PWR Pedagogy Program

PWR offers ENGLISH 397A, a pedagogy seminar for all graduate students (TAs) from English, Modern Thought and Literature, and Comparative Literature who teach PWR courses as part of their graduate studies. Taught in the Autumn Quarter, the pedagogy seminar focuses on syllabus design, developing writing assignments, and responding to student writing. The history of rhetoric and writing supplies a theoretical foundation as well as practical lessons for how to teach writing and research most effectively. In the Winter and Spring, graduate students continue their pedagogical development through a series of workshops and seminars focused on specific issues in the teaching of writing. Elements of the pedagogy program include class visits; group evaluation of writing assignments; workshops and lectures; a handbook on teaching; a library of teaching materials; a program web site with links to other writing program sites; and individual work with mentors and peers.
