Russ Kesler

Required Text: Dispatches from the Classroom: Graduate Students on Creative Writing Pedagogy, Drew, Rein, and Yost, eds.

We’ll read and discuss essays that address pedagogical and practical issues in the teaching of creative writing. Students will receive hands-on experience in grading and handling classroom scenarios. Each student will do a one-hour teaching presentation that will then be evaluated by class members. I teach the class as a true seminar, in which each class member is expected to contribute ideas and be a responsible citizen of the class.

We’ll read and discuss essays that address pedagogical and practical issues in the teaching of creative writing. We will examine samples of syllabi, rubrics, and other materials relevant to the teaching of a multi-genre CRW class. Students will receive hands-on experience in grading and handling classroom scenarios. Each student will do a one-hour teaching presentation that will then be evaluated by class members. I teach the class as a true seminar, in which each class member is expected to contribute ideas and be a responsible citizen of the class.
