Instructor notes: This is a late start course that meets twice a week on the Oceanside campus.  It is primarily an onsite course (meeting Tu/Th).

+.75 hours will occur weekly online. As a late-start course, this class will make up the class meeting time that did not occur during the first two weeks (for a total of ~51 instructional hours). This will be done using an online format that is spread out evenly across the semester.

There are no exams.  Rather, you will participate in class, write ~12 short papers (including peer reviewing a fellow student's paper each time), respond to critical thinking questions for each class, and take five open workbook quizzes.

This is a great class to interact with fellow students and the Human Development course material, in addition to further developing your critical thinking and writing skills : )
