Bio

Dr. Cornell Thomas strives to create teaching and learning environments where all serve as both teacher and learner. Highly engaged, active, and experiential learning brings focus to every course that he plans and teaches. His primary focus here is to cause each learner to better understand who they are and the social, political, economic, and educational issues that impact all of our lives, though in often much different ways. He believes that we all share knowledge, research, and interpret personal experiences in these teaching and learning environments. Most important, we discuss the possibilities for improvement. While we discuss current classroom and school environments, much of our time is spent on the type of interchange that leads to actions designed to help make teaching and learning environments better, for all students. We work to empower ourselves, and others, to better understand the present and then find ways to improve the future.
