Fall 2022 Detailed Description: Seminar in English Teaching: Teaching Writing

The two-semester Seminar in English Teaching is a secondary school methods course that is designed to prepare you for future teaching. The fall course (Engl 725) focuses on teaching writing, and the spring course (Engl 726) focuses on teaching reading and literature, although it is difficult and even undesirable to attempt to fully separate these elements of literacy.

Working collaboratively, we will examine and compare philosophies of English teaching and learning, and we will work together to develop your own approaches to writing and literacy teaching. We will discuss theoretical, pedagogical, and practical ideas about teaching and learning writing; engage in reading and writing exercises; design and practice instructional lessons, activities, and assessments; and evaluate teaching approaches in peer groups and conferences. The goal of Engl 725 and Engl 726 (which are equivalent to Engl 710 and 792) is for you to learn how to recognize and affirm writing and literacy skills, and to consider how they can help your own future students learn to write, comprehend, analyze, describe, and evaluate various texts.

During each term, you may also take the 2-credit lab (Engl 725L in Fall semesters & 726L in Spring semesters) and devote thirty hours to a practicum project in which you will teach in a local school or build research about the writing and literacy practices of young adults.

Fall 2022 Course Details

How can we talk about environmental crisis? What words can we use to represent the natural world—and human interactions with it? Is it possible to describe nature without cultural projections? How can language change vision, policy, action? In this course, we will grapple with the urgent need to articulate environmental issues by reading contemporary critics who are inventing vocabularies to do so, such as Rob Nixon on “slow violence” and Stacy Alaimo on “trans-corporeality.” We’ll read 19th-21st century writers who write about different environments from different perspectives, shaped in part by race, gender, indigeneity, and class: Henry David Thoreau, John Muir, Mary Austin, Rachel Carson, Barry Lopez, Evelyn White, Joy Harjo, and Octavia Butler. We’ll read ecocriticism by Carolyn Merchant, Elizabeth DeLoughrey, Bruno Latour, and Kimberly Ruffin. We’ll explore ecofeminism, environmental justice, postcolonial ecology, and the concept of the Anthropocene. Students taking 736 for Women’s Studies credit will write papers that focus on women writers or on gender and the environment. Writing intensive. Satisfies a post-1800 literature requirement for English majors. In fall 2022, this class fulfills a DH requirement for the TBD major. Students taking 897M will write a graduate-level research paper; students taking 897M for credit towards a Graduate Certificate in Feminist Studies will also write such a paper and will focus their written work on women writers, ecofeminist theory, or gender and the environment.

Fall 2022 Special Topic: Revenge Tragedy, Then & Now

This seminar will take an in-depth look at the long history of revenge tragedy, one of Western culture's most venerable genres. The very origins of tragedy can be traced to tales of revenge, and those stories raise enduring questions about our tribal loyalties and hatreds, justice and the law, the proper and improper uses of violence, guilt, repentance and forgiveness, and the role of divine and impersonal forces in human affairs. After discussion of classical tragedies by Aeschylus and Seneca, we will then move to the age of Shakespeare and sample some of the great early English achievements in the genre, among them Thomas Kyd's The Spanish Tragedy, Shakespeare's Hamlet and Othello, and Thomas Middleton's The Revenger's Tragedy. From there we'll turn our attention to modern outgrowths of this genre, looking at examples of revenge in modern plays, contemporary young adult novels, and action and horror films. Along the way we'll have occasion to consider why revenge has remained such a popular topic over time, how the morality of revenge has changed, why audiences identify with revengers, and how revenge is linked to questions of social justice. This course will culminate with a long research paper of your own design, which this seminar will teach you how to complete step-by-step.
