I have taught a range of undergraduate courses at the College of William & Mary. You will find syllabi for a representative selection below.
I taught Introduction to Women's Studies a number of times in the early 2000s, incorporating discussion of issues such as body image, international feminism, sexuality and racial identities.
I have taught a required course for the English major, British Literature II (a survey of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century British literature), a number of times. Recently, I redesigned the course so I could teach it in blended format. I split my class into two groups, so that students would have a seminar-style experience, rather than a lecture-based one. One of their two weekly sessions was completed online using a multi-media, interactive module, and the other weekly session was taught in person in a highly participatory format. My blended syllabus is below.
I have taught a range of upper-level courses and senior research seminars. See my syllabi below.
William & Mary in Washington
In Fall 2015, I was lucky enough to teach a program in the William & Mary in Washington Center, with my colleague in Geology, Professor Heather Macdonald. Our program was called "Working for Change: Social Movements in the Nation's Capital." Our students - from a wide variety of majors - completed full-time internships during the day, in a range of organizations and government agencies. They also took two academic courses, one organized around visiting speakers and site visits, and participated in a range of networking events at the Washington Center. See syllabi and other materials from the course below.
