I was a graduate teaching assistant for several years through both my masters and doctoral education, worked as an instructor at Hendrix College, and now am teaching at Northern State University. Throughout these several years, I’ve had the opportunity to teach a variety of courses within the discipline.

In addition to my syllabi (all in PDF format from the semester I most recently taught that particular course), I’ve also uploading the writing guide I hand out every semester and ask my students to read. Most don’t, of course, and it shows in the writing. I still give primarily written assignments and just due to the sheer practice they get out of the classes, many of them really improve their writing over the 15 weeks. Even better, many students actually notice their writing is improved!
