I believe in the Socratic Method, whereby the teacher and students produce the learning together, not only by answering questions, but by questioning answers. Therefore, discussion, disagreement, analysis and argument about the issues presented in the text, lectures, videos and other materials presented in class is encouraged and required, while maintaining respect for the opinions of others. I employ current technology, creativity and imaginiation to make information accessible to as many learning styles as possible, and to connect classroon learning to current events. Students should be prepared to apply critical thinking skills to all the issues and opinions presented, especially their own.
