What do I teach?
English 1101 and English 1102, online and face-to-face sections:
These courses focus on developing and strengthening writing skills. We read the work of professional writers in a range of genres, including fiction, essays, and poetry. We hold class discussions about these works. We talk about best practices for our own writing skills. We write, we edit, and we revise. Online classes require engagment with other students in the course. If you take a class online, be prepared to post to discussion boards, make a video, and post the video to YouTube with a link in D2L. Both of these courses are part of the core requirement.
Introduction to Creative Writing:
This course is based on a workshop format. Everyone in the class will generate poems and short stories and share these works with the class. This course is a great option for students interested in pursuing publication or students who are curious about what it means to be a creative writer. We also discuss our favorite authors, read examples of their works, and go to poetry readings together.
This course counts as a Humanities elective in any major pathway, or part of Area F for English majors. This is also a discussion-based class focusing on writers identified with the Latin American diaspora. Students interested in diverse perspectives would be interested in this course.
