TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Spent nearly 20 years teaching public speaking and introduction to communication classes both full-time and part-time on the college level. I have worked with many of the textbooks and with a variety of types of supervisors. The last class I taught over a five-year period was an introduction to communication course with a focus on public speaking but it also contained units on interpersonal communication and group dynamics. I have professional experience as a journalist and for the last year have been working with a partner (professional journalist, teacher, journalism M.A.) to develop lesson plans and Prezis for a variety of university-level journalism courses. Those lesson plans are being posted here as well.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like a class that uses a variety of examples, from movie and TV clips, to current news stories, to interesting tidbits from history. The lesson plans incorporate videos, discussion questions, photographs and brief stories taken from a number of sources.
