I really love teaching this course, so hopefully this fact translates into fun, excitement and a great learning opportunity for all my students. There will be lots of critical thinking, reading (it's a must), and writing. This class is about exploring ideas of the criminal justice system and how it impacts our daily lives and more importantly our legal lives. Therefore, all students will be expected to interact on many levels through the use of visual media, class discussions, group activities, and the presentation of paper along with reading all required chapters before each class. Also included are lectures, quizzes, class dialogues, and examinations. In this class you will be asked to look at all information given in this class using critical thinking skills and examined for yourself the validity, the lifelong value to you, your family and the society in which you live in.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes

Late Submission of Course Materials:
Students must turn in Core Assignment on time. If a student fails to give 10 minute class presentation 100 points will be substracted from the core assignment / paper total.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Sometimes, if not most of the time we will discuss controversial topics and have people who disagree with each other. You and I both must remember that while each of us has a right to our own opinion, we must respect the right of others to have differing opinions. Calling someone or some idea "stupid or dumb" creates a defensive communication climate and hampers the ability of all of us to learn. Think before you criticize. Remember, what makes America great is that we do not have to ALL think alike!
If anyone in class makes a comment you are uncomfortable with, please contact me immediately and first. Apologies and policy changes are best handled in the classroom.
Profanity is never acceptable and will not be tolerated.
No side bars in class while others are speaking.
No cells phones, no texting, no reading emails in class, and no talking on your cell phones in class. If you must take a call leave the room 1st.
If you are going to be absence from class it is your responsibility to notify me before class. If you are absence from class it is your responsibility to make up missed assignments.
Being excussed from class does not include the following reasons;CHIEFS GAMES, Vegas, or Holiday Parties.
Please come talk to me personally when you have questions, concerns, or suggestions about the class. It is less frustrating for both of us if you ask questions before the assignment is due, rather than after it has already affected your performance or your grade. Do not email me 5 minutes before class about why you can not be there or why you will not be turning in a required assignment. If for some reason you can not hand in an assignments on time YOU must speak to me either in person or on the phone no voice mail, email or text will be accepted; this way there will be no misunderstandings.
