Educational Philosophy: My educational philosophy is to encourage student engagement by using a variety of learning opportunities. Readings, lectures, demonstrations, discussions, internet resources, videos, writings, group activities, field work, mapping, Socratic seminars, quizzes, and examinations are common activities that may be utilized. My goal is to create a positive, interactive, challenging, engaging, lively, and even potentially confusing (believe it or not) classroom environment. But my success in doing so is largely dependent upon you. Your willingness to engage in all learning opportunities, think critically, ask questions, and share your knowledge and perspectives is ultimately what will make this a meaningful course.
