ENWR 1510: Accelerated Academic Writing: Sex & Gender

Department of English, University of Virginia | 2013–2014

A first-year college course in argument and rhetoric that taught academic writing through a thematic focus on gender and sexuality. In crafting my own curriculum, I selected readings to provide an introduction to gender and queer theory, with attention to current concerns in American culture (e.g., rape culture), and developed paper assignments to challenge students and encourage their implementation of course concepts into their own essay writing.

ENWR 2300: Writing Poetry

Department of English, University of Virginia | 2012–2013

An introductory creative writing class for undergraduates, for which I designed my own curriculum to teach analytic reading skills alongside the craft elements of formal and free verse poetry writing.
