I primarily teach composition. In my composition courses, I focus on the process of developing a strong, polished paper. I have my students write in class and we work as a class to make the papers stronger. In my literature classes, we discuss the works I've assigned using careful analysis. The students look at the language of the texts to make strong arguments.
