The Campus Writing Program conducts a two-day faculty workshop to assist with the design and implementation of your writing intensive course. Once your course proposal has been approved by the Campus Writing Program, you will receive information on time, date and location of the workshop.
Indicate below if additional instructors are planned, but specific individuals have not yet been chosen. Check all that apply

Briefly describe the qualifications of the known graduate instructors, or planned qualifications if graduate instructors are still to be selected, bearing in mind that graduate students teaching honors courses should be advanced students with a record of excellent teaching.
 

Honors Course Information

This interdisciplinary course covers the art, music, literature and philosophy from the mid 19th centure to the present, from Marx's Communist Manifesto in 1848 to Moises Kaufman's The Laramie Project in 2000. Incidentially, this latter play will be performed at Rhynsburger in April, and we are hoping to take the humanities to see the production. As far as honors content goes, we are teaching some challenging texts (Nietzche, Woolf, Rawls, Kushner) at a fairly rapid pace. The course material alone makes this class especially suited for honors students, and the design (one large lecture + 2 discussions/week) capitalizes upon the expertise of MU faculty not teaching in the sequence to set up in-depth discussions for teaching faculty who aren't, sadly, experts in every humanities discipline in the world.

Additional Comments

I have attached both our general syllabus for all sections and my discussion section syllabus from two years ago as an example of a typical section syllabus. The dates will change, of course, but the basic assignments will remain the same. All sections abide by the general syllabus and agree to have both a take-home midterm and a cumulative all-section final exam.
