarism before an assignment is turned in it will not be dishonest. If I discover plagiarism and then the student asks questions about it, the student will still have engaged in plagiarism which is one form of academic dishonesty. If this occurs, I will proceed as I would in any case of academic dishonesty.
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.
