Profile

F. Yvonne McDonald has over twenty years of undergraduate teaching experience and has taught Introduction to Sociology, Social Problems, Writing and Computer Skills, Marriage and the Family, Sociology of the African-American, Cultural Diversity, Social Theory, Urban Communities, and Research Methods. For the past eight years, she has taught in the Department of Behavioral Sciences and Social Work (BSSW) at Winston-Salem State University.  She has taught online classes since 2004. 

Her philosophy of teaching is taken from an anonymous source:  Tell me and I forget, Show me and I remember; and Involve me and I understand.

She wants students to leave her classes with a myriad of hands-on experiences that involve (and engage) them to the extent that they understand and apply principles or concepts or theories long after they leave the classroom.
