Teaching

Over the past two decades I have taught many different classes throughout the political science, sociology, and criminology/criminal justice curriculum at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Class sizes have ranged from a handful of students to large lecture halls filled to capacity. I enjoy teaching and I am constantly changing my approach to accommodate to the needs of my students. My pedagogical approach varies based on the subject, level, and sophistication of the students. This can range from straight lecture style, to seminar format, to scenario development, case study analysis, and role playing. Because of Middle States accreditation requirements, I have been involved in the selective assessment of my courses. Below is a listing of classes that I have taught organized by subject specialization.
