Academic Employment: Teaching the Craft of Writing

At the University of Notre Dame, I taught and coached the craft of writing in two small group seminar courses. The Freshman Writing Course and the Arts and Letters Core Course both existed, in part, to nurture writing and related communication skills across a broad range of subject matter in the humanities. I taught two semester-long sections of Freshman Writing and five year-long sections of the Arts and Letters Core Course.

More recently I taught World Literature and Western Humanities at Wilbur Wright College, one of the City Colleges of Chicago. Both courses identify improvement in written and oral communications skills as a primary learning outcome.

(At Notre Dame I also taught fifteen much larger sections of a survey course covering the Hebrew Bible, the New Testament, and early Christian history.)
