Teaching

As a critical constructivist, my goal is to contextualize course topics in larger societal and cultural frames so students understand that crime and the criminal justice system do not exist in a vacuum but are influenced by and influences society at large. My general approach to the classroom is a mixture of lecture and discussion.
