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

In this course we will study works by six important British women writers of the nineteenth century, three poets (Felicia Hemans, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, and Christina Rossetti) and three novelists (Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, and George Eliot), as well as discovering other, less well-known writers through class presentations.

1. The reading material for this course is challenging -- clearly Honors-level. Professors at other institutions are always surprised to hear that I teach works such as Aurora Leigh and Middlemarch -- and that the students love them.
2. Canvas posts on each day's reading assignment will encourage original critical thinking about the material and the exchange of ideas among students with different insights and interests. They will also contribute to the promotion of the goal of effective communication.
3. Class presentations will promote effective oral communication, build a community of thinkers, and allow students to contribute to one another's learning.
4. Students will be given wide latitude to develop their own topic for their final paper in consultation with me; interdisciplinary work that takes advantage of their knowledge in other fields (history, psychology, sociology, medicine, journalism) is strongly encouraged.

Additional Comments

Although my rank is only NTT Assistant Professor, I used to serve as Associate Director for the Honors College at MU (2001-2011), and I have a long record of successful Honors teaching at MU and an understanding of the unique challenge and rewards of Honors teaching. I have taught this course at MU many times with considerable success.
