I have been a Lecturer at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago since 2013. This year, I am teaching two courses: “The Concept of Faith” and “Skepticism.” Both of these are “First Year Seminar” courses in the Liberal Arts department; their primary aim is to teach college-level writing skills. My most recent syllabi are linked below.
I find it helpful to devote some class time each week to teaching writing skills. I’ve included a few (robustly field-tested) handouts and exercises that I’ve found useful for that purpose below.
Feel free to use the above exercises for individual or classroom purposes, but please ask me before re-using in any other context.
Good teaching is extremely important to me. See my teaching statement below for a description of the approach I take to teaching.
