Last year Mr. McPartland’s class had twenty-two students, this year there is only eight students. When asked Mr. McPartland said that he likes both class sizes. He liked how the bigger class could have more discussions but he likes that the smaller class know eachother more. He said that he likes teaching the class and likes how the curriculum is set up. Mr. McPartland said that he likes how it’s more of an upper level class and likes how they can have more mature discussions about values, morals and ethics.
The class was originally suggested by Dr. Johnson. Both Mr. McPartland and Dr. Johnson attended a seminar about the class and decided that Boone should teach it. They both had to decide how they were going to teach it and how many semesters it would cover. They finally decided that the class would be taught for one semester.
