Instructor: Malek             Wednesday            3:35-4:30pm

This practicum course for English Graduate Teaching Assistants extends the work begun at the GTA Orientation in supporting your teaching of Engl 1001. While the Practicum is grounded in theory, our concerns are with the practice of teaching writing itself: managing classroom activities, devising meaningful assignments, assessing student work, and keeping on top of the paper load.  We’ll have plenty of opportunities to discuss what’s going on in your freshman composition sections; to share ideas; assess what’s working, what isn’t and why, and to prepare for the next week’s work.
