Lesson Plans and Assignments
Academic Teaching Style:
I offer a two-layer approach to learning. First, we browse then, we go in for the kill via critical rereading. I introduce students to the complex material by bringing it down a notch. Then, I turn them loose to read primary sources and apply their own critical thinking skills. After which, we come together to peel the material apart piece by piece in hopes of gaining a deeper understanding of the complex issues. Finally, the students are encouraged to reread the material which will undoubtedly enrich the experience they have with the topic, not to mention help them on assignments.
