Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
I hold a masters in English and graduate certificate in Digital Humanities from Texas A&M University, where I worked for two years as a graduate assistant teacher and researcher. I have also worked as a freelance tutor for learners from elementary through college level, and I have many years of volunteer experience working with and teaching children in extracurricular activities.

My academic writing experience includes the book Cane and Able: Perspectives for Raising Successful Visually Impaired Children (a resource for parents and educators), the article “Charlotte’s Web: Words, Weaving, and Womanhood” in TAMU’s Explorations Volume 11, my masters thesis “Endurance and Hope: Christian Heroism in Tolkien’s Legendarium,” and an article currently under review, titled “Print’s Digital Analog: Amphibious Theories of Braille.”
There will be no homework, just in-class discussion and writing.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learner progress is assessed by informal in-class evaluation of participation and whether a learner's writing demonstrates grasp of the material.
1 hour per week in class, and no time outside of class.
