The adjunct instructor's educational philosophy is one of interactiveness based on lectures, readings, quizzes, class dialogues, examinations, videos, web sites, and required term paper, and one paper- Ten Questions. The instructor's will engage each student in what is referred to as disputatious learning to encourage the lively exploration of ideas, issues as it relates to the criminal justice field, our society, and our communities. The class room environment will foster the process of critical thinking whereby all information is critically examined to allow the students conduct a logical analysis in arriving at conclusions about the validity and value of community justice.
