This course prepares graduate students to teach R&C and gateway courses, consolidating skills and developing confidence in the classroom. The course will give students practical experience in creating and adapting materials for use in the classroom, while consolidating their understanding of the basic principles of teaching university-level reading and writing. This seminar is discussion based and is centered on student participation and in-class presentations by participants. This course will also deal with such practical matters as where and how to find resources on campus, how to structure class time, how to lead a discussion, how to use campus learning websites, how to create writing assignments and teach writing, and how to develop effective assessment that at once contributes to and can allow assessment of, a student’s attainment of course learning objectives. There will be no “lecture” style presentations.
