Fall 2011 Students: Be sure to visit my class and teaching Web site for course materials and other information about Intro to Journalism and Writing Rhetorically.

Since January 2007 I have worked as a writing and journalism instructor at colleges in Massachusetts, including a one-year, full-time appointment to teach Communications Studies Department at Bridgewater State University. I set my classrooms up to treat my students as working writers and journalists, whether it is a required, freshman writing and composition course or an advanced class on Investigative Reporting. I plan to enroll in a PhD program in the fall of 2012 to continue pursuing my academic research interests, which include journalism, social media and writing for online readers.

I am currently scheduled to teach the following classes at Bridgewater State University in the Fall of 2011 (subject to change):

  • ENGL 101-030: Writing I (TuTh 8-9:15 am)
  • COMM 240-002: Introduction to Journalism (MWF 9:05-9:55 am)
  • COMM 240-003: Introduction to Journalism (TuTh 2-3:15 pm)

I will post the syllabus for each of the above courses later in the summer of 2011. Be sure to check out the posts and links below for more insight on my recent writing and thinking about pedagogy.
