The Agora

A Place for Rhetoric and Sophistry


One of the most rewarding aspects of my job is working with writing teachers who are new to teaching or new to our program. Each year, I mentor eight new teachers through our course "Introduction to Teaching Composition" (English 505A and 505B). It's exciting to work with people who are trying something new.

Each year brings new challenges, so my policies and syllabus change to suit them. Here are my policies and syllabus if you want to check them out:
