MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to use creative, artistic, differentiated pedagogies. I constantly promote free-choice reading, use interdisciplinary journal prompts and help students explore different forms of creative writing. I like a variety of discussion forms like literature circles and fishbowl discussions, but particularly focus on developing the group dynamics required for round-table discussions.
