Teaching Philosophy:

The first duty of the teacher is to generate a love for the subject on the part of the student. While Jeanette Francis as a teacher must thoroughly cover the core area of instruction, she feels that she must encourage her students to develop greater depths of understanding and be passionate about the topics at hand. In her online classes she stimulates her students to bring up real life and current situations to illustrate important points. A teacher must emphasize application, creative thinking and development of ideas, and not weigh the course down with transmission of information, as nowadays information is freely available. A teacher must also emphasize the skills of learning on their own, as change is rapid in the information age and students must learn to learn. Finally, Francis believes that a teacher must create an environment of mutual trust and confidence in the class so that students know that they can be wrong in classroom interaction, and that this is a necessary step in learning.
