I have my PhD in composition, so that is mostly what I teach. I teach writing. I enjoy it and I am good at it. I can help my students to be good at writing and I like doing that.
However, in order to make some money, I agreed to teach a literature course in the mini-mester. And Iâ€™m thrilled! It turns out that the literature I will be teaching is British to 1800. Thatâ€™s all my favorite stuff. Weâ€™ll be doing Beowulf, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Chaucerâ€™s Canterbury Tales, and Gulliverâ€™s Travels.
I am very excited about it and am looking forward to it with great joy. Hope the students enjoy it too.
