Teaching Experience

In addition to drawing from my teaching and research experience, my pedagogy is informed by my work as a writing consultant at the University of Minnesota Duluth's Writers' Workshop and by my work as a writing tutor at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's Writing Center.

Intro to College Writing (WRIT 1120)

Fall 2018, Spring 2019

Following UMD's FYC curriculum, WRIT 1120 aimed to help students transfer knowledge about genre and the rhetorical situation into unfamiliar contexts. The course asked students to compose in a variety of genres, including a formal letter, online article for a specific publisher, and a public comment.

To help students understand how to write into unfamiliar genres, I paired the major assignments with texts that both conform with and depart from genre conventions we talk about in class and that students find through their own genre research.
