Ask Tough Questions

"I strongly encourage my students to approach the world with a critical eye. How is it that the world has come to be the way it is? How is it that certain values, beliefs, and norms of behavior assume a position of dominance? By the end of the term, most students learn to critically question what was previously taken for granted."
