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 course seeks to nurture each student's creative potential in a collaborative classroom setting and through one-on-one interactions with the professor by assisting each student in exploring career explorations in the field of law that may be a good fit for that student's talents and interests.

This course seeks to encourage students to grow in their ability to communicate effectively with professional attorneys through experiential learning opportunities and Q&A sessions in class.

This course seeks to strengthen students’ aptitude for critical thinking through a series of reflective essays in which students will reflect upon their strengths, weaknesses, and interactions with the law and legal professionals.

I have read and reviewed the updated proposal

Additional Comments

I listed Justin Dyer as my Chair because I am teaching this course as part of my course load for the Kinder Institute on Constitutional Democracy, of which he is the Director.

This syllabus changes slightly each semester as I confirm visits by local attorneys and as additional opportunities for experiential learning are added to the law school calendar.

I will offer this course either in Fall 2017 or Spring 2018. My course load for 2017-2018 won't be approved until late February, so I thought I should submit the course in case I teach it this Fall. If I won't be teaching it this Fall, please let me know what process should I follow to remove it as a Fall 2017 listing.

Finally, my phone number auto populates with the wrong number. My correct phone number is 573-882-2533.

Thanks!

I was unsure what to list for workload percentage. This course comprises 1/12 of my 2016-2017 12 hour course load.
