Educational Philosophy: I will be using a lecture-based method, teaching from the textbooks supplied as well as an outline handout I have prepared. Classroom interaction and guided discussion of the assigned readings will be the primary methed of learning, with occasional quizzes that will have no bearing on the final grade, but to serve both as a reminder for the student to review past lessons and a way for me to gauge general trends in retention and understanding among the students.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Core Assessment Grading Rubric: Due at the end of Week 6
Abstract (10 points): The abstract should be 40-60 words in length.

1. America’s paradoxical love-hate relationship with war

Communication Skills covered by these "writing mechanics" are part of the class rubric - see the course syllabus. This is also important to the discipline of History so that you can clearly convey your ideas to your reader. Keep in mind, however, that the large majority of the paper's point value (80%) is based on the content.
Total Possible: 100 points
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment: There will be two examinations and a paper.
Late Submission of Course Materials: Students should strive to meet the assigned due dates for the stages of the paper, but the focus is on completion rather than timeliness, given the wide range of schedules and hectic operational tempo aboard the ship. Therefore, late work will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, with the understanding that personal responsibility in the students is expected to prevent the work from becoming overwhelming.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Since discussion is a major tenet of the learning process, active participation is not only expected, it is part of the grade. However, arguing between students, excessive profanity, and other unprofessional behavior will not be tolerated.
The paper will be broken down into stages to demonstrate a standard method for writing academic papers. Each stage will have a due date, culminating in the paper itself due by the end of the semester.
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 2011-2012 Undergraduate Catalog Page 93
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 2011-2012 Undergraduate Catalog Page 93Lying, cheating, or stealing will not be tolerated.
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.
Park University 2011-2012 Undergraduate Catalog Page 96The difference between "Excused" or "Unexcused" is as simple as an email. If it is work related, expect me to follow up with your OIC, as well as meet with you to discuss the assigned reading and pass anything shared in class. This way you can still earn your participation grade.
Disability Guidelines:Park University is committed to meeting the needs of all students that meet the criteria for special assistance. These guidelines are designed to supply directions to students concerning the information necessary to accomplish this goal. It is Park University's policy to comply fully with federal and state law, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, regarding students with disabilities. In the case of any inconsistency between these guidelines and federal and/or state law, the provisions of the law will apply.
